“We realize how difficult divorce and child custody matters can be. At Femminineo Attorneys PLLC, we are committed to making this difficult process as easy to deal with as possible”

Oakland Township

Femminineo Attorneys PLLC has been handling the divorce cases of Oakland Township residents for over 40 years. Our divorce attorneys make regular appearances in the Oakland County courts to help our clients manage every issue surrounding their divorce case, from child and spousal support matters to child custody and parenting time.

Early on in a Michigan divorce case, status and settlement conferences occur in order to help the divorce move forward and closer to settlement. When both parties in a divorce have retained lawyers individually, the attorneys – and sometimes the soon-to-be ex-husband and wife themselves – meet with one of the judge’s referees in a status conference. A settlement conference is similar to a status conference but instead of meeting with a judge’s referee, the parties and attorneys meet with the actual judge assigned to the divorce case.

Oakland Charter Township is located in Oakland County, Michigan, and is served by the Oakland County Circuit Court and judges. The Family Division of the Circuit Court handles divorces and child custody matters and is comprised of four Circuit Court judges. Friend of the Court is also part of the Circuit Court’s Family Division and handles areas specific to domestic relations while also administering the SMILE Program for divorced couples with children.

Oakland County is one of the wealthiest counties in the Midwestern United States and is well-known for its stunning homes and private neighborhoods of primarily undeveloped areas. Oakland Township itself represents one of the highest concentrations of wealth in their “Billion Dollar Mile,” which includes over a billion dollars of property in one mile. Oakland Township has two zip codes: 48306 and 48363. Nearby cities and villages include Detroit, Goodison, Flint, Romulus, Rochester, and Rochester Hills.

  • Lessons to Learn from the “Scary Mommy” Divorce

    9 days ago

    scary mommy divorceThe original Scary Mommy, Jill Smokler, began a blog to keep a record of her days as a harried mom of three kids. Her community of fans morphed into a huge online destination for parents to dish the dirty details about their own kids and relationships without fear of judgment or repercussions. The difference between Scary Mommy and other mom bloggers? Bluntness. Telling it like it is. Recent news, however, might have people wondering if Smokler has been completely transparent after all. She recently revealed that she and her husband of 17 years are divorcing. Because he is gay. And she has known this fact for over a decade but hasn’t told anyone until now.read more

  • Is Secret Spending and Financial Infidelity Ruining Your Marriage?

    30 days ago

    financial infidelityIs there much difference between comments like, “Oh, I didn’t spend that much on your gifts,” and “My trip to the salon only cost $100” (when it was really $300)? While the intent behind spending a little extra on gifts to make your partner happy and lying by omission about a purchase to avoid a money fight are different, the half-truths still result in the same thing: Not being honest about expenses. And secret spending, in any, way, shape, or form, could tank your marriage and lead to divorce.read more

Understanding Status and Settlement Conferences in Michigan Divorce Cases

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

There are two types of conferences in a Michigan divorce case: status and settlement. Conferences such as these occur during the divorce process when both parties have retained lawyers individually.

In a status conference in Macomb County, the two attorneys – and sometimes the parties as well – will meet with one of the judge’s referees. Conferences of this nature may occur early on in the divorce process and, though some people may consider them a waste of time, they are helpful in getting the divorce case moving and that much closer to settlement.

A settlement conference is somewhat similar to a status conference but, in this type of meeting, the parties and lawyers are sitting down with the judge who, believe it or not, wants to keep his or her finger on the pulse of what’s happening with the cases on their docket and move them along.

Watch this video, featuring Michigan lawyer Jacob Femminineo, for more details about exactly what happens, what matters are discussed, and what decisions are made during status and settlement conferences in the Michigan divorce process.
