Kalamazoo Child Support Attorneys

Western Michigan Child Support Payment Lawyers

In Michigan, the amount of child support you are entitled to receive or are obligated to pay is determined by a state formula. However, a lawyer's assistance may be needed to ensure a fair outcome. At the law firm of Peter A. D' Angelo, PLC, we represent mothers and fathers in child custody and support cases in Portage, Kalamazoo, Battle Creek and other communities throughout Western Michigan.

Child support issues may arise as part of a divorce, custody case or if the state seeks support from the noncustodial parent. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Michigan Child Support Guidelines

In Michigan, a parent's child support obligation is determined by a formula. There are a number of factors that go into this formula:

  • Your child custody and visitation arrangement
  • Both the earning capacity and actual income or earning capacity of each parent
  • The number of children involved

Unfortunately, the state guidelines can be complicated. An experienced lawyer can help you navigate the process.

In certain circumstances, child support can be modified after a support order has been entered — for example, if there is a change in your financial circumstances that would significantly change the amount of child support you are obligated to pay or entitled to receive. A modification can occur if your financial circumstances change significantly or if you suffer from a loss of employment. Remember, if you are obligated to pay child support and suffer the loss of a job, you should ascertain if a child support modification is appropriate as soon as possible.
