A child has an intrinsic right to the support of his or her natural or adoptive parents. The Michigan Child Support Formula lays out a consistent formula Michigan courts are required to use to calculate child support. Factors that affect child support will include the income of each parent, parenting time, childcare costs, extraordinary needs of a child, health care premiums and tax exemptions.
We are here to support both mothers and fathers with child support concerns. We understand the stress parents experience about being able to provide for their children with one less household income. We are equally committed to protecting clients from paying child support to financially independent ex-spouses. No matter what side of the case you are on, we are ready to assist.
Child custody and support arrangements are not written in stone. When one parent loses his or her job or experience another significant financial change, the order can be modified.
