Child Support Payments In Michigan
Child support payments in Michigan are determined by the Michigan child 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.
