Court orders child support payments to continue for adopted boy

In family law, there are many instances in which the courts will make decisions for the parties involved, depending on the circumstances of the case. For example, regarding child support, Michigan courts are actively involved and are very adamant about compliance.

Child support modification request could help some in Brighton

Child support is the money paid to a custodial parent to help care for a child and provide for a child's needs. In Michigan, arrangements regarding child support are usually handled by courts, and the courts are in charge of setting up a payment schedule as well as the amount paid.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes agree on primary custody

Many Michigan residents likely followed the recent divorce of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Popular for movies like "Top Gun" and "Mission: Impossible," Tom Cruise is a mega-star. Best known for her role in the popular television series "Dawson's Creek," Katie Holmes became a household name when she married Tom Cruise in 2006. Six years later they are divorced, and their prenuptial agreement was apparently not in dispute and thus not a barrier to their divorce agreement, which was surprisingly settled only 11 days after Holmes filed the divorce papers.

Divorce among older couples increasingly common

In Michigan, as in many other states, the divorce rate is high and steadily rising. According to some statistics, while 50 percent of first marriages end in divorce, 67 percent of second marriages and 74 percent of third marriages in the United States also end in divorce.

Is Facebook part of a new era in divorce proceedings?

If you are considering divorce, have you thought about the possibility of having to turn over your Facebook password to the court? That happened at least once in the last year, and Michigan residents who are considering divorce may want to log in to their social networking accounts to do a little house cleaning, if not some outright "de-friending."
