Common Question – How much child support will I pay or receive

Massachusetts, like all states, is federally mandated to establish child support guidelines. These guidelines take into account several factors; most importantly gross income and number of children, and then establish a child support amount.

The guidelines can be adjusted; a common example would be for a non-custodial parent having several overnight visits per week.

The state offers a child support calculator at https://wfb.dor.state.ma.us/DORCommon/Worksheets/CSE/Guidelines.aspx.
