In May 2013, the Massachusetts Probate and Family Court expanded Standing Order 3-11, which streamlines the child support modification process in Massachusetts. As part of the project, three private attorneys were hired by the Probate and Family Court and DOR to serve as Project Coordinators to oversee the effectiveness of the program. Talia Simonds, Esq., of Amaral & Associates, P.C., which has offices in Winthrop and Boston, was one of those attorneys.

Through this Standing Order, parents can now complete more user-friendly forms to file for a child support modification with the Probate and Family Court, and also obtain a faster court date to obtain some relief.
