Custody of the Children in Michigan

In Michigan, one potential child custody arrangement that the courts recognize is joint custody. Joint custody is not usually granted at a 50-50 arrangement. It does, however, permit both parents to participate in the decision-making process regarding a child’s overall well-being.

In a contested child custody matter, the court must keep the wishes of the child, as well as the best interests of the child and all other parties, in mind. The court will also consider the child’s adjustment to his or her household, school, friends, community, siblings and other elements when making choices regarding child custody situations.

Michigan Child Support Guidelines

The State of Michigan has child support guidelines which apply in nearly every situation. When calculating child support in Michigan, both parties' gross income and child related expenses are taken into consideration. Support continues until the child reaches 18, but may be extended until the child completes secondary school.

Divorce Mediation

When there are contested issues, and the parties wish to file an uncontested divorce, the parties may seek mediation. A judge may also refer certain matters to arbitration with a written stipulation that disputed problems are resolved before the divorce is finalized.
