Bingham Farms is a village located in Southfield Township, which is in Oakland County, Michigan. As of 2010 when the census was conducted, there were just over 1,100 people calling it home. If you're one of them, you know what a great place it can be to live and raise a family.
Unfortunately, families don't always work out the way people plan. Sometimes, divorce becomes a necessity. If you're facing a divorce, it's important that you seek out the services of a family law attorney who can help you move through the process.
One of the issues you'll face in your divorce is the division of property. Whether you have houses, bank accounts, and cars to divide or you're renting and don't own a lot of material possessions, it's still important that the settlement is fair to you and your spouse.
Agreeing on a property division would be the best way to handle things, but that doesn't always work out. Rather than leave it up to the judge, getting an attorney can help you reach an agreement you're satisfied with.
The same is true for child custody, child support, and spousal support. In some cases, child support issues can also bring up arguments and concerns about paternity. Until those are settled, the divorce won't be able to proceed. When you and your spouse are working out issues surrounding the children, make sure you put any other problems aside and put your kids first.
An attorney can make suggestions that will help you and your spouse work as a team for the sake of your children, so that everyone gets through the divorce as easily as possible. Making things easier on everyone is important, as there's already so much stress when going through a divorce.
Spousal support, which is generally called alimony, is not seen as commonly today in divorce cases as it used to be. However, that doesn't mean there aren't cases where people are awarded this kind of support. It's a matter of numerous deciding factors, so it's important to work with an attorney who can determine whether you should ask for alimony or whether it would be better to avoid doing so.
If both you and your spouse work, you generally won't qualify for spousal support. Every case is different, though, and a legal professional is the best choice when it comes to getting your questions answered.
Prenuptial agreements can help with some of the issues that come with a divorce, but only if you had one that's deemed valid. Take your prenup to your attorney and have him or her take a careful look at it. Then you'll know whether all or part of it can be used in the divorce filing.
Another area for family law attorneys is annulment. You may qualify for one if you were defrauded or coerced into getting married. If you find that your spouse was already married at the time of your wedding or he or she lied about some other serious, material fact, talk to your attorney about your concerns.
