Family Law Representation in Massachusetts

Child support is money paid by one parent to another to meet the children’s financial needs. Generally, the parent with primary custody receives payments from the non-custodial parent. If you need help with a child support issue, call The Ostendorf Law Group, P.C. Our child support attorneys in Seekonk represents clients throughout Eastern Massachusetts.

Call (508) 434-4043 to learn how Massachusetts child support law affects your situation.

How Child Support Is Determined

Where the children live and the income of both parents are important factors used to calculate child support payments in Massachusetts. In addition, the court may consider a broad range of other factors when awarding child support. Our Seekonk child support lawyers can provide information about how the law and standards for calculating support apply to your situation.

The court may also consider factors such as:

  • Parenting time
  • Number of children
  • Childcare expenses
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Health insurance coverage
  • Extraordinary medical expenses

Support is calculated a bit differently when both parents have equal parenting time and responsibility. The same formula is used twice, based on the salary of each parent. The difference between the two incomes is used to determine the amount of support paid from the parent with greater financial resources to the lower earning parent.

Enforcing & Modifying Child Support Orders

Parents are required to follow child support orders. If your spouse is not abiding by the existing court order, there are steps that can be taken to enforce the order. However, when circumstances change, a child support order may need to be modified. A substantial change in circumstances may lead the court to modify an existing order. Our attorneys represent clients in enforcement actions and modifications.

We encourage you to call (508) 434-4043 for a consultation to discuss support orders or modifications.
