New Child Support Guidelines In Massachusetts
On August 1, 2013, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts changed the guidelines that judges use to determine child support. While the old guidelines relied mostly on a mathematical formula to arrive at a support number, the new guidelines give judges much more flexibility and discretion. We advocate that this change should help judges minimize the tax impact on families and create fairer results.
Our firm can help you understand the factors to present to the court in order to obtain a child support order that protects your rights. In addition, we can help you with other aspects of family law that will affect your children’s safety and financial stability, including:
- Child custody
- Visitation rights
- Modifications of child custody and support
- Spousal support and alimony
Every parent wants to do what is right for his or her children, and ensuring that their basic financial needs are met is the main goal in every child support case. We understand the difficulties that parents face and strive to provide personal service and commonsense problem solving that protects their rights and the rights of their children.
