Michigan Child Support

Michigan child support is calculated based upon a formula. The amount of child support derived from the formula is presumed to be correct unless it is shown to be unjust or inappropriate.  A Michigan child support Order may include provisions for medical care, child care, and educational expenses of the child. A Michigan  Divorce Judgment must include a provision that requires one or both of the parents to provide health care coverage, if such coverage is available at a reasonable cost as a benefit of employment. All payments of child support shall be ordered to be make through the Michigan Friend of the Court Bureau.
