Michigan Child Support Attorney

In divorce and paternity actions, as well as in post-judgment matters, disputes often arise over the amount of child support payable by one parent to the other. Michigan has adopted statutory guidelines for determining child support.  These guidelines require consideration of factors including the incomes of both parents, the number of children for which support is required, the cost of health insurance and day care paid by the parents, the number of overnights the children spend with each parent, and whether the parents  provide support for another child.

A comprehensive understanding of these factors is necessary to ensure that the amount of child support called for by the Michigan child support guidelines accurately reflects the true income and expenses of the parents.

Child Support

At the Law Office of Julian J. Poota, PLLC., we diligently work on behalf of our clients to obtain accurate information to substantiate income and expenses to ensure that the amount of child support is an accurate reflection of the incomes of the parties in an effort to protect the best interests of the children for whom the support is ordered. We will counsel you as to the factors that affect the amount of child support payable, and gather all the financial information necessary to ensure that a child support order is entered which properly applies the child support guidelines within the particular circumstances of your case.

A Michigan child support order is modifiable if there has been a "change in circumstances," such as an increase or decrease in the income of either parent, a change in the amount of time the child spends with one parent, or a change of in the amount of daycare expenses from when the initial support order was adopted by the court.
