Child custody and divorce are prime topics during month of March

March is a busy month for many Michigan families. In addition to the many activities that each family member is involved in, March is also one of the busiest months for divorce filings. Some couples have battled through the holiday season and have finally decided that things will just not work out. For many, decisions regarding property division, child support and child custody are the only items left in the relationship.

This often leaves divorced fathers in Michigan with limited visitation until children are older. However, a recent study reveals that when fathers have child custody from the earliest years, the children benefit in many crucial ways.
