If you or your spouse have made the decision to dissolve your marriage or you are seeking child support from an ex-spouse, it is important to have an advocate by your side that protects your rights as well as the rights of your family
COMMON ISSUES THAT ARE CONTESTED
DURING A DIVORCE
Divorce is almost by definition an antagonistic process, and virtually any aspect of the agreement can cause complications. However, some factors more commonly lead to contested cases than others, including:
Determining spousal support (alimony);
Arranging child custody and visitation;
Children with special needs
Children from a previous marriage
Division of pensions through a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO)
Property like real estate, stocks, pensions, art, and antiques
We deeply understand your family law matters, and provide an affordable way to resolve them.
MICHIGAN UNCONTESTED DIVORCE
Divorce never easy, but an uncontested divorce can make for less hostility and less time in court, especially if the divorce is handled by an experienced Michigan Uncontested Divorce Attorney. The couple has already agreed upon parameters within the divorce decrees, and they simply must file the paperwork and begin the divorce proceedings. The majority of uncontested divorces have the following characteristics:
No real estate
No joint bank accounts
No claim for alimony/spousal support/maintenance
No claim for attorneys fees
No claim against any advanced or professional degrees
No claim for health insurance or life insurance
You can trust our established legal team to listen, advise, and aggressively pursue your best interests
Agreeing how you’re going to care for your kids with your ex partner - including where they will live now you are separated or divorced - can be a minefield. Currently, most family courts in Michigan decide to leave children with their mothers in the vast majority of divorce cases. Also, the family court can decide the arrangements for a child spending time with either parent or keeping in contact with them. We know, however, that court proceedings can be lengthy, expensive and stressful. There are a number of strategies that we can use to help improve the situation without having the court involve.
Michigan No-Fault Divorce Laws made breaking up easier to do, passing a no-fault divorce law that stands to reduce long, cutthroat court battles over who’s to blame when marriages fail. So, Infidelity? Mental cruelty? These, along with other fault-based grounds are not applicable in Michigan. The only grounds for dissolving a marriage that you need to show in court called "irreconcilable differences".
Even we have no-fault divorce, our attorneys can help in situations where neither party is at fault for the divorce, division of property can be determine for any number of reasons including Infidelity, mental cruelty and spousal abuse. Some examples of property or debts that may need to be divided include the following:
Jewelry and valuables;
Mortgage and vehicle loans;
Credit card debt.
If you’re getting divorced, don’t assume that everything will be divided 50:50. It may be the starting point for the courts, but one partner may end up with more, or less, than half. Any property acquired during your marriage will be considered marital (except property acquired by gift or inheritance to only one spouse).
Michigan is an equitable distribution state which means that, in the event of a divorce, marital property is not automatically split 50-50. Rather, equitable distribution is defined as the division of marital assets in a manner that is fair but not necessarily equal.
Are Assets Split 50/50 in Michigan Divorce?
