Family law: Handling child support in joint custody situations

The average Michigan family probably looks much different than it did 10 or 20 years ago. Not only do many households now have two adults working outside of the home, but family law issues are changing too. Joint custody is increasingly the norm in cases of divorced parents, but that has some questioning how they should handle child support issues. 

Fortnite -- the newest family law issue

Playing video games as a hobby or a means to relax and unwind is fairly common in Michigan. Unfortunately, some people claim their spouses are taking gaming too far, and it is leading to a variety of family law issues. Increasingly, online multi-player games are pushing some couples toward divorce. 

Can one's friends push one towards family law court?

Having friends is an important part of the human experience. Most people in Michigan confide in their friends when things are not going so well and celebrate together when things are good.

Types of child custody in Michigan family law

Parents who put off filing for divorce out of fear that they will no longer be as active of a parent are usually doing little more than dragging out a bad situation. This only makes matters worse for everyone in the long run. Having a better understanding of Michigan family law and how it applies to child custody matters can help ease some of these worries. 

Student loans have surprising family law repercussions

Recent high school graduates about to head into their first year of college are probably acutely aware of just how much debt they are taking on.

While most understand that they will carry these loans for years or even decades after graduation, few may realize the impact this debt could have on their future family law needs. 

Family law best practices when going through a custody battle

During divorce proceedings, it is not uncommon for one or both parents to not see their child for periods of time as custody is decided. When dealing with family law issues related to custody, there are a few things Michigan parents should keep in mind. Following legal best practices and behaving appropriately can help people who are trying to get more time with their child or children.

Family law understanding and emotional maturity helps in divorce

There are many different definitions of what it means to have a "successful" divorce. Some define it as negotiating a fair settlement where everyone gets the right amount of assets and protections under family law. Others interpret it as a divorce that is quick and involves less conflicts. Almost every person going through a divorce in Michigan will come into contact with challenges and emotional decisions throughout the process. Here are some tips for getting through a divorce in a civil, psychologically healthy way.

Family law may influence estate plans of divorcing individuals

When people undergo a divorce, changes often are needed across multiple aspects of their lives. Estate planning is one of the things people should consider during and after a marriage ends. Michigan individuals should look into their estate plans during all major life changes, as many issues related to wills and wealth transition can be influenced by family law.

Consider family law and taxes when planning post-divorce finances

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 800,000 couples in the United States divorce each year. The reasons behind these divorces may vary, but almost all of these breakups involve big family law and financial considerations. Michigan individuals who need to rebuild financially after a divorce are advised to think ahead so they can advocate for their needs in mediation or court.

Family law may restrict travel with kids during divorce

Choosing to end a marriage can be a challenging undertaking. As former couples work through issues like custody and division of assets, many face issues under family law that can restrict travel and cost additional money. It is a good idea for divorcing couples in Michigan to understand the possible restrictions they may face as they go through a divorce process.
