If you're headed for divorce in Macomb County, Michigan, there are some things you need to know. First, you can't file there unles you've lived in the county for at least 10 days. You also have to live in Michigan for at least 180 days before you can file at all. Keep that in mind if you're a recent transplant to Macomb County and the State of Michigan and you're planning on ending your marriage.
You may also want to pay close attention to the divorce laws in the state and county if you've been served with papers by a spouse who intends to divorce you. While some divorces are very amicable, things can quickly turn sour if there are serious disagreements about issues such as marital property and child support. Child custody can also become a sticking point, especially if the party attempting to gain custody is looking to move out of the area.
No matter what kinds of issues you're facing with your impending divorce, you need a good lawyer to help you through the process. Having legal representation will help ensure that you get what's fair to you in the divorce settlement, and that custody, visitation, and support payment issues are worked out in a way that is the best for everyone involved.
You can get all of those things on your own sometimes, but why take the risk? Especially if you're unfamiliar with Michigan law, you could be setting yourself up to really lose out both financially and emotionally. Fighting for what is rightfully yours is much easier when you have a trusted professional on your side. It can help you feel more in control of the situation, and allow you to work through the process in a way that benefits you but is also fair to the other party and protects the children. Divorce can be hard on them, so don't let your Macomb County divorce proceedings take a toll on your kids.
