Child Support Calculator
Above is our child support calculator, a resource you can use to estimate the amount of child support you or your child’s other parent may be required to pay. If you or your child’s other parent has recently experienced a change in circumstances, you can also use this tool to estimate how much support you will owe or receive after a child support modification.
How the Child Support Calculator Works
This calculator uses the information you provide to calculate child support obligations under Massachusetts law. The state of Massachusetts calculates child support obligations based on:
- The income of each parent.
- The amount each parent pays for health insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance and child care.
- The number of children involved.
To begin, you will input information about your income and the income of the other parent into the appropriate boxes in Section 1. You will also include the amounts you and the other parent pay toward certain expenses for your children. At the end of Section 1, the calculator will determine your combined available income. In Section 2, simply input the number of children covered by the order. The calculator will use this information, along with the calculations from Section 1, to determine how much child support the payor will owe each week.
