Child support is calculated using the Michigan Child Support Formula. The formula considers multiple factors including, but not limited to, both parent’s income, the number of overnights each parent has, cost of health insurance premiums paid on behalf of the child(ren), and cost of child care paid by each parent. These factors may result in one parent paying the other parent's child support.
The court may order child support for the time a child is regularly attending high school on a full-time basis with a reasonable expectation of completing sufficient credits to graduate from high school while residing on a full-time basis with the recipient of support or at an institution, but in no case after the child reaches 19 years and 6 months of age. A complaint or motion requesting support as provided in this section may be filed at any time before the child reaches 19 years and 6 months of age.
