I was under the impression that the new ma. child support guidelines would benefit the parent who has sole physical custody, especially if there are a number of kids and the parent can not work because the children are young and have different medical and educational issues. But someone recently said that the new guidelines would most likely lower an existing child support order if it was above guidelines, even if there are circumstances that require it to be. I understand there are guidelines to modify and that you need a change in circumstances, but what if the parent receiving the support wants to modify the current order, and has the circumstances, and one of them is the father is going to got a raise, will that matter or are the guidelines lower now?
