Michigan divorce picture

“We realize how difficult divorce and child custody matters can be. At Femminineo Attorneys PLLC, we are committed to making this difficult process as easy to deal with as possible”

Lake Orion

Femminineo Attorneys PLLC has been serving the Lake Orion, Michigan, area for over 40 years, helping clients settle their divorce cases and any legal matters surrounding the dissolution of a marriage.

Our Michigan divorce attorneys regularly visit the courts of Oakland County, Michigan, to support our Lake Orion clients in matters of child support, spousal support, parenting time, and the like. Family matters that were previously routed through the circuit and probate courts in Oakland County, including divorce cases for residents of Lake Orion, Michigan, are now under the jurisdiction of the Family Division of the Circuit Court of Oakland County, Michigan.

Child support can be a charged topic in a Michigan divorce, and any divorced couple with children is well-acquainted with the facets of the law surrounding child support. There is one area that can cause some confusion, however and that is child support modification.

It’s important to know that child support modification cannot happen independently of the courtroom. The judge assigned to a divorce case when the papers are filed continues to have jurisdiction on all issues involving matters of child care, parenting time, and child support until the child in question graduates from high school or turns 19.5 years old. The judge is the party that will determine when and if an increase or decrease in child support can take place.

The Village of Lake Orion has three zip codes: 48359, 48360, 48361, and 48362. Nearby cities include Rochester Hills, Waterford, Orion Charter Township, and Oakland Charter Township.

Understanding Income Withholding and MiSDU in Michigan

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

In the state of Michigan, in a divorce case involving child support, it is required by law that an income withholding order go into effect and be entered into the final judgment of a divorce. The employer of the party who will be paying child support is ordered to deduct the determined amount from the party’s paycheck and send it to the Michigan State Disbursement Unit (MiSDU).

While it may sound like a hassle, MiSDU actually makes life easier for the divorcing parties. They disburse child support payments to the other party, they track payments that are in arrears, and so on. Watch this video featuring divorce lawyer Jacob Femminineo as he addresses common financial concerns that arise when it comes to child support, income withholding, and the duties of MiSDU.
