How to co-parent effectively during the holidays and always:

As the winter holidays approach, many co-parents are addressing the issue of how to effectively share or divide special events with their children. For some parents, this is the first holiday season that this situation and other custody issues have come up.

What are the Major Changes to the 2017 Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines?

Every four years, the Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines are reviewed, updated and amended. On September 15, 2017, the new Child Support Guidelines will take effect. While many provisions of the current guidelines will remain the same, there are several major changes that may have a significant impact on parties who already have a support order. These include changes to the minimum presumptive order, the calculation of support for children between 18 and 23 years of age, the payment of child care and health insurance costs, the removal of a calculation for parenting plans that are not 50/50 or one-third/ two-thirds, and the addition of a maximum parental contribution to college expenses. 

When to Involve the Department of Children and Families

Child abuse or neglect are serious matters that need to be addressed immediately. Unfortunately, many parents fail to take appropriate steps towards ensuring that suspicions of child abuse or neglect are addressed, either due to fear that doing so will cause additional harm to the child or that it will place their own parenting into question.
