Wolverine Lake Family Law


A village with a population of 4,312, according to 2010 figures, Wolverine Lake is located in Commerce Township. Wolverine Lake has some of its own governmental entities, such as a city hall and police department. Michigan is known as the 'Wolverine State' and that is also how this village acquired its name. Within the 1.68 square miles that make up this village, there are 1,733 households with 55.7% of those households containing married couples who are currently living together. In addition, 31.4% of these households reported having children living within them in 2010.

Combining Households

When a couple decide to marry, they are not simply agreeing to live together. There is a concerted effort to combine households and to bring a continuity to the lives of each of the people who used to be single and that are now married. Fording this new life together is often exciting, even as it presents challenges that the participants often never expected. Divorce is often the furthest thing from the minds of these people who are newly married.

And Baby Makes Three

Many couples express their desire to add to their family. They see the addition of a baby as the perfect way to add a miniature person who is a seamless combination of both the mother and father. Unfortunately, with so many marriages ending in divorce, adding children to the mix brings on an entirely new level of complexity and contention to an already traumatic event. Once paternity is positively established, it then becomes a matter of determining the two related matters that are so often hot button topics when a couple is in the middle of a divorce: child support and child custody.

Property Woes

With entrepreneurship so popular these days, having a family run business is not out of the question. If it was started while the couple was married, its future raises surprising, and often difficult, questions about what happens to each person's share of the business and how those shares should be divided. These questions fall under the umbrella of family law.

Prenuptial Agreements

For those people who have a significant amount of property before they marry, they might try to protect their property with a prenuptial agreement. Depending on what type of prenuptial agreement the couple signed prior to typing the knot, your lawyer can use this document to your advantage when it comes time to divide the property.

Is Annulment a Possibility?

Having a marriage annulled is a rare occurrence that only happens with a tiny fraction of the couples who seek to get a divorce. Unless one member of the couple is either engaging in fraud or is not legally able to be married, an annulment is not typically granted in Wolverine Lake.

Spousal Support

Spousal support is often a cause for many fights among couples who are divorcing. The partner who is being petitioned for spousal support may feel resentful that they might have to continue to support their former significant other for the immediate future.
