Michigan divorce law: When she makes more than he

Currently, more women in Michigan and elsewhere are the breadwinners in their homes compared to years past. While this may not be the standard, the results of a recent survey show that it is the case for 25 percent of all couples. When she makes more than he and they want a divorce, she may be the one that has to pay spousal and child support. A divorce law attorney can help either party achieve a divorce settlement that is fair.

Michigan family law: Cop in trouble for lying in family court

A police officer in another state has found himself in trouble with the law for allegedly lying in family court to get a better child support deal for himself. It would have worked had it not been discovered while he was being investigated for another issue. Michigan residents dealing with certain family law issues may be tempted to lie to help their cases, but this man's case is proof that it is just not worth it.

Do not wait too long to take advantage of bankruptcy law benefits

When struggling financially, it can be difficult to ask for help. There is a certain level of shame associated with it for some reason. Some Michigan residents may view it as a personal failure. In reality, there is no shame in seeking financial assistance when it is needed. In fact, seeking help sooner rather than later is strongly advised, especially if one is considering utilizing bankruptcy law for its benefits and protections.

Always mind what you say to police

Any interaction with police, no matter how casual, may produce evidence against you. It is very important to understand this whenever you speak with police to help you watch what you say and avoid potentially life-altering consequences.

Michigan family law: Want to relocate with your kids?

You are either in the process of getting divorced or you already have. You are either working out a custody arrangement or you already have one in place. Whether you are in the throes of divorce or you are already done, if you find that you need to relocate and want to take your children with you, getting approval to do so may not be as easy as you think. Michigan family law for child custody matters is written in a way that makes it very difficult for one parent to take the children and move too far from the other parent.
