High asset divorces have potential to linger unresolved

Divorce can be painful, emotional and sad and even malicious. Since divorce is such a difficult emotional barrier to cross, there is a good likelihood that it may provoke ill will. Divorce is the ending of a relationship, the ending of a union that was thought to last forever; that is a lot to deal with on an emotional level. For some Michigan couples, a relatively amicable divorce may be possible. However, even the most amicable of divorces can experience trouble if lots of money is at stake.

Property division in high asset divorces can be complicated

Property division is a major part of the divorce proceedings, as people want to ensure that their futures are financially secure with respect to property. One general rule is that what you owned prior to being married is not considered marital property. Marital property is all of the things that the couple acquired during the life of the marriage. This is sort of a bright-line test for property division in divorce proceedings. It gives the courts guidance when dealing with property matters and clearly defines what is and what is not considered marital property.

Divorce is not an easy thing to go through, especially if you have children. What will happen with the children and how they will be supported are two big questions that need to be addressed in divorce. The care and custody of the children are of paramount concern for the courts because ensuring the child's well-being is of the utmost concern for all involved. When making child support decisions, the courts do take into consideration the financial standing of who will be paying the support.

Child custody is such a hot button topic in divorce cases because in some instances a parent's relationship with his or her child will be forever changed. To go from being with one's child every single day to a potential situation where that is not the case can be emotionally devastating for both the child and the parent. This is why courts take child custody issues very seriously and make every effort to ensure the child is placed in the best home, irrespective of what the parents may want. In doing this, courts utilize the best interest of the child standard to guide its decisions.
