Ways to get the most out of a prenuptial agreement

When considering marriage, the concept of simultaneously considering divorce via the creation of a prenuptial agreement can be hard for many Michigan couples to contemplate. However, realities about property division, especially if a business is involved or if one or both spouses high significant financial holdings, can make a premarital contract a wise decision.

Risk factors in divorce may include geography

Marriages end for many reasons and no two divorces are the same. People that have lived through a divorce in Michigan could tell many a story about the reasons for their divorces. The process of every divorce is also unique. Each couple must navigate challenges with settlements and agreements pertaining to spousal maintenance, child support, property division and more.

Tribal laws can allow same-sex marriages

The topic of same-sex marriage is one that taking great attention around the nation. Each state seems to have different ways of handling the laws surrounding marriage and non-traditional unions. While Michigan residents wait for a change to the current ban on gay and lesbian marriages in their state, others around the nation do the same.
A recent news article, however, reported on an interesting loophole for gay marriages in Michigan and in other states. This statute applies specifically to people of Native American descent. Some tribal laws have been passed to allow the legalization of same-sex marriages under their jurisdiction—even in states where the overall state law does not permit it.

Third-party expertise can be helpful in a divorce

Couples in Michigan who experience a divorce are faced with numerous decisions and challenges during the process. The development of divorce settlements is rarely easy and can be complicated by issues surrounding property division, spousal support and more. The need to find ways to navigate through each topic and come to mutually acceptable agreements is something both spouses must work hard to do.
