What factors are considered when setting child support

Filing for divorce can be a complicated process, especially when there are children involved. Matters of determining child custody and setting child support are necessary to include in the final divorce settlement. Child support is designed to minimize the effect children experience when moving from a traditional family situation to a single-parent household. In Michigan, and in many other states throughout the nation, the income shares model is used to determine how much child support will be ordered. Under this model, it is believed that children should receive the same amount of financial support that they would have been exposed to had their parents remained married. 

Will my child support spending be monitored?

You may have questions about child support during your divorce. Perhaps your friends, associates and family members have told you that the court will keep tabs on how you spend the money. Your ex may have said you are supposed to provide him or her with receipts or may even have a list of expenditures he or she deems acceptable to spend child support on. Understandably, you are probably feeling some anxiety if you are hearing these claims.

What are the common reasons to contest a will?

Like many other Michigan residents, you may think that a will is set in stone and that once it goes through the probate system, there is nothing you can do to challenge its terms. In many cases, you would be correct. However, in some instances you may be able to successfully contest a will.
