Proposed legislation to protect children from sex offender parents

Michigan couples understand the complexities and emotions involved in a divorce or a separation, especially when children are involved. Child custody issues not only involve the interests of both parents, but those of the child. Continuing a relationship with a child after the parents split can be challenging, especially when the interests of each parent differ. Understanding what is the best interest of the child is the most crucial thing to consider in any child custody dispute. The protection of the child should be the priority when determining sole and joint custody of a child.

Famous or not, child custody is the same in the eyes of the court

Child custody cases can affect all walks of life in a variety of ways. But, whether one is a famous, well-known actor or simply an average Joe, when dealing with child custody issues, the same rules apply to all. The courts do not take into account someone's status in society when ruling in child custody situations. The courts use the best interest of the child standard to make child custody determinations. This standard primarily takes into account where the child will thrive emotionally and physically, where the child will be cared for financially and the child's own wishes when applicable.

Families and tax payers suffer when child support isn't paid

In Michigan, child support is mandated by the courts to ensure that a children are cared for financially. The court looks at all the circumstances surrounding the child support order so that the amount that the court decides on is adequate for the care of the child. In making child support determinations, the court does not want to place anyone in financial hardship; however, the court will not tolerate when people fail to pay for the care of their child.

Michigan bill would deter international child custody battles

When a couple decides to divorce, there are many issues and disagreements that may potentially arise. One of the most common battles in divorce proceedings concerns child custody. Even when couples have managed to come to an amicable agreement on all other terms of the divorce, these disputes can be some of the most contentious and heated issues in divorce proceedings.

Divorce on the rise as Michigan economy recovers

The economic recession of recent years has had repercussions in virtually every aspect of Michiganders' lives - homes have gone into foreclosure, jobs have been lost and communities changed forever. Dreams have been put on hold, from college to family vacations and even retirement. And perhaps surprisingly, many married couples have also been putting off one other important move: the decision to get a divorce.
