Common Question – It has been many years since my child support order, Can I get it adjusted

Yes, your child support order can be adjusted and should be revisited every now and again to ensure you are paying or receiving the correct amount.

Child support is most often determined by the way of federally mandated guidelines. These guidelines will adjust over time. Also, income may go up or down. Thus, your child support order may be too high or too low as compared to when it first entered.

In order to have the support adjusted a complaint for modification must be filed with the Court.

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