Re: child support

Under Massachusetts law, the Court can still order you to pay for your son's support, maintenance, and education, so long as his principal residence is with the other parent and he is engaged in education substantially full-time. An attempt to modify at this time would likely be rejected by the Probate and Family Court, so long as he is clearly taaking steps to return to school.

: child support

You are paying support to the mother, not the child. Unless he is attending school full-time, you are not required to pay support.
