Custody and Child Support

The laws as they relate to child custody, parenting time and child support payment can be confusing. It’s helpful to have someone on your side who can speak for you and support you. As a parent, Kyrsten knows how important your children are to you. Protecting your rights and doing what’s best for the child are her top priority.

If you have custody of your children, you may be entitled to receive child support. Just getting child support often isn’t enough, though. Kyrsten will work to make sure you are awarded the appropriate amount of child support based on the Michigan Child Support Guidelines.

Kyrsten is also happy to work with you if you are not the primary custodian of the children. For example, if you are the non-custodial parent and you are paying child support, she will work to make sure that the dollar amount awarded is fair and in compliance with the law.
