What steps are involved in a contested divorce?

While divorces are rarely easy, some couples in Michigan are able to come to terms with major issues at the end of their marriage. For many others, establishing guidelines about custody, visitation, and property division can be all but impossible. Live About explains what goes on when divorces are contested, and what you can do to successfully navigate the process.

Modifying your initial custody arrangement

Going through a Michigan divorce is challenging, even when all parties involved agree that it is for the best. After finalizing the settlement and parenting plan, life typically falls into a new routine. However, life changes over time and modifications to the custody arrangement must occur to keep up with those changes. At the Law Offices of Lorrie J. Zahodnic, P.C., we have experience helping clients with child custody issues such as modifying court-approved parenting plans.

Start preparing for your divorce now

January is a popular time for couples to divorce in Michigan and throughout the country. This is because most choose to make it through the holidays first, whether it is to keep the kids happy or to avoid uncomfortable family gatherings. If you and your spouse are choosing to start the proceedings in the New Year, you can still take steps now to better prepare yourself for the process.

How can I prevent conflicts during the holidays?

Unfortunately, the holidays can be a very stressful time for many people in Michigan. This is especially true for recently divorced couples, who may be at odds regarding scheduling and other issues. There are steps you can take to mitigate conflict however, as explained by VeryWellMind.com.

Family law, from a first-timer’s perspective

For many people, family law issues are tough. From child support modification to filing a divorce petition and fighting over child custody, legal issues which involve former spouses and family members can be emotionally draining and may impact a person’s future in various ways. For some people, such as those who have never dealt with family law issues before (or even been to court, for that matter), handling family law issues can be especially difficult.

Debts and divorce

If you are like a lot of people in Michigan, when you have historically thought about getting divorced, your mind becomes keenly aware of the possessions or assets that you might lose in the process. Certainly, this may be part of a divorce but along the way, any debts you and your spouse have must also be addressed. If your debt situation is serious enough, you may even be contemplating filing for divorce. Knowing how or when to do this relative to your divorce requires some investigation. 

How should I discipline my kids as a single parent?

Being a single parent is tough. This is particularly true when it comes to disciplining your children, which is often complicated by a number of issues after a divorce takes place. However, proper discipline is most important in this case, as illustrated by VeryWellFamily.com. The following tips can help you raise your kids in an effective and loving manner, no matter what other issues may come into play.

Becoming divorced to your spouse

If you are a Michigan citizen in an unhappy marriage situation, you may be considering divorce as an option. However, we at the Law Office of Lorrie J. Zahodnic recognize that the end of your marriage is not the same as the end of your relationship with your spouse. During the divorce process, the two of you will have possible contact, and if you and your spouse have children together, some measure of relationship will remain between the two of you for the rest of your lives. That is why we say that you become divorced to your spouse rather than from your spouse.

What’s the difference between a divorce and an annulment?

If you wish to put an end to your marriage, you probably have questions about the best way to proceed. Some even look into ending their unions by way of an annulment, which can be a complex legal procedure in most cases. VeryWellMind.com explains these differences so you can make the best decision about ending your marriage.
