MiChildSupport Calculator - This is Michigan's child support calculator. It is used to calculate child support using the Michigan Child Support Formula. Federal laws require the use of a statewide guideline (formula) for calculating child support amounts. State law requires the use of the Michigan Child Support Formula (MCSF) to calculate child support. The support calculation provided by this Calculator is not a support recommendation or a support order.
