Children are entitled to support from their natural parents or adoptive parents. Generally, the issue of the amount of child support is referred to the Friend of the Court. The Michigan Friend of the Court Act requires the Friend of the Court in MI to investigate all relevant facts to make a written report and recommendation to the parties, their attorney's and to the circuit court judge, when there are disputes in custody, parenting time, and support. The Court then receives the recommendation from the Friend of the Court. The Michigan Circuit Court judge is not bound by the findings or recommendations of the Friend of the Court and may make his or her (the judge) ruling independent of that recommendation, but most often the recommendation is followed. 

In Michigan, the amount of child support awarded is governed by a specific formula. This formula requires that a shared economic formula should be used to calculate the amount to be paid.  Although sometime there are deviations from the formula, it is basically based upon a number of enumerated factors, including:

1- The combined gross incomes of the parents, with adjustments for prior support and support of subsequent familie

2- The number of children in each parent's home

3- Health care, childcare, and other expenses

4- Parenting time schedule (allocation) 
5- Special needs of children may be considered
