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

Your divorce will be contested if either you or your spouse do not want to get a divorce, disagree about the grounds (legal reason) for the divorce, or disagree about what will happen with your children, your property or your finances after the divorce. However, some factors more commonly lead to contested cases than others, including:

Business interests
Prenuptial agreements
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 children
No real estate
No joint bank accounts
No assets
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
Who Gets Custody?
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:

Real estate;
Motor vehicles;
Recreational vehicles;
Investments;
Retirement accounts;
Cash;
Jewelry and valuables;
Personal property;
Business interests;
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?
Protecting the Best Interests 
of the Children
When parents make the decision to move forward with a divorce, they must also decide custody and support of their children. In almost every divorce that involves children, the court wants parents to take care of the children. Whether you are seeking to establish initial custody orders or need guidance for a modification of custody orders, we are prepared to meet your legal needs.
