Changes in Child Support Plan
Under Michigan law, it is possible to discharge child support arrearages and come up with a reasonable payment plan that will pay back a percentage of the arrearages owed.
Whether you owe child support arrearages to the state or to your ex, the court must approve a proposed plan to change child support payments. A motion must be filed within the court that the child support is owed, and based on a number of different factors, they can decide whether or not changes should be made to the existing child support payments plan.
