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.
