Michigan divorce law: Divorce facts

A lot is said about divorce, with some estimates indicating up to 50 percent of all married couples end up getting divorced. That is a fact many divorce law attorneys disregard as simply not true and greatly overexaggerated -- as are many other "facts" out there. This week, this column will go over some actual facts regarding marriage dissolutions that some Michigan residents may be interested in knowing.

Michigan bankruptcy law: Can't pay off your debts?

Numerous Michigan residents are among the many Americans who are drowning in debt. When it all becomes too much, it is normal to question how one should address the issue. Thankfully, this is not a problem that one has to figure out all alone. A bankruptcy law attorney may be able to help.

Where does bird nesting fit into Michigan family law?

Whenever a parent has to go on a business trip, the other parent is there to care for the children during his or her absence. When it is the other parent's turn to go on a trip, the roles will be exchanged. That has given families nationwide, including in Michigan, the concept of birds nesting. Although this is not a custody or parenting option included in statutes or family law, it has proved to be ideal for families who want to spare their children the upset of moving between the homes of divorced parents.

When divorce and bankruptcy law comes together

When people are young and in love, they may never contemplate they will get a divorce or face overwhelming debt from which they cannot escape. Sadly, for those in Michigan and elsewhere, the reality is that many couples experience financial hardship that leads to disputes. As they spiral deeper into debt, their differences become irreversible, and divorce seems to be the only solution. However, it will not resolve the financial problems, many of which may be marital debts for which both spouses will be responsible. This is where the bankruptcy law can bring relief.
