Support Review Process

Under Obligation Requirement

The Friend of the Court (FOC) is able to conduct a support review free of charge once every 36 months. A support review is a review of the child support obligation, child care obligation, and medical care obligation using the Michigan Child Support Formula. A support review can be conducted for the following circumstances;

  • A written request is submitted to the FOC for a review, not more often than once every 36 months from the date of the last order or the last review, unless there is verification of a significant change of circumstance, for example, a loss of employment or a change in custody.
  • An order is entered from the court for a support review.
  • Every 36 months if the recipient of support receives public assistance.
  • Upon FOC staff initiative if certain case conditions exist.
