Child Support

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.
