Child Support is awarded so that children can have the best quality of life despite the financial differences of the parent’s two disparate households.
Massachusetts is required to review the Child Support Guidelines every four years and the most recent Child Support Guidelines became effective October 4, 2021. These new Guidelines will impact current and future child support and possibly prior support orders, which may be modified.
However, sometimes deviations from the calculations are warranted. For example, the court can attribute income to an underemployed parent or impute income to an unemployed parent who unreasonably remains out of the workforce.
Whether you are seeking an initial child support order or a modification to an order currently in place due to a change in your or the other parent’s circumstances, Kantrowitz Law Group’s attorneys have time-tested experience obtaining new or revised child support in the best interest of children.
