Michigan divorce law: Settlement enforcement -- the Hogan case

Hulk Hogan has been divorced from his former wife for quite some time. Unfortunately, the two are still fighting over certain terms of their divorce settlement. While most Michigan residents do not have millions on the line when they battle over divorce law, they do still expect their exes to live up to the final settlement terms. Failing to abide by agreement terms seems to be the big issue in the Hulk Hogan case.

Michigan bankruptcy law: Gen Xers drowning in debt

Money problems affect adults of all ages. Sometimes, no matter what one does, debt just cannot be overcome without a little help. Currently, Gen Xers in Michigan and across the country are said to have the most nonmortgage debt than any other age group. Bankruptcy law may be able to help individuals in this age group regain control of their financial situations.

Michigan bankruptcy law: Calculating a Chapter 13 payment amount

Michigan residents who do not qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy but who would still like to benefit from a bankruptcy filing may pursue a Chapter 13. Like Chapter 7, unsecured debts can be discharged with an approved Chapter 13 petition. The big difference is that with Chapter 13 bankruptcy law, filers are required to make payments to creditors for a set period of time before debt discharge will happen.

Michigan family law: Mental health can affect child custody

Millions of Americans suffer from some level of mental illness. With treatment, it is possible for many of them to live relatively normal lives. One fear that some individuals struggling with mental health issues have is losing custody of their children if their marriages fall apart. Thankfully, whether they live in Michigan or elsewhere, family law courts will not deny custody simply based on a history of mental illness.

Even if you don't drink, you can face impaired driving charges

If you believe that you are immune from impaired driving charges because you don't consume alcohol, you are sadly mistaken. Individuals who use street drugs, as well as those who take any number of prescription or over-the-counter medications, can also wind up facing impaired driving charges under Michigan law.

Bankruptcy law may help those living paycheck to paycheck

Living paycheck to paycheck is something that many Michigan residents from all different career backgrounds do. If any unexpected expenses arise, it can put them in a hole from which they may struggle to get out of. When that happens, bankruptcy law benefits may work in their favor.
