Legal separation, divorce, and child support arrangements pose challenges for every member of the family. It costs a considerable amount of money to support a child, and family law matters are complex.
Divorce is one of the most trying legal processes to navigate, and it can be difficult to simultaneously look after the well-being of both your financial health and your children. Fortunately, Michigan Premier Law, P.C. provides complete legal services to families in Troy, Michigan, who need help finding an equitable child support arrangement.
Michigan law dictates that child support continues until a child reaches the age of 18 and 9 months, but some factors can adjust or lengthen the expected child support timeline. For instance, disability and educational needs can adjust that timeline.
Michigan law also sets forth a legal formula to determine child support amounts, depending on the earnings of each parent and who has primary physical custody. This legal formula can be dismissed by a judge if the arrangement is not fair for the parents and children.
These legal parameters are set up in order to serve families and children alike. However, due to the detail of the law and the possibility of other complicating factors, you want the skill of the Michigan Premier Law, P.C. legal team to help guide you through the decision-making process with efficiency.
For instance, each parent’s regular income, medical costs, which parent provides health insurance, custodial arrangements, and the number of children to be supported can all change the outcome of child support court rulings.
If you already have a child support order in place and you have not received payments from the other parent, you are entitled to recoup that money. It is not only in the interests of your children, but legally, the other parent is required to follow this child support order. We can help you recoup these missing payments and adjust an existing child support order if needed.
Your children’s lives do not stop because you are in divorce court. It’s imperative that you find a quick and decisive child support arrangement so that your children’s health and educational needs continue to be taken care of. Call us today for a free consultation at (248) 688-0045.
