Child Support

In Massachusetts, the Courts use the Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines to determine the amount of support one parent should pay the other.  These guidelines consider the parties’ incomes, the number of children, the daycare costs of the children and the cost of health insurance to both parties.

While the Court is normally required to implement the child support guidelines, there are certain circumstances that would allow the Court to deviate from those guidelines and enter a different order.

At Fraier & Maillet, we will discuss and explore your specific circumstances to not only calculate the guidelines, but also to determine whether yours is a case that would warrant an order that is less than or more than the suggested guidelines figure.
