The Brady Bunch showed the innocent ups and downs of children in a blended family. Divorced mom, widowed dad, a new family of eight, plus a flighty housekeeper and a large pet. This combo made for interesting, wholesome TV but, in real life, a blended...
The simplest way to describe the difference between child custody and parenting time is this: Child custody is who gets to make decisions about the kid; parenting time is who gets to see the kid and for how long. When you get a divorce in...
You may think that sharing a divorce lawyer with your ex will save you both money and simplify and expedite the process. A nice thought, in theory, especially if you are both looking forward to a speedy divorce and believe you can put your differences aside for the sake of the kids. There are plenty of reasons, however, that you can’t use the same Michigan divorce lawyer. (more…)
Nostalgia can be a beast, especially in the wake of a divorce. No matter how much you wanted your split from your spouse and couldn’t wait to be finished with your marriage, there will come moments when you’ll remember the good things about your former relationship. What’s worth hanging onto? What’s better to toss out? Time to figure out how to tidy up your life post-divorce. (more…)
Once you’ve made the decision to divorce, your next major decision will be selecting your Michigan divorce lawyer. It’s important for you to research your options, interview several candidates in person, and select the right attorney for you. (more…)
Divorce is painful, difficult, and sometimes it can be very expensive. Household income is reduced, debt is split, investments go up in smoke. You can, however, always find a bright side to your Michigan divorce and your finances are one place where this unexpected discovery may just happen. (more…)
Every couple has that ongoing argument. One wants to go to a movie and the other wants to stay in and watch TV. One wants Chinese food and the other wants pizza. One person likes it warm in the house and the other wants the temperature to stay low. As it turns out, that hot-cold fight may be more indicative of marital problems than anyone realized and, at its heart, that argument could lead to a Michigan divorce. (more…)
You would be hard pressed to find any divorced person who, in the throes of their worst marital fights, didn’t feel like they were going to vomit, pass out, or have a heart attack or stroke. Even the most amicable of divorces can cause health problems to develop. The stress of separating two lives, handling the needs of children, negotiating financial matters, and starting over is difficult mentally and emotionally. But research has shown that the challenges of navigating a Michigan divorce are also physically taxing. (more…)
What’s yours is mine, what’s mine is yours? Divorcing couples who have a business together not only need to settle their personal financial situation, but also their professional one. If only one-half of a couple owns a business, protecting your interests in case of Michigan divorce is crucial. (more…)
Summer means relaxation, vacation, and family togetherness. But each of these areas is fraught with disaster when a marriage is already on the rocks. There are certain types of divorces that can come during or after summer, and there are some common reasons that catapult the Michigan divorce decision to the top of the to-do list. January may be known as “divorce month,” but August isn’t far behind. (more…)
Some people feel stuck, stranded, or sidelined after a Michigan divorce. Eventually, however, you will feel free – free from marital discord, unhappiness, stress, and loneliness.

This video covers the main factors that come into play when a Michigan court is determining the amount of spousal support to be paid in a divorce case, which party will be responsible for the payments, and, most importantly, if support will be paid at all. Remember – spousal support is subjective. There is no right or wrong answer. But there are plenty of ingredients that go into making the final decision.
The length of the marriage, the ability of one or both parties to work, the age of both parties, state of health, standard of living, and fault are all considered important components in the matter of spousal support. Macomb County lawyer Jacob Femminineo goes into detail about each of these elements and discusses their relevancy in divorce proceedings.
