Making the Decision to Divorce in Michigan

Jan 17, 2017

Anyone that is married knows that life is about ups and downs. There are many reasons why you should not consider remaining in a marriage. Only you can ultimately decide if you should do so or if you should move on. Yet, no one can make this decision lightly. There are many factors involved and, even if television programs make it seem simple and like no big deal, it is a complex process requiring careful attention. Should you get a divorce?

What To Consider


Before making the decision to file for divorce, talk to your personal attorney. Hiring a divorce attorney is important because this person will work to support you, solely, in the process. You should never share your attorney with your soon-to-be-ex-spouse. When you meet with your attorney, talk about every aspect of the process including what you can expect. Some things to bring up even at this initial meeting include the following:

  • What will happen to your children after and during the divorce process? You'll need to consider custody arrangements, child support, and your child's specific needs.
  • Determine what type of property you will potentially lose in the process. Often, assets are to be sold so that the funds from those assets can be split.
  • Determine what may happen in terms of supporting yourself after the divorce. Will your spouse need alimony or support? Will you be able to find a job that fits your current skill set if you decide to divorce?

It is very important to understand that divorce is a long process and one that will be filled with emotions and difficulties. The good news is that with the help of a Michigan divorce attorney, you'll be better able to make wise decisions for yourself and about your future because you will have all of the information and guidance you need throughout the process. Making the right decision becomes easier to do then.
