What is Child Support?

Child support is considered a court-ordered financial obligation that one parent pays to the other for the well-being and upbringing of their child. In Michigan, child support is determined based on a formula that considers factors such as each parent's income, the number of children involved, and specific expenses related to the child's health care and education. At Haque Legal, we are well-versed in the nuances of Michigan's child support laws and can guide you through the process of determining a fair and equitable support arrangement.

How is Child Support Determined?

Child support is determined based on the parent's combined net disposable income, which is the amount of income left over after taxes and other deductions. The amount of child support is calculated based on a percentage of net disposable income. Parents who are paying child support have the right to request a review of the child support order if their income changes significantly. Parents who are receiving child support have the right to request a review of the payer's income increases.

What Age Do You Stop Paying Child Support?

In Michigan, child support typically continues until the child turns 18. However, if the child is still attending high school on a full-time basis, child support may continue until the child graduates or turns 19, whichever comes first. Additionally, child support may be extended beyond these ages for children with special needs.

Our experienced Michigan child support attorneys at Haque Legal can provide clarity on the specific circumstances of your case and guide you through the process of modifying or terminating child support obligations as your child's needs evolve.

How is Child Support Calculated in Michigan?

Michigan courts use the St. Joseph formula to calculate child support. This formula takes into account both parents' net disposable income and the number of children they share. This formula is based on the idea that both parents should provide financial support for their child.

The St. Joseph Formula for Calculating Child Support

  • Basic child support is calculated by determining the cost of raising a child and dividing that cost in half.
  • Parental contribution is calculated by determining each parent's income and dividing that income in half.
  • Child support is calculated by subtracting the basic child support amount from the parental contribution.

The resulting amount is the minimum amount of child support the payer must pay.
