Family Law — Child Support
Child Support Lawyer – Law Office of Erica M. Foster
At the Law Offices of Erica M. Foster, we provide child support legal services in Massachusetts. If you are a parent and divorce, the parent the child lives with often receives money (child support) from the parent no longer living with the child.
In family law child support is an ongoing, periodic payment made by a parent for the financial benefit of a child following the end of a marriage or other relationship. Child Support is paid directly by the non-custodial parent for the care and support of children of a relationship that has been terminated, or in some cases never existed.
Child Support Attorney You Can Trust
In Massachusetts a non-custodial parent, typically pays child support to the custodial parent. So, a mother may be required to pay support to a father just as a father might pay a mother. Where there is joint custody, the child is considered to have two custodial parents, and a custodial parent with a higher income may be required to pay the other custodial parent.
In family law, child support is often arranged as part of a divorce, marital separation, determination of parentage or may supplement alimony (spousal support) arrangements.
