The Massachusetts Child Support Guidelines have just been updated for 2017 and these new guidelines will go into effect on September 15, 2017. Along with the updated guidelines will be a new Child Support Guidelines Worksheet as well as a few other revised forms.

We’re already working on the updated worksheet and other forms, and the new forms will be available in TurboLaw before the effective date of September 15.

We’re also planning on releasing a preview version of the Child Support Guidelines Worksheet in TurboLaw soon – this preview version will be alongside the current version. (The preview version will have a “9-17” revision date to distinguish it from the current 8-13 revision.)

One the preview version is released, TurboLaw will pick up the preview version of the form automatically when you open the program (so long as you have a current TurboLaw subscription and haven’t turned automatic updates off).

We’ll post an update here once the preview version is released, and again when the final version is added to the program closer to the September 15th effective date.

As always if you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to let us know – you can email or call us at (800) 518-8726.
