When you're dealing with a divorce in the Royal Oak area, you need legal representation. It doesn't matter whether you're the one planning to file, or whether you have been served with papers, it's important to protect your interests. That can include financial interests like houses, cars, and bank accounts, but can also mean protecting your children. If your kids are still young and living at home, you'll need to make some decisions about where they will live and who will care for them.
It's very important to make sure your children are getting a safe place to stay, and enough child support to have what they need. At the same time, if you don't know the Michigan laws you could end up being ordered to pay more child support than you should have to. That would be unfortunate, and something that could be hard to correct in the future once it has been established. The best way to avoid those kinds of problems is to get an attorney right away and make sure you work with him or her from the beginning all the way through the process.
Then you won't have the fears of not understanding the law and perhaps ending up owing more than you should or not getting to spend the time with your children that you really want to. While there are divorces that are completely amicable all the way through, many of them do not turn out that way.
Just keep in mind that you need to live in Michigan for at least 180 days before you can file for divorce, and each county or city may also have laws on how long you need to live there before a divorce can be filed. By talking with a good attorney, you'll know your legal rights and responsibilities, and you'll be better prepared to handle any of the issues that might surround your divorce as you move through the process.
