In the news recently is an article that Rob Kardashian agreed to pay $20,000 per month in child support, ending a heavily contested battle with ex-fiancee Blac Chyna.
We frequently hear from clients that a friend of theirs is receiving a substantial amount of support, or not enough support, and they want to know what they are entitled to.
Child support will vary for everyone. Support is based upon the amount of overnights each parent has with the child, the income of both parents, child care payments, and health insurance payments. All of the aforementioned information is put into the Michigan Child Support Formula, and the amount of support is generated. Unless there is a very good reason to do so, the parties cannot deviate from the formula. Thus, you most likely will not receive $20,000 per month in support, but based upon the circumstances, you will receive the amount that the court finds appropriate based upon the aforementioned information.
