After going through a Child Custody issue one parent is may to end up with primary custody of a child or children. In normal circumstances, bother parents will be responsible for the support of the child and one parent will be paying child support to help pay for the needs and education of the child. The recipient of child support is usually not required to account for the child support he or she receives.
Things such as voluntary gifts, clothes or transportation are not considered as child support.
When calculating (or recalculating) child support, Michigan is required to consider the Michigan Child Support Formula. The manual can be found here.
