After going through a divorce or child custody case you may be faced with important financial decisions regarding the needs of your children. The financial future of your children is an important issue that must be handled in the proper manner. Ensuring the financial needs of your child are met is the main goal in every child support case.
In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts every child has the right to receive financial support from his or her parents no matter their marital status. Both parents have a duty to support their child and child support cases dictate the amount of money the non-custodial parent pays to the custodial parent for the care and support of the child. The amount of support depends on a set of factors that make up the Child Support Guidelines
These guideline takes into account the gross income of each party as well as the number of children, their ages, cost of child care and the cost of health insurance. In 2013 the Commonwealth of Massachusetts changed the Child Support Guidelines. These new guidelines give judges more flexibility and discretion when it comes to making decisions regarding child support cases
