What does the Friend of the Court do?

The goal of the Michigan family court judge is to discover the best interests of your child when determining custody. MichiganLegalHelp.org explains that if you and your spouse are not able to agree on a parenting plan or other issues based on court guidelines, a Friend of the Court may get involved and make a recommendation to the judge.

Dealing with stress during divorce

The emotional strain that led to your Michigan divorce can get even worse as you go through the legal process, making coming to an agreement on property division and custody issues even more difficult. At The Law Office of Lorrie J. Zahodnic, our team often works with people to find solutions to the stresses of divorce.

Ways spouses hide marital property

In some divorce situations, it is not uncommon for spouses in Michigan to allege that their spouses are hiding assets. Spouses are required to provide a truthful, accurate and detailed accounting of their assets and finances in a divorce. Some individuals have marital assets they do not want their partners to know about, so they do not disclose them to the courts. It is also a strategy that some individuals use if they have been contemplating divorce for a while. Hiding information about assets in a divorce is against the law. It is also a very common occurrence.

Before signing your child up for sports

Even though former spouses are co-parenting amicably in Michigan, they may not have the same priorities for their parenting time. One may prefer a more structured schedule, while the other enjoys relaxing at home or going on spontaneous outings. While addressing extracurricular activities during the development of a parenting plan is ideal, if they are not mentioned, working out the details could become problematic when the parents do not share similar goals.

Dissipation of assets and your financial future

If you have been used to a comfortable standard of living during your marriage in Michigan, but now you are facing divorce, you may wonder how much of your current financial situation will carry over into your future as a single person. This will largely be determined by the court during the division of assets, which will be equitable based on the judge’s ruling rather than fifty-fifty. The team at The Law Office of Lorrie J. Zahodnic, P.C., has helped many people whose spouses have dissipated assets as a way to deprive them of their rights.
