Dedham Child Support Lawyers
Experienced Child Support Attorneys in Dedham, MA
The state of Massachusetts requires parents to provide for their children, even if they may not have full custody of their child. They must still care for their child with financial provisions by giving the parent with physical custody a monthly payment. This money is to help raise the child and ensure their needs are met. Parents who need child support or who may be required to pay child support should hire an experienced attorney who can guide them through this complex process. Parents who fail to obtain an attorney often receive or pay an unfair amount. At Miller Law Group, P.C., we are dedicated to helping parents obtain a financially fair child support agreement that gives our clients an ideal outcome while providing for their children. We develop strong strategies to help our clients achieve their desired results with minimal cost, stress, or pain.

Child Support Plans in Massachusetts
When creating a child support agreement, the court will investigate the parents’ and child’s situation. Unlike other states, Massachusetts doesn’t have set amounts or percentages for child support. The court understands every case is different, so they analyze the facts of each situation and decide on the child support amount needed to raise the child.
The factors that Massachusetts judges and courts will consider for child support plan include:
- Parenting time (custody & visitation)
- Each parent’s income
- Estimated cost of childcare
- Extraordinary medical expenses
- Extracurricular activities
- Relationship to alimony
- Additional revenue (commissions, bonuses, etc.)
- Health insurance coverage
- Number of children
- And more
Can Modifications Be Made to Child Support Agreements?
If you or your former spouse go through a significant financial change, you can request a child support modification. For example, if you lost your job or the recipient parent got a raise, you can request a child support modification.
The court may grant child support modifications if:
- The payment amount would be different after being recalculated using current standards
- Health insurance costs changed or were previously not available, and now it is
- Or any other substantial financial change occurred
