Experience to Get You the Most Under Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines
Massachusetts has child support guidelines that allow support obligations to be calculated based on both parents' incomes, each parent's share of custody, the number of children each parent is responsible for supporting, and several other factors.
Determining child support can be fairly straightforward when all of that information is available and uncontested. However, we are very experienced at identifying when to contest what we are being told, such as when your former spouse may try to hide his or her income. We also often successfully argue that you deserve a better outcome because there are special considerations in your case.
Fighting to Modify and Enforce Your Child Support Order
- Modifications: If you need to modify an existing child support decree due to job loss, new parenting responsibilities or any other changed circumstance, we can strongly advocate for a court-ordered modification. We also help clients oppose modifications.
- Contempt of court: When you and your child do not get your support payments, we will fight to enforce your former spouse's child support payment obligations in a contempt action. If you have been targeted with a contempt action, we can help you seek a solution to the problem that works for you.
