Franklin Child Support Lawyers

“I was recommended to the law office of Attorney Yellin & Hyman through a friend of my brother’s. I was very relieved when meeting with Attorney Yellin and found him to be very knowledgeable in handling a difficult and complicated divorce. I also had the pleasure of meeting with his associate, Attorney Rick Hyman, and found him to be as equally pleasant and knowledgeable. Now my children and I can finally move forward and I would definitely recommend Attorney Yellin and Attorney Hyman to anyone.”J.C., Blackstone

Massachusetts Child Support Dispute Attorney Serving Milford and Other Areas

The cost of raising a child can be expensive. Because of this, child support needs to be calculated fairly. With so much at stake, you need a Boston child support lawyer to find a resolution. At the Franklin and Hyde Park law firm of Yellin & Hyman, P.C., we protect the rights of our clients paying or receiving child support.

Getting to the Facts of Child Support

Child support is determined by calculating both spouses' incomes and then applying a formula based on the guidelines set forth in Massachusetts law (known as the "Child Support Guidelines"). The process itself can be abused if either party is dishonest in providing information regarding income, expenses and/or assets. The final number needs to be based on accurate information related to what each parent earns. Our job is to determine and properly analyze all sources of parental income.

At Yellin & Hyman, P.C., our Boston child support attorneys get to the facts. When needed, we enlist the help of forensic accountants and other financial professionals.

We can also help with circumstances where a child requires special medical care or has special needs. In such instances, arrangements may need to be made for care of the child even after the age of 18. Parents may also want to plan for college tuition and expenses.

We also assist in situations where paternity needs to be established. In Massachusetts, a mother may bring a paternity hearing in order to establish the father of the child. Once paternity is established, child support can be determined and ordered. Mothers can sometimes then collect on past-due payments and pregnancy expenses.

For help with a child support matter, contact a Boston child support attorney today. We offer two convenient area locations (Franklin and Hyde Park) and can be reached via phone by calling 508-528-8885 or 617-361-5310 or via e-mail.

After a Child Support Order

If there is a substantial change in circumstances, our child support attorneys can seek a modification for you. If you are not receiving child support payments in full or on time, we can help you get an order for any payments in arrears and for child support payments by wage assignments. Failure to meet child support obligations can result in wage garnishments, drivers or business license suspensions and even jail time.
