Warning flags that your spouse may be hiding marital property

If you and your spouse have chosen to separate and divorce, the last thing you may expect is that he or she is hiding marital property. However, here at The Law Offices of Lorrie J. Zahodnic, P.C., we know that such things happen, and this can leave you with less assets or money than what you are legally entitled to under Michigan’s equitable division law.

Does Michigan recognize de facto parents in same-sex cases?

You have been involved in a relationship with another person of the same sex in Clinton Township. Together, you decided that you wanted to be parents. Your partner contributed the sperm or was inseminated, and therefore is the biological parent. On the other hand, you have no biological connection to the child and you never legally adopted the child. Do you have rights as a de facto parent if the relationship has ended?

Oakland County judge under fire over custody case

No parent in Clinton Township who is going through a custody dispute will say that it is easy.  Emotions are running high as each parent tries to convince a judge to rule in his or her favor. There are often arguments over how much time the children spend with each parent and which parent will maintain legal and/or physical custody. In some cases, parents accuse each other of alienating their children from them. Regardless of the nature of the battle, it is up to the judge to keep a cool head but sometimes even a judge will lose patience.

Health insurance after divorce: What you need to know

Couples going through a divorce in Michigan have numerous considerations to make, and health insurance does not always become a priority concern. However, a recent study found that one in four women insured through their husband ended up uninsured after a divorce, according to WebMD. It was not simply a temporary situation, either, as many stay that way for more than two years. There are a few ways that women could make sure that they have adequate coverage after they no longer are covered by their ex-spouse's insurance plan.

Amicable divorce impacts children, too

When a couple divorces in Michigan, the parties must determine many things, including whether or not there will be any alimony or child support payments. When there are children involved, they often do as much as possible to reduce the impact on the children. This typically involves trying to get through the divorce as amicably as possible. A recent study found that whether or not the divorce was amicable did not significantly make a difference on the impact on children, according to Woman'sDay.
