Grand Rapids Child Custody Lawyer

photoGrand Rapids, Michigan, child custody attorney, Renee Wagenaar, founded WN Law PLLC to provide excellent family law representation to clients in and around the Central West Michigan region. WN Law vigorously advocates for parents seeking, modifying or challenging child support orders. The firm supports the unique needs of mothers and fathers who want to ensure that their children are protected and are provided for in the aftermath of a divorce.

Child Support Payments In Michigan

Child support payments in Michigan are determined by the Michigan support guidelines. In calculating child support, the formula considers many factors including medical support and day care costs. Many different factors can be important in determining the amount of child support a parent may pay or receive. The courts consider:

  • How much each parent makes
  • How many children are involved
  • How often each child spends the night
  • The cost of medical insurance
  • The cost of child care

These are some of the many different factors that the courts consider. It is important to note that a child support order is not permanent. When income, visitation or other obligations change, child support orders can be modified to reflect changing circumstances. You should always consult with a family attorney if you feel that an order needs to be modified.

Child Custody Mediation Attorney

During child custody mediations, it is important to determine the kinds of child custody arrangements the parents want to pursue. At WN Law, we help clients decide whether they are interested in any of the following:

  • Sole or joint physical custody
  • Sole or joint legal custody
  • Visitation hours and locations

In Michigan, divorcing parents are required to go through a court-sponsored mandatory mediation process so that an agreement can be reached that reflects the best interests of the child. Family lawyer Renee Wagenaar assists Central West Michigan residents by providing answers to child custody disputes and passionately defending the interests of parents who are concerned about holding on to their children.
