When two Michigan parents go through a divorce, their main priority is the protection and well-being of their children. Most parents understand that the process of divorce can be hardest on the children, and as a result, they strive to provide them with a reasonable custody order that allows them to have access to both parents. It's not always as easy to come to an agreement on the issue of child support.

Whether you believe you should receive these types of payments or you want to understand what you can expect regarding your own financial obligations after divorce, you may want to learn more about how your income can impact support.
