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 incomes 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 child’s standard of living. The custodial parent is presumed to spend such amount on the child only.
  • Based on the child support guidelines, the court determines and approves the support amount for the education, health care and recreational facilities of the child.
