Assisting Michigan Families With Child Support Issues

Our attorneys work closely with our clients to help them correctly determine their obligation to provide support to their children, ensuring that families will have the financial resources they need following divorce. The amount of child support payments is calculated based on both parents’ net incomes and the number of children being supported, while also considering each parent’s amount of overnight parenting time with their children and whether either parent is required to support children from a previous relationship. 

In addition to these support obligations, parents may be obligated to contribute to children’s health care costs and employment-related child care expenses. Parents are required by Michigan law to support their children until they turn 18, or, if children are still attending high school, until they are 19 ½.
