Have you been served with divorce papers in Wayne County, Michigan? Are you planning on filing for divorce there? If so, you need to work with a good lawyer to make sure your interests are being protected. Keep in mind that you have to live in Michigan for 180 days before you can file for divorce in that state. You also have to live in Wayne County for at least 10 days before you can file.
The assets you need to protect can include marital property like houses and bank accounts, but can also involve issues like custody and child support. If you have children, it's particularly important that you work with an attorney who can help you through the process. Children can have a difficult time with divorce, and so can adults. However, there are ways in which it can be made easier.
While you may have an amicable relationship with your spouse, and the divorce may have been a mutual decision, that doesn't mean you will always agree on everything. With that in mind, it's very important that you focus on getting a fair deal in the process of the divorce. You don't want to end up not seeing your children as much as you would like to because you didn't understand what you were agreeing to at your divorce hearing. You also don't want to be asked to pay more than you can afford in child support, or lose out on other marital assets.
While you may feel comfortable working through the process on your own, it is surprising how quickly things can change. An understanding of the law is necessary to make sure your case is handled fairly, and a good attorney will explain the law to you so you're able to make the best decisions throughout the proceedings.
