Massachusetts Child Support Task Force Issues New Child Support Guidelines, Effective September 15, 2017

After a four year review conducted by the Child Support Guidelines Task Force, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Trial Court has promulgated new Child Support Guidelines that went into effect September 15, 2017.

In a statement issued by Trial Court Chief Justice Paula M. Carey, the new guidelines are “responsive to the feedback the Task Force received regarding the cost of health care and child care, as well as child support orders for children between the ages of 18 and 23, and post-secondary educational expenses.”

Further information and significant changes are outlined in a press release published on the Massachusetts Court System Website.
