Michigan IV-D Child Support Manual

The Office of Child Support is in the process of moving all policy from the policy manuals and Action Transmittals (ATs) to the new Michigan IV-D Child Support Manual. During the transition to the new manual, some policy information will still be available in the policy manuals and ATs. When there is a conflict between these sources on a given topic, the Michigan IV-D Child Support Manual takes precedence. To research child support policy, look for your topic first in the new manual, then the ATs, then the policy manuals.
