Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines

As with other states, child support amounts are set in Massachusetts by statute. The level of payment obligation is determined by such factors as the income of each parent, number of children and medical insurance costs. Joint physical custody or sole physical custody can also affect the support level.

Occasionally, the support obligation deviates from the statute because judges have authority to diverge from these guidelines. An experienced divorce attorney can persuade them to do so in special circumstances. This variance from the law can be very important in high-asset divorces. Deviations can include accommodations for health care, day care, extracurricular activities and any other important issues in the children’s lives that may require monetary support.

In some situations, it may be in your best interest to arrange an unallocated support payment, which provides financial benefits to both parents.

She Was Aggressive And Never Backed Down

I found Lisa through reviews and was not disappointed. Lisa and her staff were great! They were very supportive and explained everything. She was aggressive and never backed down, even when I wanted to settle. She always looked out for my best interest, even when I didn’t want to. I can’t recall a single debate she lost during the entire case. If I were ever in a similar situation again (which will not be anytime in the foreseeable future!), I would call Lisa.
