Toughness and Support When You Need It Most

How is child support calculated?

Michigan child support is calculated according to a formula that takes into account both parents' income, how much time the child spends with each, and how much each parent pays for child care and health insurance. In theory, each parent pays child support to the other for the time that the child is with the other parent. In practice, the two amounts are offset against each other, with the parent who owes more paying the other parent the difference.
