Musician gets behind on child support payments

Child support payments are ordered so that the children of a divorced or separated couple are financially secure. Since children do not usually have a say in whether or not parents stay together, a child's interest needs to be protected and this is what the courts are there to do. Therefore, in making child support decisions, the courts look at the best interest of the child and use that criteria, along with others, to set the amount of child support that needs to be paid.

Trend sees more older Americans living as unmarried couples

Many Michigan residents may have noticed a new cohabitation trend. It seems as though living together without intention of marriage is not just for younger folks. So-called unmarried baby boomer couples--couples with at least one partner over the age of 50--are on the rise. Living as unmarried couples is logical for older couples who have "been there, done that" in terms of the stresses of marriage and raising children.

Warning signs of hidden assets during property division

Michigan couples who find themselves at the end of a marriage are likely thinking about who will get what when they each go their separate ways. Some items, like a house or even a family pet, are not things that can be divided up. A divorcing couple will, however, need to find ways to split up their financial assets in the event of a divorce.

Applicable divorce regulations differ depending on the state

Michigan readers know there are many issues that accompany a divorce. Some of these issues include property division, post-divorce modifications, prenuptial agreements, spousal support, alimony, child custody, child support and visitation plans. Depending on the nature of the divorce and where the parties stand on certain issues, some or all of these issues may come into play. When dealing with a divorce, it is better for both parties to have a clear position on all possible issues instead of leaving them to chance.

Common questions that arise for couples considering divorce

When married couples in Michigan are struggling in their relationship, emotions often run high and it can be difficult to come to terms with what needs to be done to better the situation for all that are involved, including children. In many cases, divorce may be the best next step. However, once a couple decides to divorce, the situation does not necessarily get immediately easier as they must now venture into the legal realities of separation.
