Michigan Child Support Lawyer With More Than 25 Years Of Experience
The issue of whether child support will be granted and how much support a party has to pay can be a significant concern when filing for divorce. In Michigan, child support is calculated using the Michigan Child Support formula, which is based upon the income of both parties, the number of children, and who has custody. Child support orders are enforced under the Support and Parenting Time Enforcement Act (SPTEA).

Child Support Guidance For Fathers And Mothers
Even though child support is based on guidelines, multiple issues can influence or change the amount a party has to pay. These include:
- The amount of parenting time the non-custodial parent has
- Changes in income or employment
- Reduction in parenting time
- Paternity issues
Often, in child support cases, a challenge arises in the determination of income, especially if one of the parties is self-employed. Courts will look at the spending habits and bank records of the self-employed person in an effort to determine their true income. I can help you fight for the amount of child support you need by making sure that all pertinent financial records are obtained.
If you are from out of state and seeking enforcement of a child support order in Michigan through the Uniform Child Support Enforcement Act, I can help. I can also assist you if you are seeking a modification of a current child support order due to a change in employment, income or custody agreement.
