How can my child support order be modified?

Getting divorced is often a painful process. From the emotional fallout of the dissolution of your primary relationship to the financial impact of splitting your assets, much of what happens isn't pleasant. Many times, it can feel like child support amounts are not fair. It can be tempting, particularly in cases where you don't agree with the custody or visitation agreements, to make partial payments or withhold child support. If you don't agree with your child support amount, you should retain the services of an experienced divorce and family law attorney as soon as possible.

Child support for high-earners is complicated in Michigan

Child support is a reasonable thing to expect from any parent. But in some circumstances, the way in which child support is calculated can mean that a father or mother is required to supply a child (and the child's primary custodian) with far more than is needed to provide for the needs of the child.

Withholding child support over missed visitation: A big mistake

No one wants to get divorced, but well over half the adult marriages and those involved in them will experience this painful legal process at some point in their lives. Often, when divorce begins, both parties can become contentious, angry, and even bitter. This can lead to inappropriate behavior, fighting, and a drawn-out divorce process.

How will your child custody order affect your child support?

When one parent has sole physical or residential custody of a child, the other parent is typically required to pay child support to the custodial parent. This is because, in Michigan, all parents are required to support their children, and custodial parents meet this obligation by having custody.
