No matter the years married, divorce can still happen

Marriage is a gamble simply because there is no guarantee that the relationship will last for forever. No matter the length of time that a couple is married, divorce is always a very real possibility. When facing a divorce, the most important thing is to be prepared and to know the ins and outs of divorce procedures. Each state handles divorce differently and each state has it's own rules and regulations with respect to divorce. How the parties want to handle the divorce will, to some extent, dictate court procedures.

Movement to change alimony gaining ground across America

Getting a divorce can be a difficult experience. Tempers can flare, arguments can break out, and it can be extremely hard for the parting spouses to agree on family legal issues. Child custody, child support, and spousal support will then be disputed during court hearings before a judge, who will then make the final determinations.

Michigan court recognizes rights in domestic partnership

Unmarried couples can come in two different forms. These are known as traditional unmarried couples and untraditional unwed couples. A traditional unmarried couple consists of a man and a woman. However, in this day and age, there are untraditional unmarried couples as well, which consist of couples of the same gender. This is also termed domestic partnerships. Individuals in a domestic partnership consider themselves to be in a relationship whereby certain rights can be beneficial to those in the relationship, such as health insurance and certain property rights.

Michigan judge awards custody to grandfather over father

Although child custody is often evident in divorce proceedings, there are other instances where child custody decisions must be made. In situations where neither parent is available to care for their child, the court has to step in and decide where the child will reside. In making child custody decisions, the courts use the best interest of the child standard. This standard looks at all the facts and circumstances of the situation and then applies those to what is in the child's best interest. Sometimes all parties involved agree with the court's decision and sometimes they don't.
