Trial Court Child Support Guidelines Task Force seeking public's comments and suggestions
The Massachusetts Trial Court is seeking public comment and
suggestions concerning the Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines.
Written comments may be submitted to the Child Support Guidelines
Task Force at: The Administrative Office of the Trial Court; Suite
540, Two Center Plaza; Boston, MA 02108 or [e-mail childsupport]
The task force will also hold five public forums where written
statements may be delivered and brief oral statements may be made.
Oral testimony is not necessary because oral and written comments
will be considered equally. The public forums will be held during
the month of September 2012 in locations across the state. Specific
dates and locations will be announced when determined.
The deadline for submission of all comments is Sept. 30, 2012. If
specific changes to the guidelines are suggested, specific sections
to be changed should be referenced, new language proposed, and
reasons for the proposed change included.
