Child Support

Stoughton Child Support Lawyers

At Walters Law Offices, PC, we understand that providing for a child may be financially challenging. When a divorce involves children, it is important to make sure child support orders are carefully calculated. Stoughton child support attorney Kevin Walters can help.

Child Support Guidelines

In Massachusetts, there are mandated guidelines that need to be followed when making determinations regarding child support payments. The guidelines take into account a variety of factors in order to determine the amount. The amount will be driven primarily by each parent’s income, as well as the number of children. Child custody and parenting plan arrangements may also play a role in the calculation of child support.

If you are you worried about getting the appropriate amount of child support to provide for your child’s needs, or if you are concerned that you may be asked to pay an unfair amount, we will be vigilant to assure that no income sources or exceptions to the norm are overlooked and that all factors are taken into consideration. We will pursue an outcome that makes sense based on the situation and the needs of your children.

When Child Support Gets Complicated

Child support is not always as straightforward as the guidelines suggest. There are various issues that can make calculations complicated. Perhaps your child has a medical condition that results in unusually high health care costs that need to be taken into account. Possibly extracurricular activities or college expenses are factors. In some instances, a party may believe that the other parent is attempting to hide or reduce income in order to avoid paying child support. Conversely, in some cases income is higher than contemplated by the guidelines. Regardless, in each case we are prepared to address your particular concerns or challenges.

We also handle child support enforcement and child support modifications when needed.
