Child Support Calculations: A Clear Formula Based On Less-Than-Clear Data

Child support is calculated under the Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines. This is a specific formula that is based on the gross income of each parent and certain deductions such as health insurance costs. Under state law, a support order can remain in place until the child graduates from college or turns 23, whichever occurs first.

Although both parties are required to complete a financial statement, even honest statements leave room for discrepancy. We understand complex financial data and know how to analyze income to help ensure that the calculation is accurate.
