Child Support Is the Right of the Child

Child support in Michigan is subject to a complex formula that includes the following factors:

  • Each parent’s income and tax responsibility
  • The number of children involved
  • The custody arrangements
  • Health insurance
  • Child care costs

In general, the parent with physical custody pays less child support. The number of overnight visits the child spends with the noncustodial parent will also be considered.

With our experience in financial issues, we can assist in determining what the income of each parent really is, which can be a challenge if one parent is self-employed. We also assist people with enforcement of child support payments. If your life or financial situation changes substantially, we can advise you if modification is possible and help you file a petition it is.
