CHILD SUPPORT MODIFICATION
The Friend of the Court is required by Michigan law to review child support under any of
the following conditions:
1. Not less than once every three years if the child(ren) are receiving public
2. When ordered by the Court to conduct a review.
3. Not less than once every three years upon written request of a parent.
State and Federal laws require that a child support guideline be used by the Court when
setting child support obligations. The Michigan Child Support Formula considers the
income of the payer and custodial parent. The Formula and the computer program are
available at the Michigan Supreme Court State Court Administrative website.
