Get Legal Help in Determining Support Calculations

In Massachusetts, child support is calculated under a specific formula based on each parent’s gross income and certain deductions, including health care costs. Under the state law, a support order can remain in place until the child either graduates from college or turns 23, whichever comes first. However, even when both parties complete an honest financial statement, there are discrepancies. As your representative, we apply our understanding of complex financial data and income analysis to ensure that the child support calculation is accurate.
