Cooperation and open communication to raise a child post-split

Massachusetts parents who are divorcing will have an additional aspect to negotiate: child support. While the ideal situation is one where the support amount is reached in an amicable environment, that is not always the case. However, there are many things parents can do to make the process a positive one.

Child support payments highest in Massachusetts

People in Massachusetts have the highest child support payments in the country, a figure that reflects the cost of living but also the state's laws. For divorced parents, child support calculations can be an important factor when considering relocation. Under federal law, each state can set its own guidelines for calculating child support. Even neighboring states can have substantially different support guidelines, with average payments differing by over $600 between Massachusetts and Vermont.
