Wellesley Child Support Attorney
Helping Parents Establish Child Support Orders
Tomasino Legal Group in Wellesley provides clear guidance about child support
in relation to
divorce, modification, contempt or
paternity cases. In Massachusetts, family law dictates calculation of child support
payments, pursuant to the Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines. An experienced
child support lawyer can help you ensure that payment amounts are calculated fairly.
MA Child Support Guidelines
In most cases, calculating child support payments is a fairly straightforward matter.
Payments will be based on:
- The number of children
- The income of both parents
- The amount of time that will be spent with the children by each parent
In some cases, there may be room for deviation from the guidelines. The
income calculation can become difficult, particularly if one party is
self-employed or works for a closely held family business. Our legal team
can still take care to ensure that child support is paid at the appropriate
level in light of all the circumstances involved.
Child Support Contempt
If the child's other parent has failed to make child support payments
in a timely manner,
enforcement options are available. Of course, the primary goal is to get the money
needed to raise your child, and the law firm will take all available steps
to accomplish that goal. Assistance may be sought from the court to hold
the nonpaying parent in contempt.
Have you been accused of not paying child support? Perhaps you have fallen
behind because of a job loss, an injury or illness, or another reason,
and you need to address the issue of child support arrearages. Perhaps
you have paid your obligations but face a contempt filing. A divorce attorney
at Tomasino Legal Group can help you understand your options and defend
you against contempt, including filing a complaint for
modification due to a change in circumstances.
