Massachusetts Child Support Laws

HomeChild Support MassachusettsMassachusetts Child Support Laws

The Massachusetts Child Support Laws make both the parents of a child responsible for taking care of its primary needs.

  • The guidelines prescribe a hybrid form of the income shares and percentage of income models for determining the child support amount.
  • The non-custodial parent will be required to make support payments to the custodial parent for maintaining a child’s standard of living. The custodial parent is presumed to spend such an amount on the child only.
  • Based on the child support guidelines, the court determines and approves the support amount for the child’s education, health care, and recreational facilities.
