Child Support Laws in MA

According to Massachusetts child support law, the noncustodial parent must contribute financially to child-rearing, often in the form of fixed regular payments to the custodial parent. The amount can be determined by both parties. In the event an agreement cannot be reached, child support is determined according to the state’s child support guidelines and a variety of factors.

The following are the common factors when determining child support in Massachusetts:

  • Incomes of both parents, such as salaries and wages, social security, trusts, retirement pensions, etc.
  • Number of children
  • Ages of the children
  • Childcare costs
  • Health insurance and extraordinary medical expenses
  • Other support orders

Payments can either be exchanged privately between the parties or through income assignment. Furthermore, the noncustodial parent is expected to contribute to the child’s clothing, transportation, and even gifts, which doesn’t count toward child support payments.
