Child Support Archives

Let's talk about child support payments

As a parent, you would do anything for your child. During your marriage, you and your wife or husband worked diligently to not only raise them the right way, but to make sure that the relationship you shared with your significant other was in the best shape that it could possibly be in. 

Seven Changes To Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines

There are new child support guidelines that have been in effect in Massachusetts since September 15 of 2017 These changes are not retroactive, and so if you already have an order in place, you don't need to worry. But if a child support order will be a part of your divorce after September 15, these changes in the law will apply to you.

Three ways to maximize your back-to-school shopping power

If you have been paying attention to recent commercials or the change in displays at Target or Wal-Mart, the back-to-school shopping season is in full swing, even though we haven’t touched August 1st yet. Retailers want to get out in front of the competition as early as possible, but divorcing and separated parents may not have as much money to spend because of a breakup. Meanwhile, the costs of notebooks, clothing and electronics that kids need for a new school year will probably rise.

Ensuring your children receive fair child support after divorce

If you are divorcing and valuable assets are part of your divorce, you already understand how complicated the issues can be. These assets affect child support, with the amount of payments determined in part by the income of both parents. Adding to the issue is the standard of living your children have enjoyed throughout their lives. It is probably fair to say that they deserve to continue enjoying their current standard of living.

How to get your child support payments modified

If you need to have your child support payments modified, you typically can by following a child support modification process through the courts or by making an agreement with your ex-spouse. If you can't support the amount of money you're expected to pay, it's important to act quickly to get your modification set into action; if you don't, you could start owing back child support, which can be expensive.
