Northville, Michigan can be a great place to live and raise a family. Sometimes, though, that perfect family life you had planned doesn't work out. If that's the case, you may decide to file for divorce. Keep in mind that you need to live in Michigan for at least 180 days before you can file for divorce there. That and many other laws often aren't common knowledge, and not knowing the laws can hurt you in the divorce proceedings.
There's a way to avoid that, though. You can hire a good attorney to represent you. No matter which side of the divorce proceedings you're on, it's a good idea to have proper legal representation. That way you don't have to worry about whether you understand the law and you won't be second-guessing the decisions that you make. You can let your lawyer handle the important issues that you'll have to deal with, but your input will still be important in making final decisions that will impact your life as you go through the divorce process.
It's not just your future. If you have children, you need to be sure you're clear on who will have custody of them, what visitation rights the other party will have, and how much child support will need to be paid. Without a lawyer, you could lose out in any or all of these areas. You want to protect your children as much as possible, whether you intend to continue to live in Northville or you're planning on moving somewhere else.
Either way, it's very important that your children are helped and supported throughout the process. Divorce can be hard on children, and the more amicable you can make it the better it will be for everyone involved. While it can be difficult to keep it civil, having attorneys handling the process can make things operate more smoothly and also help expedite the process.
