“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”

Waterford

Femminineo Attorneys PLLC proudly serves the township of Waterford in northern Oakland County, Michigan, aiding residents of the area in settling their divorce cases.

Spousal support can be a heated issue in divorce cases, and the questions surrounding spousal support do not always have one straight answer. Unlike child support which is calculated objectively, spousal support is a subjective matter. The circumstances of each individual Michigan divorce case affect the way spousal support is determined and paid.

Divorcing parties typically want to know two main things: How much spousal support do I have to pay? And how long do I have to pay it? There are many factors that comprise the spousal support formula. Spousal support, also known as alimony, has only one constant: There is no right or wrong answer in how to determine spousal support. Now, the parties involved may feel that there is indeed a “right” and a “wrong,” but it’s ultimately up to the judge assigned to the case to determine what they think is appropriate for the situation at hand.

Hiring the right divorce attorney will mean they argue and negotiate for you to get a fair settlement. You will also want the services of an experienced divorce attorney to explain the ins and outs of spousal support modification – modification is one of the biggest matters involved in alimony determination. There are modifiable and non-modifiable arrangements and there are dangers in both choices that must be taken into consideration when considering the final judgment in a divorce.

The Charter Township of Waterford, Michigan, is served by the 51st District Court. The Court processes between 20,000 and 25,000 cases annually and is separated into four primary divisions: traffic, civil, criminal, and probation. Waterford, Michigan, divorce cases are heard by the Family Division of the Circuit Court of Oakland County, Michigan.

Waterford has four zip codes: 48327, 48328, 48329, and 48330. Nearby cities include Pontiac, Rochester Hills, Royal Oak, Farmington Hills, Birmingham, and Troy.

  • 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.

Understanding Income Withholding and MiSDU in Michigan

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

In the state of Michigan, in a divorce case involving child support, it is required by law that an income withholding order go into effect and be entered into the final judgment of a divorce. The employer of the party who will be paying child support is ordered to deduct the determined amount from the party’s paycheck and send it to the Michigan State Disbursement Unit (MiSDU).

While it may sound like a hassle, MiSDU actually makes life easier for the divorcing parties. They disburse child support payments to the other party, they track payments that are in arrears, and so on. Watch this video featuring divorce lawyer Jacob Femminineo as he addresses common financial concerns that arise when it comes to child support, income withholding, and the duties of MiSDU.
