Statewide Child Support Program – Establishment of Child Support Orders - 431-0701-15

Description of Agency

The Statewide Child Support Program was developed to improve self-sufficiency of families by requiring noncustodial parents to fulfill their continuing obligation to support their children and to collect child support to offset State and federal public assistance program costs. In Michigan, the Program operates through the cooperative efforts of three agencies: the Office of Child Support, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services; county prosecuting attorney offices; and Friend of the Court offices. The Office of Child Support is responsible for administering the Program on a Statewide basis.
