The Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines provide a mathematical formula for payment of child support. Child support is based on the gross weekly incomes of the parents, daycare costs, health/vision/dental insurance, custody arrangements, and other factors. Without experienced and knowledgeable counsel, you could end up receiving too little child support or paying too much in child support.
Popovitch Law LLC has experience calculating and presenting Massachusetts Child Support Guideline calculations considering:
- Overtime/Second Jobs
- Self-Employed Parent [concern that income is not reported]
- High Wage Earners
- Underemployment or Unemployment [fighting for “Attribution of Income.”]
- Extracurricular Activities and Camp
- Parenting Time Percentages
- Whether Child Support should be paid by parents of children who are over age 18
Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines can be calculated according to parenting time percentages – this can either increase the guideline calculation or decrease it to your benefit. i.e. less than 1/3; 1/3-50%, 50%.
