There are a lot of things about child custody matters that are difficult for parents to handle. The money side of it, particularly, is often a topic of contention, leaving parents -- whether custodial or not -- to feel somewhat lost and frustrated. When dealing with a child support dispute -- such as an enforcement issue or modification concern -- it is okay for parents in Massachusetts or elsewhere to seek help in order to resolve the matter a quickly and smoothly as possible.
There are at least two sides to every child support story -- the custodial parent's side and the non-custodial parent's side. Both want what is best for their children and for themselves. Unfortunately, there are times when one or both sides may not feel that their best interests are being considered.
