What are some consequences if I don't pay child support?

If one has been ordered to pay child support in the state of Michigan then, the Michigan Friend of Court office is tasked with issuing an income withholding notice to all known sources of income. Sources of income include one's paycheck, Social Security checks, any unemployment benefits and workers' compensation benefits. Thus, if one is employed then child support will be withheld from one's paycheck. This is one way of ensuring that child support payments are made in a timely manner.

There are an estimated 15,000 same-sex couples who reside in Michigan.
