Want to be happier? Science says address your family law issues

Even when it is obvious that a marriage is not going well, some people in Michigan still feel obligated to tough things out. Whether it is a parent hoping to make things work for the children or someone who is scared of what life after divorce might bring, evidence indicates that it may be better to simply address family law issues head-on. Consider these benefits of taking that first step toward divorce.

Do I need permission from family law court to move?

You may have been excited when you were offered a new job or received an exciting educational opportunity, only to quickly deflate when you realized the distance involved. As a divorced parent, relocating to a new area can be complicated. Depending on the distance, you may even need to petition family law court for a modification of your child custody order before you can move.

Anna Faris and Chris Pratt take collaborative family law approach

TV shows and movies often like to depict divorces as all-out legal battles, but a real-life celebrity couple recently took a much more collaborative approach. Anna Faris and Chris Pratt settled their family law issues through a private judge, but details regarding the settlement are emerging. Michigan movie fans might be surprised by some of their choices or inspired to incorporate them into their own ongoing divorces.

Does family law protect against hidden assets?

You already know that you and your ex must divide your marital property during a divorce. However, before doing so, you must first disclose and value all of these assets. While you might have dutifully provided all of the necessary information, there is no guarantee that your ex did the same. Unfortunately, hiding assets is not an uncommon family law issue in the state of Michigan.

Are millennials bucking family law trends?

From ruining industries to taking on too much debt, millennials in Michigan tend to take a lot of flak for their life choices. However, there may not be much to criticize in the latest industry they are accused of disrupting -- the divorce industry. For a number of reasons, this generation of young adults are encountering fewer family law issues than their parents.

Prenuptial agreements make family law issues easier

Thinking of marriage as "till death do us part" is a nice sentiment, but it is not always a reality. Divorce is a part of life that many people in Michigan will have to deal with, and it is usually best to be prepared. Prenuptial agreements are helpful in this manner as they can lay the groundwork for addressing complicated family law issues. 

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. However, when someone has a friend that his or her spouse does not particularly care for, he or she could be more likely to end up in family law court. 

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.
