Technology gives divorced parents a hand in working together

After a divorce involving minor children, many Michigan parents may find it challenging to figure out how to work together to raise their children. Despite wanting the best for their kids, the conflicts that led to the divorce may creep into parenting issues and get in the way of positive communication that helps the kids. What can people in this situation do?

What is an established custodial environment?

If you or your child’s other parent is interested in making changes to your child custody agreement in Michigan, the judge will have to determine whether the modification is in the best interests of your child. According to the Michigan Custody Guideline, this includes verifying whether there is an established custodial environment already in place in your home, the other parent’s home, or both.

Dividing real property: Don’t forget the mineral rights

Couples may believe that a happy marriage requires more than financial stability and possessions. However, leaving a marriage that includes these things in substantial amounts may be difficult, since it typically involves more complex processes to identify, value and equally divide these assets. So, as MichiganLegalHelp.org explains, dividing Michigan real estate and other assets often requires outside assistance, even when a couple wants to work things out amicably.

Are you prepared to divide retirement benefits?

At any time of life, a Michigan divorce may present financial challenges, but as you near retirement age, special attention to certain details may be warranted. Even if you and your spouse are willing to come to an agreement over the details of the division of the marital property, a lack of information may lead to a mistake that impedes your well-being after retirement.
