Michigan promotes the idea of parenting time in child custody


There are a plethora of matters that have to be sorted out when divorcing. Some of these matters can be handled quite amicably and without having to get the courts involved. Other issues are more complex and require court attention. With respect to child custody in divorce, this topic tends to fall into the complex category in most cases. Because every parent wants to spend time with their child and be with them on a continual, regular basis, divorce can throw a wrench into this and leave the parents feeling upset. Undoubtedly, when a court issues a child custody order, even if it is for joint custody, the relationship between the parent and the child will inevitably change.

What does this move by the Catholic Church mean for all?


The Catholic Church has a long standing history of sharing its feelings on gay marriage and unmarried couples. In general, they were not very accepting of either. And this may have been the case with other religions as well; however, the Catholicis made a point of making its feelings known. So, with that being said, there has been an unspoken, ongoing battle among those in a gay marriage, unwed couples and the church. Not that the church had a role whatsoever in gay marriage becoming legal or in any other aspect having to do with a couples existence; but, if a person who was born and raised Catholic and wanted to still be a part of the church and participate in either a gay marriage or as an unmarried couple, it made it very difficult to remain a part of the Catholic Church.

Divorced happily ever after


Divorce is highly emotional and can be combative, depending on the relationship between the parties. With that being said, it is very difficult to believe that a couple who gets divorced can become friends after everything is said and done; however, it does happen. Dealing with issues like child custody, child support, spousal support, prenuptial agreements and alimony are all very difficult matters to handle in the wake of a divorce. If these issues and others that have to be decided during a divorce proceeding can be done amicably, then there is a chance that a friendship can result at the end of the day.

How can I find the other parent to get child support?


Michigan parents have a continuing responsibility to care for their children regardless of whether the two parents remain together in a relationship or whether the child lives with a parent. Child support from both parents is critical to ensuring that the child's needs are met and that one parent does not have to bear the burden of paying for health care, child care and all other child-rearing expenses alone.
