He actually was not made to pay for extracurricular activities. The court determined that those are included expenses for raising a child and that the child support formula covers all costs as if they were an intact family.
Yes he will pay 63% of the current daycare which is fine. Yes he has them every weekend so he takes them to there practices and games. how do you go about making sure they both agree on the activities?
I am in Michigan and my fiance filed to have his child support modified because he has less income. To be exact 10 thousand less this year than when child support was originally calculated. Also, there daughter no longer attends daycare all day just after school care. She is saying that it should not be reduced because her costs are going up because there children play alot of sports.

Anyhow my question is are extra-curricular activities included when calculating child support? I would assume they are because Michigan uses a formula based on the average cost of raising a child then take the net incomes and make each parent responsible for there share to raise the child. So wouldn't that include extra-curricular activities?
No they do not have anything in writing it was just a verbal agreement. He does have a txt from her stating she is going to deny him visitation unless he does what she says.
Visitation Issues / denied visitation by mother
Apr 14, 2011, 05:51:36 AM
My fiance has always been very good about doing whatever needs to be done for the kids. The court order states the mother to drop of children at the start of visitation and father to drop of at the end. Mondays from 5pm to 7:30pm and alternate Thursdays from 6pm to Friday 6pm and alternate thursdays from 6pm to Saturday 6pm. So he has them every weekend just depends if they stay just thursday night or thursday and friday night. 

Anyhow she has been working alot of hours so she asked if he could pick up the kids from daycare after he gets out of work. He said yes and has been picking them up for months now and then going to meet her halfway to drop them off a the end of visitation. He also meet her early on Saturdays when the kids have a b-day party that they want to go to or family event with the mother. He takes the kids to all of there practices and games for sporting events. He is very good about doing what is best for the children.

Well recently she started threatning to call the cops if he does not bring the kids to meet her at the end of visitaion as the court order states. So he brings them because he does not want his kids having to see the cops and the huge arguments. Last week he told her no more she needs to bring the kids here at the stated times and he will drop them off he can't have her calling the cops everytime she does not get her way. So now she has denied him his Monday visit stating she does not get out of work until 5:30pm and by the time she picks up the kids and brings them here there is no point in them even coming. And she told him through text that she is going to deny his visitation until she can get the court order changed to make him pick up the kids at the start of visitation and her at the end.

Can the custodial parent mother deny visitation to the father? Is there anything the father can do to get her in trouble for denying visitation? It just frusterates me so bad when she does this. His children are his world he would do anything for them and she knows that and uses them as a weapon.
Yes, His base support for 1 child is 602 and 915 for 2 children a month. Thats not including child care or insurance. I am just wondering how they will calculate him having another child into that.

They had the first court date last week in front of the referee. He is asking for a reduction because of our son and the fact that his daughter is no longer in day care all day so childcare costs have gone down for her. She is contesting saying that now there daughter wants to play sports so she is going to use the childcare money for that and that he should not have had more children. I just don't understand why his life is suppose to end because she wanted a divorce. If they had another child together the money would be distributed to all the children.
I was wondering if someone knew anything about Michigan child support guidlines? I have a child with a man who is divorced and has 2 children from that marriage he pays child support for. We are not married but living together and he helps support our son. Is it possible to get his child support reduced that he pays for his other 2 chidlren to help support our son?
