CHILD SUPPORT IN MA
The biological or adoptive parent of a child is expected to support the child financially.
Child support is paid with after-tax dollars and is not disclosed on the parents’ tax returns.
The 'Mass.Guidelines for Child Support' govern CS in Mass.
A worksheet is used to figure CS and takes these factors into acc.:
cost of daycare
Health ins. premiums
Number of children
The worksheet sets a child related 'budget” and the portion each parent is assumed to contribute.
The amount of time each parent has with the child/ren affects who pays and how much.
There is some flexibility that is built into the system.
