Pre- and Postnuptial Agreements

Before diving into divorce and custody matters, it's essential to address pre- and postnuptial agreements. Although an agreement can seem like a wrongdoing, having an agreement has many benefits, starting with communication. Before marriage, or even after, having these agreements can help protect assets, clarify financial responsibilities, and minimize potential conflicts in case of a future divorce.

Divorce in Michigan

Michigan allows for both contested and uncontested divorces.

Contested Divorce 

In contested divorces, couples are unable to agree on various aspects of their divorce, such as property division, child custody, and alimony. Contested divorces generally require the support of an attorney who can handle complex divorce cases and will work tirelessly to protect your interests and achieve a just resolution. 

Uncontested Divorce 

In uncontested divorces, both parties mutually agree on all aspects of the divorce, making the process smoother and more amicable. Uncontested divorces can be faster than contested divorces, but it’s important to get guidance from a legal team to direct you through the paperwork and make sure that your rights and interests are adequately addressed.
