Child support is often one of the most contentious issues in a divorce. Even when parents are not fighting over support, they often have questions about how support is calculated, what income and assets can be included in the calculations, and whether they can change child support after a court order has been issued. They want to know how child custody affects support. They wonder whether support paid to the other parent might factor into child support considerations.

At the Law Offices of Michael A. Robbins in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, attorney Robbins is able to answer all questions related to child and spousal support. As a teacher, lecturer and author of numerous articles on family law, he is highly knowledgeable about the most recent changes in Michigan's spousal and child support laws.

Issues that arise in child support matters include:

  • The effect of both parents' incomes on child support payments
  • What income is included in the calculations
  • What are reasonable child care provisions
  • Which party pays for health insurance for the child
  • Whether there is any flexibility in the guidelines
  • What happens if child support payments are not made
  • Who is responsible for enforcement of child support orders
  • Whether child support awards can be changed
