How Does Michigan Determine Child Support?
Child support is classified as reoccurring scheduled payments which are made to financially support the children of the marriage. Child support is calculated based on 2 factors: (1) the income of the parents, and (2) the number of overnights.
Typically, the payments are made by the parents that no longer have custodial
rights over the children or the parent with less overnights; the party
that is receiving payments is typically the custodial parent or exercising
majority of the parenting time.
Main Factors Courts Consider for Calculating Child Support:
- Income earned and capabilities of earned income of each parent during the marriage.
- Each parent's capabilities to pay for the child.
- The income and custodial capabilities of each parent.
- The current family structure and environment.
- The current age of the child.
- The current standard of living of the child.
- The needs of the child.
Family law courtrooms are specified and bound to being “court of equity.” This means that any Family law court is going to take into consideration all pertinent information and facts, regarding the current circumstances, and analyze the optimum fair outcome. Family Law Courts fundamentally are seeking out the best interests of the child and making their decisions with respect to that child.
