Michigan Support

Michigan support regarding divorce can be looked at two different ways.

1. Spousal Maintenance Support, also known as Alimony

2. Child support

When referring to spousal maintenance or alimony, Michigan support can be either temporary or lasting.

As for payment, it can also be done as a single lump sum, asset division, or monthly payments.

Either way, there are several ways to diminish your Michigan support responsibility.

To take advantage of the system, you need to understand how the system really works in Florida.

Alimony in Michigan can be set at the discretion of your county judge in Family court if you and your ex can’t reach an agreement.

When it comes to determining alimony, disposable income is a key aspect. Disposable income is classified as your total income less taxes and required living expenses.

The income left once taxes and living expenses get paid is called your "disposable income".

This variance between yours and her disposable income establishes whether or you pay alimony and the amount.

Essentially the bigger the disposable income gap, the more you’ll pay, so you want to do whatever you can to reduce or even eliminate this difference.

There are right and wrong ways to accomplish this. It’s important that understand how the system works and use a proven strategy that is guaranteed to get you the results you want.

Support when considering child support is a distinctive topic because different from alimony, child support is not up to the will of a judge, but calculated using guideline formulas.

Little is subject to investigation, and that means your disposable income is not a factor in the ultimate decision.

Child support is determined through guideline formulas based your income, her income, the number of children you have, and the amount of time you spend with your kids each month.

Factors excluded from calculating child support in Michigan are your expenses, her expenses, and the children's principal costs.

It should be noted however that additional expenses such as day care and medical expenses are often added to the guideline support.

As an case in point, if your child needs medical treatment not covered by medical insurance, like braces, this expense is added to your monthly support payments.

You’ll likely be on the hook for approximately half of these “additional” expenses too.

Where parents consent to a child support amount without court input, the judge normally agrees to this agreed to sum.

Many times parents reach arrangements with no court participation. If, on the other hand, you and your ex don’t agree on child support, a judge will determine your child support payment using the Michigan child support guidelines.

In order to eliminate your Michigan Support anxiety around alimony or child support, you need strategies that will get the results you want.

You should do everything possible to minimize the support you’ll have to pay your wife and there are proven strategies to help you accomplish this.
