Wellesley Child Support Attorney

Framingham Child Support Enforcement/Alimony Lawyer

Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines

Mass courts apply a set of guidelines to income of both parents, that determines the amount of child support to be awarded to the custodial parent. The calculation includes all earned and unearned income. The guidelines also provides for the situation in which there is shared physical custody.

If you have questions about your prospective Massachusetts child support obligations in your pending divorce, or what you should expect to receive as a custodial parent, call the Law Office of Shelah T. Feiss, in Wellesley. We can sit down together with your financial information and I will apply the formula to see how the state guidelines will affect your case. I will also use my experience and knowledge of child support law to determine what income or financial assets, or debt obligations, can be excluded from the formula.

I can also help you arrange a modification of your current child support obligation, or enforce child support payments if the non-custodial parent is in contempt of the judgment or in arrears.
