Laws exist to make sure that all parents meet their children’s financial needs no matter how much time they live in their home. Even though the punishment for failing to pay child support seems clear cut, counsel from an experienced Michigan family lawyer might be necessary to establish, enforce and modify these arrangements fairly. At Dawson Family Law, PLLC in Sterling Heights, I have advised Michigan as well as other States parents on these matters for decades. Whether you are the parent seeking child support or the one required to pay it, I’ll safeguard your rights and work diligently so your son or daughter is supported properly.
Most child support rates in Michigan are based on a formula that takes into account how many nights a child spends in each parent’s home and each parent’s income. My firm advises clients on each aspect of child support law, including:
Whether your child support issue arises from a divorce, a paternity ruling, or the end of a nonmarital relationship, my firm will deliver strong advice and advocacy, starting with a free initial consultation.
Failing to make required child support payments can have serious consequences for everyone involved. Accordingly, nonpaying parents risk wage garnishment, driver’s license suspension, the revocation of professional credentials, and contempt charges. If you haven’t received the full payment as mandated by your child support order, waiting to take action could harm your child. My firm seeks to resolve the situation as quickly as possible through effective communication and court proceedings, when necessary.
