When it comes to celeb divorces, the most contentious splits are usually identified as such because of money fights or big payouts.

Whether you call them messy, ugly, or expensive (emotionally or financially), the following divorces are four of the worst in recent memory. (more…)
It was hard to miss one of the most dramatic entertainment-related stories of the summer: Katie Holmes files for divorce from Tom Cruise. The subtitle? Even though the couple’s main residence was in California, she filed for divorce in the state of New York, establishing residency there for the sole purpose of divorcing in a territory where she felt most comfortable and where she felt the courts would be on her side.

Motions can be brought before the court to deal with any and all issues surrounding a divorce, from child custody to child support, parenting time to bill payment. Essentially, if two parties can’t come to an agreement on a major issue, they can file a motion asking the court to decide for them. This can happen during the divorce process and after the divorce has been finalized.
In this video, divorce attorney Jacob Femminineo talks about the jurisdiction of the judge in a divorce case and why this is important to understand when it comes to motions. He also spends some time on what happens with motions specifically in Macomb County.
Fast fact: Motions are the busiest days in court. Watch this video to find out the best days to file your motion in Macomb County, Oakland County, or Wayne County.
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.
