Being served with divorce papers or thinking about ending your marriage in Livingston County, Michigan can be very stressful. It's important to find a good lawyer who's going to be able to help you through the entire process. You want to make the right decisions, especially if there are children involved. Issues surrounding divorce can include how to divide marital property, who's getting custody of the children, how much child support will have to be paid, whether alimony is going to be requested, and even paternity concerns. If you don't have a good lawyer, you could really end up losing out, and not just financially.
It's important to find a Livingston County lawyer who is going to specialize in matters of family law, so you have the highest chance of seeing the best results in your unique situation. Divorce is stressful, even if you and your spouse are in agreement. Make sure you're careful about where you place your focus. It's not just about getting divorced, but about making sure you get what's fair to you and to your children. The more you agree on, the easier the process will go and the more likely you'll be to get a good outcome.
Talk to your spouse about who will get custody and where the children are going to live, along with visitation rights for the non-custodial parent. Work with your spouse to divide the money and other assets, as well. If you can come to an agreement on most things with the help of your lawyer, the judge in your case will most likely make your agreement official. Without that agreement, the judge may rule in a way that you don't feel is the best outcome for your case, but you'll still have to abide by that ruling. Legal representation is the best way to protect your interests. Contact the Law Offices of Jannelle Zawadieh today for a FREE consultation.
