Filing For Divorce

Divorce is never something you plan on, but it doesn’t have to be complicated or drawn out. If you are considering a divorce, reach out to your family law attorney in Michigan.

 

Divorce can be a very emotional event for both parties. The family law attorneys at All Law PLLC can help you establish reasonable expectations and expedite the process while also acting as a buffer between parties. 

 

Your divorce lawyer can focus on your case so you can move on with your life. Representing yourself could put you at a disadvantage if you have a busy schedule or don’t fully understand family law. A Michigan judge will still hold you to the same standard as a board-certified family lawyer. If your case involves custody, child support, spousal support, division of property, or more—you may need some legal help.

 

Divorce involves gathering paperwork, preparing documents, and detailing your assets. Our family law attorneys are with you at each step of the process to ensure that everything is properly in place when you file for divorce. 

 

Michigan is a “no-fault” divorce state, which means anyone can request a divorce with no explanation needed. Still, there are a few requirements for filing a legal divorce in Michigan, including:

 

  1. There must be an assertation of the breakdown of the marriage.

  2. Divorce must be filed at a local court.

  3. One or both parties must have resided in Michigan for at least half a year prior to filing.

 

Your spouse will be served with a Summons along with other documents that pertain to your case once you file for divorce.

 

Our experienced Michigan family lawyers serve our clients by handling all aspects of the divorce filing, and will represent you in case any problems arise.  

Child Custody and Visitation Cases

The child’s best interest determines Michigan state child custody cases. The judge will review the circumstances and facts of a case to determine an arrangement based on their findings, which can include:

 

  • The child’s best interest

  • The capacity of either party to provide the child with affection, love, guidance, education, and stability

  • Parental domestic environment

  • The permanence of any preexisting stable home environment and the child’s wishes to maintain continuity

  • The mental health of both parties

  • The physical aptitude of both parties

  •  The child’s preference

  • Domestic violence issues

  • Parental ability to cooperate and agree on issues concerning child’s welfare

 

For many parents, maneuvering custody and a visitation schedule can be frustrating and challenging at the best of times. However, it’s essential to remain rational when making long-term decisions that are best for you and your family. Our compassionate and understanding child custody lawyers help you meet your goals to attain the best possible conclusion for all.

 

The Michigan family law attorneys at All Law PLLC help you set reasonable goals, provide negotiation strategies, and keep your children’s wellbeing at the forefront. 

 

Each child custody case is unique, and we ensure that your parental rights are as protected as your child’s.

Parenting Time Schedule

Parenting time means the time a parent is allowed to spend with their child following a divorce. It can vary based on many variables and can cause strife between parties.

 

At All Law PLLC, we can explain the child custody process along with parenting time laws in Michigan. We can help advocate for you during custody hearings. 

Child Support 

The Michigan Paternity Act helps determine paternity. If paternity has been established, that means the biological parent is responsible for paying child support, which can include:

 

  • Health insurance

  • Medical bills

  • Birth expenses

  • Child care

  • Education and school supplies

  • Clothing

  • Food

  • Shelter

  • Personal items

 

Our family law attorneys can help in cases involving child support enforcement and the resulting legal issues.

 

Child support payments are typically calculated using the Michigan Child Support Formula during a divorce and collected via the Friend of the Court in Michigan. 

 

Our experienced child support lawyers can work with you to get the support that you need. In addition, we will advocate for an equitable payment plan if you are paying child support.  

 

No matter the reason for a divorce or legal separation, the most important considerations are the needs of any children involved. Children have the right to financial support from both parents. Our Michigan family law firm can help support you during this time. 

 

At All Law PLLC, our divorce and child custody attorneys are well-versed in the details and technicalities regarding Michigan family law. We appreciate how complex these cases can be, so we aim for transparency with our clients. We go over all the details so you can make a well-educated decision regarding long-term family law matters. 

Michigan Family Law Discovery Process

The discovery process in Michigan family law cases is known as fact-gathering. There are many ways for either party to access facts about the case or obtain discovery. The discovery process allows either party to gather as much information to settle the case or proceed to trial. 

This discovery process can be used to access information relevant to spousal or child support, including work history, income, and more. The process is also used to gather information to be used in child custody and parenting time cases.

Appealing Family Law Matters

 

Deciding whether or not to appeal a divorce or other family law matter can be difficult and costly. Understanding what types of orders can be appealed and what the timeframes are is hard as well. 

An accomplished Michigan family lawyer can help guide you through the appellate divorce process and other types of family law matters that can be appealed, such as:

  • Spousal support modification

  • Enforcement of parental rights

  • Child custody issues

  • Property division during a divorce

  • Parental visitation

  • Child support modification

 

Knowing that not every ruling is subject to appeal is critical. While you have a right to appeal some judgments, only the Appeals Court can allow others to be appealed. 

 

In Michigan, you can appeal, by right, any final orders in divorce judgments and child custody matters. Meaning you can convince the Court of Appeals judges that you can assert your legal argument that an error was made.

 

If you are successful with this step, then you can legally file the appeal.  A professional Michigan family law attorney can clarify whether an appeal is possible in your specific circumstances.
