If your spouse makes X per year and you are going through a divorce in Massachusetts make sure you discuss this concern with your lawyer because no matter who you hire, the math stays the same, dividing one income is still dividing one income. A strong divorce attorney will persuade the court that you are entitled to more than one half that way you can live the lifestyle you were accustomed to during the marriage.
The court is going to try and be fair. However if your divorce attorney does not argue that you should not pay more than one half then you may have to. The child support guidelines are what they are, but a strong divorce attorney can protect you from paying more than you have to. Your attorney’s job is to protect you, ethically and aggressively.
