Ok, so just for the hell of it I'm playing around with the child support calculator (michigan) at http://www.alllaw.com/calculators/childsupport/michigan/

FOR TWO MUTUAL CHILDREN

I put in that he has zero income, because he doesnt have any income. duh. 

that he pays (is prdered to pay) $600 a month is child support for his other two kids. ($300 a month each)

no insurance, no daycare. 

i put that i make 1200 a month. really its more like 1500

i pay 0 child support

i pay 0 insurance

and $440 a month in childcare. 


it says his child support would be $-354

NEGATIVE??? WTH?? 

if this were legit, would i have to pay him child support? hes 100% non custodial..

I personally know someone whose spouse pays $400 a month for kids that he has full custody of...bm sees them maybe twice a year for a few days if that.

The system sucks, imo.

In the state of MI, it's geared towards leveling the playing field in both homes.  One thing that must not have gone into the calculator was the # of overnights which plays in to the MI calcs.  (we're from MI)

I think you must have done something wrong because even with two kids, BM not working and DH making significantly more than you do, and being in a 40/60 right now, we are only paying 800/mo.  

If your ex doesn't have the kids AT ALL then there would be no support paid.  Period.

That is utter and complete BS. That is not leveling the playing field, that is paying someone that doesn't have the children, doesn't provide for them, money for absofuckinglutely nothing.

its the system

My stepkids BM and SF have custody of his 2 kids and he's paying $1200monthly for them....even though he's got fully custody.

The good news is-they get that money back. Every month.

But for some reason they gotta pay it out-it goes thru the system and in 2weeks it comes right back to them.
