A common misconception is that the financial status of a husband can reliably predict divorce. If it is too low, the theory goes, a couple is more likely to divorce, presumably because the husband is not living up to the expectation of being a breadwinner. As is often the case, however, this stereotype paints an incomplete picture.
Parents of 10 in a state outside Michigan are fighting for legal guardianship of one of their two foster children. The 4-year-old is being sent to live with a Native American tribe. The Indian Child Welfare Act was enacted in 1978 to help preserve the heritage of Native Americans, but has reportedly created an obstacle in this particular family law situation.
Many Michigan residents are currently planning their weddings. Some will have lavish affairs while others keep to more simple traditions. Regardless of economic status, geographic location or whether a particular ceremony will be conducted by a Justice of the Peace or religious minister, many soon-to-be spouses choose to seek family law assistance to draft prenuptial agreements before tying the knot. Such an agreement is not required, but can be beneficial in various ways; thus, many couples choose to go this route before heading to the ceremony.
