Divorce and separation are challenging for every member of the family. Even amicable separations can become complicated when the subject of child support is introduced. However, children have a right to both financial and emotional support from both parents, and a Child Support Agreement is an equitable means to achieve the support your child’s needs.
At Michigan Premier Law, P.C., we understand that raising a child can be expensive. In Michigan, children living with the custodial parent are entitled to child support until the age of 19 years and 6 months.
Depending on when the divorce is finalized, this can add up to thousands of dollars needed to support your child. Child support provides the custodial parent with a regular stream of revenue to help alleviate the financial burden of raising a child.
While many parents can come to an agreement outside of court, the final decision is made by a judge who may deem the agreement unfair or inappropriate for either of the parties involved.
A law firm specializing in family law can help you navigate the complexities of divorce law and child support in Michigan. Some of the factors that impact a child support agreement include:
The legal system in Michigan uses a complicated, but effective, formula for determining a fair and equitable child support payment. However, in some cases a judge may see fit to override the calculations made using the formula. In these situations, it is important to have an experienced family law attorney on your side to fight for the rights of your child.
