Helping Families Navigate Matters of Child Support Kent, Kalamazoo and surrounding Counties

Parents going through a divorce or those who have recently separated frequently have questions about their child support responsibilities. The calculation of child support is primarily based on parental income, yet the custody and visitation schedule will also significantly impact the final amount. Additionally, various costs, such as those for daycare services and health insurance, are crucial factors in setting the correct level of support.

Although Michigan’s child support guidelines are generally strict, we can identify and potentially utilize certain exceptions that may apply to your situation. After assessing your specific circumstances, we can outline your options and strategize on how to achieve the best possible outcome. Our team is made up of experienced advocates who can leverage their familiarity with the state’s procedures to anticipate opposing arguments and prepare a strong case on your behalf.
