How Child Support Is Calculated in Michigan

The state of Michigan uses a child support calculator to determine how much child support will be paid to the custodial parent.

This calculator takes a variety of factors into account, including but not limited to:

  • The income of both parents
  • The support provided by the non-paying parent
  • The number of nights the child spends with each parent
  • The number of minor children involved in the case
  • If the paying parent has other child support obligations
  • Whether or not either spouse pays/receives alimony

Many everyday expenses are not taken into account when factoring child support payments. These include rent/mortgage payments, car payments, contributions to retirement accounts, and other common day-to-day expenses.

Once ordered by the court, child support payments are mandatory until the child has completed high school. They do not necessarily end once the child reaches the age of 18. Failure to make child support payments can result in serious consequences. If you need help with any aspect of child support, including making modifications to a court order or obtaining court-ordered child support payments, Grewal Law PLLC can help.

Child Support Concerns for LGBTQ Parents

The issues of child custody and support can be slightly more complicated for LGBTQ parents. In certain cases, for example, a second parent may have no legal rights regarding a child if he or she did not formally adopt the child. This is particularly true if the child is biologically related to the other parent. However, Michigan’s Equitable Parent Doctrine allows an individual to have parenting rights even if he or she is not the biological parent if a parenting relationship has been established. This typically extends to child support as well.
