Sometimes husband and wife teams can be very successful, while others can lead to great conflict. In the case of the latter, divorce proceedings may ensue.
Your divorce may be over, but that does not mean you will never again have to deal with divorce-related matters. Modifications to child custody, child support and alimony are possible when major life circumstances change.
Child support orders are put in place to ensure the proper financial care of a child. However, some life events may warrant a child support modification.
In some instances, marriages do not last, and couples are better off separate from each other. A major part of the divorce process is the separation of assets.
You can see the light at the end of the tunnel: your divorce is almost final. With everything smoothly heading toward the legal end to your marriage, you may be ready to sit back and relax. Avoid giving in to that temptation. Your journey is not over yet.
The time during a divorce can be quite trying. In essence, two parties that became one must now become separate again. Sometimes orchestrating this process can be difficult.
If you face DUI (also called OWI) charges in Michigan, the last thing you should do is simply give up and plead guilty. Some people mistakenly believe they do not need to take DUI charges very seriously. Alternatively, many people are unaware of effective defenses that may help, and therefore believe their cases are hopeless.
If checking your social media accounts has become as much a part of your daily routine as, say, having that morning cup of coffee, you are in good company. Nowadays, staying current on social media is a must for many people. However, if you are using it and also going through a divorce, it is important to recognize the ways your social media usage may impact your case.
A restraining order or protective order is established by a court in order to prevent violence or other harm occurring against one or both parties. The terms contained within the order will depend on the specifics of the situation and the request of the protected party. If you happen to violate the order, you can expect to face considerable legal trouble and the potential of jail time.
Family courts are encouraging both parents to be involved in the children’s lives after a divorce. In fact, the legislature is considering changes to the way child custody is determined in Michigan. Instead of assuming that the mother is the primary caregiver, judges would have to start a case by assuming both parents would have joint custody rights. Research shows that children who have both parents involved do better in school, have higher self-esteem and are more emotionally stable.
