What is Child Support?
A child support order provides your children necessary financial support during and after a divorce. With ample experience and an in-depth knowledge of Michigan state laws, Toburen Law guides you through the support order process to ensure your children are protected for their futures.
How is a Child Support Payment Amount Determined?
Depending on the unique circumstances you live in and the unique circumstances of your divorce, child support payments can vary widely. Typically when determining a child support payment, the court will consider the following factors:
- The child's standard of living prior to the parents' divorce
- The custodial parent's income and resources
- The non-custodial parent's financial capacity
- Any specific or unique needs the child may have
What Happens if My Spouse Won't Pay Child Support?
If your spouse refuses to pay child support, you should take immediate legal action. Federal law requires all states to have governmental processes in place to help you collect the delinquent payments. Toburen Law can help you navigate these processes to ensure your child is receiving the support he or she deserves.
