Is co-parenting right for you and your family?

In the past, most child custody agreements came down to one parent, or the other, getting primary physical custody. The other parent would then typically receive visitation. However, in recent years, families throughout Michigan, and elsewhere, are opting to co-parent. However, this option is not necessarily right for everyone. At The Law Offices of Lorrie J. Zahodnic, P.C., we often consult with people who are unsure whether they should attempt to co-parent, or if they should pursue other custody options. In this post then, we will discuss how to decide if co-parenting is right for your family.

Dealing with stock options during divorce

More and more employers in Michigan, and elsewhere, are offering their employees stock options. While this can be a potentially valuable asset for you and your family, it can make for a more complex asset division should you decide to divorce. At The Law Offices of Lorrie J. Zahodnic, P.C., we often consult with people who have stock options and are unsure how a divorce may affect them. In this post, we will discuss how these options may be handled during property division.

How are assets divided in Michigan divorces?

At the end of a marriage, hurt feelings and other emotions are often at play. As such, it can be difficult for divorcing spouses to effectively communicate with each other and negotiate settlements. This can make the division of property, which is often one of the most contentious aspects of a divorce, all the more complicated. In cases when Michigan couples cannot reach an agreement on their own, the decision typically falls to the courts if there is not a prenuptial agreement already in place.
