Prenuptial agreements can protect wealth under family law

People often consider prenuptial agreements to protect their own wealth, but what about family estates? Children coming from wealthy families about to get married should consider whether their marriage will put family owned assets in jeopardy. Understanding Michigan family law as it relates to marital property and coming up with a secure prenuptial agreement can be helpful in these cases.

New law to limit forfeiture after successful criminal defense

Civil forfeiture is one of the more controversial aspects of arrests or investigations. Recently, lawmakers in Michigan passed a bill 83-26 to tighten the rules on what property can be seized by police in relation to drug investigations. The law will ensure the property of those who are found innocent in their criminal defense cannot be held by law enforcement.

Family law considerations when divorcing early in a marriage

Whether it happens 50 days or 50 years in, divorce can happen for a variety of reasons. Divorces which take place within the first year of a marriage can raise eyebrows, but there are many behind-the-scenes reasons that these breakups could make sense for the parties involved. There may be fewer legal considerations when ending a young marriage, though shared property or children must still be considered under Michigan family law.

Family law considerations when getting married later in life

Couples getting married at any stage in life should think about long term plans and property ownership. However, those getting married later in life may have more assets and be in the thick of estate planning, giving them more to consider when tying the knot. Here are some of the unique family law issues that older engaged couples in Michigan should keep in mind when planning for a happy and financially healthy future together.

The 3 dangerous D's of driving

So many factors play a role in the safety of driving, from driver experience to vehicle safety to road conditions. Some of these factors are in your control, but others are not, especially those involving other motorists.

Family law and custody knowledge is important for schools

Conflict at home can often have an influence on many aspects of a child's life. For this reason, it is a good idea for Michigan teachers and administrators to have an understanding of how family law conflicts can affect the children involved and how to keep students safe during a custody dispute. A thorough visitor management process and staff trained in child custody paperwork are good methods to keep children safe in these cases.
