Michigan deals with the role of the state in marriage

Marriage is one of the most ancient institutions in the human experience. Nearly all cultures accepted that people can choose to bond to each other for the purposes of creating a family and home in all of recorded history. The traditional officiant of these marriages has been the church, but the state has stepped in over the last decades.

Methods for valuing common marital assets

One of the most contentious aspects of a divorce is often the valuation of marital property. Once you categorize assets as either marital or separate property, it is time to determine the value of the assets before you decide how to split them. That said, you may not see eye to eye with your spouse on how much certain assets are worth.

The criminal justice system is there to protect society from the ills of crime by punishing the offenders. Although this works well on paper, there are several victims of the attempts to correct problems by aggressively prosecuting people who may not be guilty. This is why the presumption of guilt is a very important part of the system.

Old criminal records may factor into child custody

Children are a family's most precious resource and they can often be the most vulnerable people in a tricky situation. This is also true during parents' issues, especially if they culminate in separation and divorce. Judges in Michigan family courts are predisposed to making decisions for the benefit of the children, so parents often have a case for more rights and time with children if they can demonstrate they can provide the best environment.

Driver injured in apparent hit-and-run in Detroit

Accidents happen all the time in Michigan and around the nation. Although some counties can blame animals like deer as a greatest cause of damage to vehicles in collisions, Detroit's hazards are more often man-made. One of the biggest factors in motor vehicle accidents is the influence of drugs or alcohol, the usage of which creates a state of mind that does not bode well for driving.
