In Michigan, Failing to Pay Child Support is a Felony
Failure to pay child support can result in charges of Felony Non-Support being brought against you. While the Court doesn’t really want to send you jail; it wants you to pay the past due amount. But if they think you won’t pay anyway, you are going to jail. Plus there are certain statutory rules the Judge must follow in these cases such as bond.

An Experienced and Aggressive Child Support Attorney May be Able to Negotiate a Deal, get a reasonable payment plan, or even get the arrearage forgiven.
An experienced attorney may be able to negotiate a deal with the Attorney General’s office as well as the Friend of the Court to arrange a reasonable payment plan. Or your lawyer may be able to help you negotiate a lump sum, lesser amount, payment of what you owe, or the other person may even waive what you owe.

Deferred Sentence
In addition, some prosecutors and Judges will agree to a deferred sentence that means the felony charges could be dismissed or reduced to a misdemeanor.
