This Child Support Calculator uses the October 4, 2021 Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines, which are required for child support orders in MA as of October 4, 2021. For child support court orders between June 15, 2018 and October 3, 2021, use this 2018-2021 MA Child Support Calculator.
I mediate MA divorces in ALL Massachusetts counties and courts with live video conferencing on Zoom. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have about divorce mediation or uncontested divorce. You can try the most user-friendly MA alimony calculator here.
After calculating your child support, you can click the button “Save Results to Worksheet PDF” to save the results to a Child Support Guidelines Worksheet .pdf, or you can add the case name, docket number and other information to create a completely court-ready Child Support Guidelines Worksheet .pdf.
To calculate how much child support you should pay or receive, simply fill in the following information and click “Calculate”.
After you have calculated your results and downloaded a court-ready .pdf, you should check your final calculations against the state court’s calculating .pdf at: MA fillable .pdf 2021 child support calculator. You may find the state court form very difficult to fill out unless you you use my website first. If you use my website and download the results as a .pdf, it will give you a guide as to how to fill out the state’s confusing version of the form. The resulting two .pdf’s should be identical.
