Well-known rapper faces child support issues

Child support payments in Michigan are decided by the courts. The court utilizes a child support formula to come up with the amount of child support that must be paid. The formula takes into account the finances of the parties involved, the needs of the child as well as the best interest of the child.

The intent of child support is not to punish the parent that has to pay the support. Rather the purpose of child support is completely for the benefit of the child.
