Parents dealing with child support matters in a divorce or domestic partnership dissolution come to the Methuen, Massachusetts, Law Office of Carol Weinstein Boileau with different concerns:
- How can I give my children the lifestyle they are used to with just one income?
- How can I support myself and afford a high child support payment?
- How can I prevent my child’s parent from seeking custody just to avoid paying support?
Much of what parents who come into our law office have heard is based on other people’s situations, which cannot necessarily be generalized to their own. Parents must gain an understanding of their rights and responsibilities regarding child support guidelines, including the latest guidelines that came into effect on August 1, 2013.
At our law firm, child support attorney Carol Weinstein Boileau has a keen understanding of child support, child custody, spousal support, division of property, support modifications and enforcement based on more than 40 years’ experience as a family law attorney in Middlesex and Essex counties. She brings a deep knowledge of family law, support and financial matters and skilled advocacy to each individual case. Her goal is to seek a solution that works both for you and for your involved child, while minimizing the stresses that may be involved.
What the New Child Support Guidelines Address
The courts are consistently focused on the best interest of the child. The new guidelines further address issues such as economic lifestyle disparity between two homes in which there is shared physical custody, or when one child lives with one parent and a second child lives with the other parent and there is income disparity.
