How Is Child Support in Michigan Calculated?
Michigan child support law is very clear and is based on a strict formula. This formula is also referred to as "the Michigan child support guidelines". This formula can be found in the Michigan Child Support Formula Manual.
What Is the Michigan Child Support Formula Manual?
The Michigan Child Support Formula Manual can be downloaded from the Michigan State Court Administrative Office’s web site.
Most child support orders provide that support be paid through the Michigan State Disbursement Unit. This Unit is responsible for child support enforcement. However, if the parties agree to direct payment, they may be permitted to opt out of Friend of the Court entirely.
