When parents separate or divorce, it takes a toll on children. Their futures are filled with uncertainty and working out a custody and visitation agreement can go a long way to bring renewed structure into their young lives. When parents cannot agree, you can look to the family court system in Massachusetts to put a custody and visitation order in place that reflects the child’s best interests. A judge will consider which parent has been the primary caregiver, who can provide the most stable home life, their backgrounds and other factors that could impact a child’s day-to-day upbringing. These court mandates can outline the child’s residence and how much time each parent will be able to spend.
In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, parents are financially responsible for their dependent children. Whether a parent has physical custody of a child, visitation or is estranged, support must be maintained so that a child can have an economically stable life. Whether you are asking the court for a support order or believe you are being asked to carry more than your fair share, the Law Office of Michelle M. Murray knows the intricacies of the Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines and can help you navigate the system. We’re here to help.
