“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”

Wixom

Residents and neighbors of the city of Wixom, Michigan, often turn to the lawyers of Femminineo Attorneys PLLC to handle their divorce cases. Our divorce attorneys are very familiar with the Oakland County courts, making regular appearances to help our clients settle their divorces and deal with matters such as child support, spousal support modification, and parenting time.

Motions are brought before the Oakland County court when a client needs to deal with any issue relating to their divorce. When two parties are unable to agree on a central issue in their Michigan divorce, a motion can be filed requesting that the court settle on the matter instead. We help our clients file motions during the divorce process as well as after the divorce. Motion days are the busiest days in court and we will ensure that you file at the right time in Oakland County. The jurisdiction of the judge in a divorce case is also integral to a motion; it’s important for you, as a divorcing party in Wixom, to understand a judge’s role in your case.

The city of Wixom, Michigan, is served by the 52nd District Court – 1st Division, which is located in Novi, Michigan. The court has exclusive jurisdiction of civil matters regarding claims that not exceeding $25,000, including landlord/tenant eviction proceedings, land contract forfeitures, controversy, and garnishments. The court also hears cases assigned by the Circuit Court regarding civil matters with claims exceeding $25,000. Traffic violations involving civil infractions and misdemeanors are the responsibility of the District Court, and the court has exclusive jurisdiction over all criminal matters with a maximum penalty not exceeding one year in jail.

Wixom has a zip code of 48393. Nearby cities include Novi, South Lyon, Farmington Hills, Waterford, Livonia, Pontiac, Canton, Garden City, and Berkley.

Why Jurisdiction Matters in Michigan Divorce Cases

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

When referring to Michigan divorce cases, the term “jurisdiction” means one thing – which court will be hearing your divorce case. In the state of Michigan, all divorce cases are held in the circuit court of the county in which the person who has filed for divorce lives. This may seem simple enough, but there are two crucial details that can affect how timely, costly, and inconvenient a divorce may be (beyond the obvious).

In this video, Michigan divorce lawyer Jacob Femminineo explains the two most important numbers to remember when it comes to jurisdiction in Macomb County and beyond. Learn about the laws of establishing Michigan residency before legally filing for divorce, as well as the 10-Day Rule for county residency. And find out why, if you’re at all suspicious about a soon-to-be-ex-spouse’s “vacation” or “visit” to another part of the state, it’s in your best interest to file for divorce before they do.
