It never hurts to do your research

Researching Massachusetts child support law will help you know what topics to discuss with your attorney. Use these frequently asked questions as a starting point:

  • How do Massachusetts judges calculate child support payments? In general, judges follow state child support guidelines. However, your judge can make exceptions based on your income or your spouse's income, your children's health or day care costs and your children's ages, to name a few.
  • What if you or your spouse makes over $100,000? Massachusetts child support guidelines don't apply when the noncustodial parent's gross income exceeds $100,000 or the parents' combined gross income exceeds $135,000. The decision will be up to the judge. That's why it's so important to hire a qualified child support attorney to represent you.
  • Will child support awards affect your taxes? Yes. Child support payments aren't deductible or considered taxable income. Contact The Law Office of John K. Leslie to learn more.
