Child Support

Child Support Attorney Ypsilanti MI – Child Support Lawyer Ypsilanti MI

There is a child support formula in Michigan that resolves the vast majority of cases. However, the formula is far from perfect and can be altered in certain circumstances. Child support is paid until the child reaches age 18 or graduates from high school but not beyond 19 years and six months of age, whichever occurs later and is usually withheld from the payer’s employer. It may be altered to reflect current income at any time upon motion of a party even after divorce and final orders in custody, support and paternity cases. Greater income also can be imputed to a party that chooses to work below their potential or voluntarily reduces income to try and avoid child support. If someone fails to pay support, that person could be jailed for contempt of court. A party cannot withhold parenting time if a parent is not paying support. The proper recourse is to contact an attorney and/or the FOC for enforcement.
