Hi I'm a dad in MA and because of the new guidelines, my child support payment has increased dramatically. My son's mom is now remarried, lives in Winchester, MA. one of the richest towns in Mass. and her whole family currently drives around in Cadillacs. I am living in an apartment in my parents' home, with a monthly child support payment, equivalent to a mortgage payment, therefore, I cannot afford my own apartment, condo, or home. My son comes to my parents' house without new clothes, shoes, or anything else. I do not see any evidence of the payment toward my son. One thing that Massachusetts law makers refuse to see is how these payments are being put to use and refuse to see how unfair a situation this creates. It's infuriating to me that her quality of life has increased and mine has decreased even though I see my son regularly and provide him with what he needs when I do, yet I do not see evidence of the payment being put towards my sons necessities. Unfortunately, fathers are at the states' mercy and at this point, I do not know who to turn to for fairness.
