Child Support Law

Boston Child Support Lawyers

Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines

While child support is primarily determined based on a set of state-approved guidelines, the specific costs included in the determination varies from case to case. Working with an experienced family law attorney is essential to ensure assessed child support covers any additional costs beyond standard care.

At Grindle Robinson & Goodhue LLP, we are committed to providing the highest quality of ethical practice and client service in all matters of divorce and family law. For more than 30 years, our firm has been recognized for the effective, sophisticated and creative solutions we obtain on behalf of our clients. From our office in Wellesley, we represent clients throughout the west Boston metropolitan area.

Obtaining Fair Child Support Orders

While we understand child support is most often factually-driven, we work with clients to establish any particular needs that must be covered, such as:

  • Additional costs for special needs children
  • Educational costs for private education, extra-curricular activities, etc.
  • Day care expenses
  • Other costs involved in raising a child

We use our in-depth knowledge of Massachusetts state child support guidelines and years of family law experience to help clients obtain fair financial support orders.

Our Boston child support attorneys are recognized leaders in handling all aspects of family law. All of our family lawyers have been selected for inclusion in the Massachusetts Super Lawyers list.

Modifying Child Support Obligations

Modifying an existing child support order requires that a parent provide evidence of what the court would consider a significant change in circumstances. Situations such as job loss, relocation or remarriage are common instances in which parents may seek child support modification. We advise clients on their rights in seeking modification and pursue their interests in the most efficient, cost-effective manner possible.
