When determining parental rights, courts consider the needs of a child to be of the utmost importance. Child custody is often one of the toughest areas of family law in Michigan and elsewhere, and decisions made during this period are generally considered crucial to the future well-being of a child. Whether seeking sole or joint custody, there may be several aspects to consider during this period that can impact the overall outcome.
Many couples accumulate a great deal of property and assets throughout the course of marriage. At the time, the sheer amount of property owned by a couple may go unnoticed. However, if a couple decides to part ways, they will likely have to take inventory of every asset that will be involved in the process of property distribution. Although this process can be overwhelming, it may also be crucial to the outcome of a divorce, especially in equitable distribution states, like Michigan.
No matter how you look at it, the end of a marriage is challenging. The emotional roller coaster that might ensue can be stressful and overwhelming at first, but may ease with time. The financial side, however, should probably be approached with more caution. Concerning a high asset divorce, a person in Michigan may find it beneficial to approach the financial side as if it were a business transaction.
Although sometimes sudden and unexpected, change is a part of everyday life. It could be that an individual obtains a new job that requires relocation. While some may find it less difficult to uproot their lives, others could find the process more challenging. Proper protocol must be followed for a custodial parent in Michigan who is seeking to move out of state or more than 100 miles away from the original location agreed upon in the child custody agreement.
