Located in Oakland County in Michigan, Wixom boasts a population of nearly 13,500, according to the 2010 census. Of that population, there are 3,382 families residing in 5,725 households. A hub for manufacturing and production, the city is located close to Detroit.
Prior to its shuttering in 2007, the city was home to the Wixom Assembly Plant. This plant manufactures Ford products, such as the Ford GT and Thunderbird, as well as Lincoln products such as the Lincoln Town and the LS. Other industries the city is home to include Discraft, a flying disc manufacturer, Trijicon, a manufacturer of night gun sights and NGK, a spark plug manufacturer.
Like many of the other suburbs in the Detroit area, Wixom has been negatively affected by the downturn in the economy. This, unfortunately, often negatively affects the families that rely on the income from these plants. Losing a job frequently leads to tension as unexpressed concerns come to the forefront. This stress often leads to couples divorcing.
Even under the best of circumstances, an amicable divorce is often just not possible. There are so many other issues that are brought up when a couple is having marital problems. These can include sticky situations like paternity issues, and whether child support is even warranted in cases such as this. It is times like these that a lawyer who works with families can be of great help in sorting out the details and reaching a satisfactory conclusion.
While many parents do not have any issues with providing child support to those children that are the result of the union, those same couples often have a difficult time deciding how to reach a satisfactory conclusion to child custody issues as well as those that detail the division of property. It can help to consult with an attorney that is able to help with compromising on matters like which items of property can be let go in exchange for other items that have more value.
Many couples try to circumvent these issues from occurring with the inclusion of a prenuptial agreement. While this type of agreement is often a good beginning when it comes to protecting those assets that are brought into the marriage, there are often times when they are not as ironclad as the parties thought. For example, many localities stipulate that the marriage must be a certain length in order to trigger particular events, such as a percentage of earnings from a business or the ability to collect spousal support.
The intricacies of a divorce are many. An attorney of family law is a crucial partner in ensuring that the interests of the parties involved are protected. In some cases, the dissolution of the marriage results in an annulment. Knowing if this is an option, though, is a matter that is best left to a lawyer who has handled cases of this nature previously.
