Why more couples are choosing prenups

When people in Michigan get married, they may consider a prenuptial agreement. In the past, many people thought of prenups as a form of legal protection for celebrities or those with substantial generational wealth. However, people are choosing to marry after they have already developed their careers, launched businesses and invested in real estate, and many people marry others equally accomplished as themselves. As a result, a prenuptial agreement can be a wise choice for people of all financial means planning to marry.

Navigating co-parenting in a high-conflict divorce

When parents in Michigan decide to divorce, the next step is often moving to co-parenting. In a high-conflict situation, this can be a deeply problematic transition. Children often have strong emotional needs after the divorce, and absent a context of abuse or neglect, kids tend to benefit from a relationship with both parents. In a custody case, the primary consideration is the child's best interests, not the relationship between the parents. However, navigating a co-parenting relationship can be highly challenging, especially if one partner is manipulative, selfish or narcissistic.

Changing a child custody hearing date

Parents in Michigan should make every effort to appear in court for their child custody or support hearings. If circumstances make attending a certain court date difficult or impossible, then a court might accommodate a person's request to alter the hearing date under limited circumstances.

Joint custody after divorce

When parents in Michigan divorce, they are often concerned about the well-being of their children. Both parents generally want to remain involved in their kid's lives and contribute to their support. In recent years, there has been a change in how custody has been divided between parents.

Managing finances when going through the divorce process

In addition to the emotional stress that Michigan couples face as they go through a divorce, they are likely to face some financial problems. However, there are steps that individuals can take to help them to better understand and maintain control of their finances and investments during this difficult process.

How can you enforce your custody order when your ex won't comply?

Shared custody is a common outcome in a Michigan divorce. The courts want to do what is best for your children, which will usually mean helping them maintain the love and support of both parents. Whether you have an even 50/50 split of custody or see your kids a few nights a week and alternating holidays and weekends, you likely treasure every moment of time you get to spend with them now that you have less of that precious bonding time.
