Michigan child support basics

Regardless of the parent's relationship, children need support from both of them. In addition to love and affection, it takes money to raise a child. Whether the parents are finalizing a divorce or simply separating, child support typically comes into play. Generally, a Michigan court will order one parent to pay a specified amount as his or her portion of the support needed for the benefit of the child.

Many times, it is the perfect couple that is heading for divorce

On the surface, they appear to have it all. The Michigan couple has money in the bank, a nice home, new cars and the ability to travel. They seem like the perfect couple. However, looks can be deceiving and the couple that others envy may actually be heading for divorce.

Tips for staying in touch with a child who does not live with you

Whether you have joint custody with the other parent or not, it can be difficult to stay in contact with a child who does not live with you all the time. It is so important to stay connected, because your child needs your presence, even when you do not get along with the other parent.

Spousal support depends upon a number of factors

The decision to end a marriage can be a difficult one to make. Many times, one spouse earns more than the other; sometimes one of the spouses has been out of the workforce for a number of years. In situations such as these, divorce may appear to be a financial catastrophe for the individual. Fortunately, when deemed appropriate, it is possible for alimony, or spousal support, to be granted by the Michigan courts.

Assets and liabilities part of property division

Assets and liabilities are a significant part of most Michigan divorces. The couple decides that it is time to go their separate ways and then the questions of who gets what and who is responsible for what become crucial. For some, decisions related to property division can become points of contention.
