Family law attorneys are essentially involved with every part of the law that involves family disputes. A family law attorney may be involved in spousal support or in child adoption. Family law attorneys can arrange for annulments and organize paternity testing to ensure that you receive all the legal protection in family court that you need.
Fowlerville is a small Livingston County village of 2,000 residents with a strong family atmosphere. Not only is it rife with family events such as the Fowler Fair and Christmas in the Village, but almost 40 percent of all the households in Livingston County are married couples.
Parents that are currently going through a divorce may need a family law attorney to explain to them how some common things such as child support and child custody are usually determined. Child support is often governed by a worksheet that takes into account how much each parent makes and which parent the child will be most often with. It's important to note that child support is not a penalty; the goal of child support is to take care of the child in the fairest possible way.
The income levels in Fowlerville are a little higher than average, with a median household income of over $40,000 and a poverty level of under 10 percent. The more assets that are involved within a marriage or a household, the more complex issues such as spousal support, property division and child support can get and the more important it becomes to proactively protect your assets.
If a parent is pursuing child support -- or contesting the amount -- this will usually need to be done in family court and a family law attorney will be able to help. Likewise, if child custody is an issue, the family law attorney will be able to help you learn more about te process and getting a favorable result for your child. There are many factors that aid a judge in determining child custody, and it can be a difficult process to navigate if you and your ex-spouse are not on the same page.
Apart from child issues, a family law attorney is often essential in helping you split your marital property. Property division can be quite an extensive experience, especially if there are disputes between you and your ex-spouse. Spousal support is also another difficult issue; while Michigan is a no fault state, it still does consider fault when dividing marital assets. A lawyer may be able to advise you further.
If you're interested in avoiding issues of divorce and annulment entirely, you may want to contact a family law attorney to draft a prenuptial agreement early on. A prenuptial agreement operates as a guideline for who would get one during a divorce, and it protects both spouses because it lays out very clear rules and guidelines. A prenuptial agreement is usually exceptionally easy and fast to draft. Call today at 248-356-0600 and let the experts at JZ Law help with your Family Law case.
