Child support is determined based on the parents' 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, and parents are required to maintain life insurance for their child until they reach the age of 18. 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 if the payer's income increases.

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.
