The amount of child support a non-custodial parent must pay is determined by the Michigan child support guidelines. At Golden & Jernigan, we have literally handled hundreds of cases involving the determination of child support.
In a child support case, it is critical to determine the true incomes of both you and your spouse. This can be a difficult task if you or your spouse is self-employed, a small business owner, or, in extreme cases, intentionally unemployed or underemployed.
How is Child Support Determined?
The Amount of Child Support is Determined By:
- The Income of the Noncustodial Parent
- The Income of the Custodial Parent
- Number of Children
- Number of Overnights of Each Party
- Healthcare and Daycare Necessary to Raise the Child
