Most Michigan custodial parents are entitled to collect child support from the noncustodial parent. After a parent initiates the process of collecting child support in Michigan, a hearing is scheduled. Both parties must attend the child support hearing. You can monitor the status of your child support case once the application is submitted and the case is established. Either party can access detailed case information.
Contact the local Friend of Court after applying for child support. The Friend of Court can provide information on a hearing date if the orders have not yet been determined. If you have an existing case, the clerk can provide case information such as payment history.
Visit the Michigan State Disbursement Unit website. Your current address will need to be on file with the Friend of Court handling your case. Provide personal information to register. Through the website, recipients can decide how they wish to receive payments. Those required to pay child support can make credit or debit card payments through the website.
Go to Michigan.gov. The Michigan Department of Human Services allow you to access case information through the website.
Complete the registration on the Michigan Department of Human Services website. You will need to enter your personal information, including your name, address and Social Security number. You must also provide your case number. Create a user name and password to access your account.
Review your case information. Once you are registered on Michigan.gov, you can view case details. You can also make payments through the site.
Contact the Office of the Prosecutor in your Michigan county. After applying for child support, your information is referred to a case specialist. The specialist reviews your application and sends the information to the prosecutor to establish your case. If your case information is not available through Michigan.gov or the courthouse, you may want to check on the status of the child support order by calling the prosecutor.
