When you find yourself with divorce papers in your hand, it can be a hard thing to take. The same is true if you decide to file for divorce. Living in Birmingham, Michigan means you have to follow the laws there throughout your divorce proceedings. For example, you have to live in Michigan for 180 days before you can legally file for divorce. A lot of people don't know that, and are frustrated that their proceedings have to wait. The best way to know the laws and make your divorce as smooth as possible is to get a good attorney to represent you.
Finding a Birmingham, Michigan attorney isn't difficult, but you want only the best. You need a lawyer who will listen to you and explain the laws as they relate to your case. That way, you can work with your attorney to make decisions about your future, instead of feeling left out while someone else makes those decisions for you. It's important to know what you want when it comes to marital asset division, child support, and related issues, and it's equally important to understand what the law will and won't allow.
There are many ways to have an amicable divorce, but things can quickly turn bad if there are problems or areas where you and your spouse can't agree. If that happens, you don't want to be stuck trying to muddle through without any legal representation whatsoever. For the sake of your own protection, and to protect the interests of any children you have with your spouse, you should hire an attorney at the beginning and allow the attorney to work through the process with you. Then you'll get what's fair when assets are divided, and you'll also be able to reach an agreement on issues like child custody and child support. Both of those are very important not only to you, but to your children, as well.
