Orders for child support typically follow a divorce proceeding, or a new determination of paternity, and there are several factors that come into play in family court, which your Oakland County child support lawyer can help you navigate. The income level and health status of both parents, especially the non-custodial parent, are weighed, in the context of the child custody arrangement, to determine the eligibility for child support payments. According to law, minor children are entitled to financial support from both parents, regardless of the living situation or parental relationship.
