Keego Harbor Family Law


Obviously, when two people take the sacred vows of marriage, they're doing so for a lifetime but they sometimes realize that they have grown apart over the years. There are other factors that factor into a couple deciding to terminate the relationship through the process of divorce. In Keego Harbor, Michigan, it's important to understand the divorce laws prior to filing.

To be able to get a divorce in Keego Harbor, Michigan, one of the people must have lived in the state for at least the last 180 days or 6 months. Speak to your partner and achieve a contract on all the problems possible. The more problems you and your partner can establish, the quicker your divorce will go. If you cannot achieve a contract on any issue, the Judge will select for you, after a hearing, where you will be able to present statements and other proof to back up your justifications. Conditions will need to be decided include:

Property splitting

Getting a divorce partners will need to split all of their property, including furniture and family goods, bank accounts and investment records, automobiles and real estate.

Debt splitting

When splitting debts, think about which person will be better able to pay the debts, if there is any property connected to the debts that one of the people will be keeping, and how to divide things properly, not necessarily equally. For instance, if one person earns much less than the other, he or she might receive more property, and less debt to be able to balance the responsibility.

Child legal care and visitation rights

If you have children who are minors, you will need to pick which parent they will live with, known as the lawful mother or father, and when the other parent, known as the non-custodial mother or father, will have visitation rights.

Child assistance

Keego Harbor, Michigan uses the earnings stocks design when identifying your children. This design considers the earnings of both people, and awards support for your children depending on a statistical formula which separates assistance in accordance with the paying person's percentage of the total earnings of the both parents. To be able to determine the right quantity of assistance, you may utilize the complimentary "your children calculator" offered by Michigan.

Spousal Support

If there's a difference in earnings, or one parent hasn't worked for a long period of time to perform family and child raising responsibilities, the Judge may believe, or the parents may believe, spousal assistance is necessary. This means that one parent will pay the other a certain quantity each week, to be able to help assist the receiving person.

There are other issues that must be determined but typically, dividing property, establishing child custody, child support and spousal support are the main points that have to be determined and hiring a lawyer to represent you is one of the best decisions you can make. A lawyer can make sure you get the proper amount of support and or visitation rights. Janelle Zawadieh provides Legal Counsel for Keego Michigan.
