Navigating All Michigan Divorce Issues
The Van Den Heuvel Law Office is prepared to handle your divorce case, no matter how complex or contentious. Some of the most common issues we negotiate on behalf of our Ludington divorce clients include the following:
- Division of Property: As an equitable distribution state, Michigan spouses receive an equitable, but not necessarily equal, split of the marital assets and debts. This includes complex financial accounts and instruments, which our office is prepared to review and negotiate for on your behalf. If your spouse incurred significant debt or used assets for items outside of the marital home you might be entitled to a greater share of assets in the divorce.
- Alimony: Due to changes in the federal tax code, the issue of spousal support in Michigan divorce cases has become more contentious. The purpose of alimony payments is to help support the lesser-earning spouse as they become financially independent after the divorce. Our office will review the financial situation of both spouses and argue for the alimony payments you deserve or fight to ensure that you only pay your former spouse what is fair.
- Child Custody and Support: Matters of child custody and support are often the most emotionally taxing issues to negotiate in a divorce case. We understand the importance of spending time with your child and promise to always keep their best interests in mind when advocating for custody and support. We will fight for custody or as much visitation time as possible in addition to ensuring that support payments will maintain your child’s standard of living even after the divorce.
