101. Child Support
You seem very angry, The laws in Michigan and everywhere else should be changed. The non custodial parent has always been taken advantage of male or female. It takes two to have a child and it takes two to provide for that child NOT THE WELFARE SYSTEM. If and only if there is NO documented abuse(prior)to the seperation by either parent the parents should recieve joint custody NO CHILD SUPPORT. If one of the parents refuse joint custody for any reason that parent should pay child support not according to their income but a base amount 1 child this amount 2 children this amount and so on if you can't afford it joint custody it is for you. This "the child's life style" should remain intact is plain BullShit. Children of divorce are affected plain and simple. If the mother never worked it is time to man up and get a job and provide the best her income can. If the father losses his job he needs to provide the best he can. I would bet money that all of the white collar employees that lost their jobs and losing their homes wish their children could still have the lifestyle they were accustom too also but unfortunately that is not always the case. The money doesn't matter to the children it matters to the scorned parent. Children want love not a child support check. Adults with or without children should live within their means. By all of your comments it seems you have never faced a difficult financial time and lucky for you, but if you every are faced with a real hardship it just might soften you alittle.
