There are many contentious issues that can arise during a Michigan divorce that require an experienced divorce attorney to resolve with minimal trouble. Some of the most common issues that arise during the divorce process include the following:
Property Distribution: Michigan is an equitable distribution state, which means that the marital assets and debts must be split equitably, but not necessarily equally, in a divorce. Certain circumstances in your unique case may mean that one spouse receives less or more in the distribution of property, and having an experienced divorce attorney by your side can make all the difference in what you walk away with after the divorce is finalized.
Spousal Support: Also known as alimony, spousal support is payment from the higher earning spouse to the lesser earning spouse during and after the divorce while the lesser earning spouse becomes financially independent. The court looks at a number of factors when determining the amount of alimony and how long the payments should last.
Child Custody and Visitation: Often one of the most emotional decisions during a divorce is the determination of child custody and visitation rights. We fight hard for our clients’ rights to be part of their children’s lives after a divorce.
Child Support: The well-being and quality of life of a child should never be compromised because of a divorce, and our office will ensure that all relevant factors are considered when negotiating the proper amount of child support that should be awarded in a divorce.
