Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
The parent here in NJ is obligated to pay support here.The child could file in NJ seeking such support if they are living on their own.The court would hear it and may award support until age 21.NJ child support applies here if he lives in NJ.The thing you need to be careful of is that if child files here in NJ both of you are liable to pay support even if you reside in another state.So the court might award support here from both of you to the child if he files.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
Once he is in NJ he can sign up with the state.
