There are several National and International laws that regulate child custody and support across State lines.

STATE TAXES – DOES MASSACHUSETTS FOLLOW YOU TO FLORIDA?

One of the great benefits of living in Florida is that there is no State income taxation. Sometimes, however, the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) takes the position that a Florida resident who receives revenue derived from a Massachusetts business entity must continue to pay Massachusetts State income taxes.
