How Is the Amount of Child Support Determined? (continued)

Prescription form

Medical Support

Michigan law requires one or both parents to obtain or maintain health care coverage if it is available to them at a reasonable cost. Each parent must pay for a percentage of the child's medical expenses, based on income. Each parent's share cannot be less than 10% or more than 90%.

Child Care Obligations

The court will determine each parent's share for work-related child care expenses, based on both parents' incomes, but each parent's share cannot be less than 10% or more than 90%.
