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
- 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.
