If you're looking for help with family law in the Pinckney, Michigan area, keep in mind there are several niche sections within that area of law. You'll want to locate an attorney who can help you with your specific concern, and who has experience helping others in your particular situation. You won't need to travel far. Pinckney is a great town, and home to nearly 2,500 people.
Getting a divorce in Pinckney can be difficult emotionally, but there will be plenty of people who can sympathize with your plight. An attorney can help you file the proper paperwork, and can make sure you've asked for anything that you specifically want - such as the car or a particular portion of funds. While many divorces are amicable, that's not always the case. It's important to have a lawyer on your side.
When you're dealing with a divorce, you may also have questions about spousal support and property division. It's natural to be uncertain about those things, especially when it comes down to what you're entitled to. Don't let your spouse take things that are rightfully yours. Having an advocate on your side can make all the difference. Spousal support isn't as common anymore as it used to be, but it's still used in some cases. Property division should be fair for both parties, and should include everything from the house and cars to the dishes and knickknacks.
Another serious issue in family law is child support. If you're going through a divorce or other separation, you'll want to make sure that issue is worked out and incorporated into the final agreement with your spouse, along with child custody concerns. Generally, one parent has custody and the other has visitation. The parent without custody pays child support.
There can be extenuating circumstances, though, and it's best to work with a family law attorney who can help ensure you and your children are being treated fairly. Child support issues can sometimes bring up concerns about paternity, which may need to be addressed before the case can be resolved.
For some people, there are other types of family law issues that also have to be addressed. If you're about to get married, a prenuptial agreement may be a part of the discussion. In order to make sure the agreement is fair - and legally binding on both parties - you should work with an attorney. If the prenup is ever needed, you don't want to find out it wasn't valid in the first place.
Annulments are also handled by family law attorneys. Most people who have decided to end their marriage will be required to divorce, but some will qualify for an annulment. This is usually in the case of fraud. For example, if a person was coerced into marrying someone under false pretenses, or if the person was already married, the one who was deceived may be able to file for an annulment. Qualifying can be confusing, so it's best to retain the services of a good family law attorney in Pinckney to help you navigate the legal system.
