How to Deal With Custody
If you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement regarding child custody, the court will do it for you. Our advice to you is to speak with your spouse about living arrangements and schedules for parenting time. In most cases, Michigan divorce courts consider the best interests of the children and will award joint physical custody to the parents, giving them each equal rights to their children. The courts want to make sure that the minor children have a continuing relationship with both parents.
Most Michigan divorce cases will award alimony. Alimony payments are made in specific amounts and paid over a specific period of time.

In Michigan, There’s no special definition under Michigan law for an “uncontested divorce”. It is simply an uncontested divorce used to describe a situation in which a married couple have agreed to divorce and there are no disagreement between them on any issues involved in the divorce, such as property division, child custody, spousal support, or child support. A Michigan uncontested divorce may be the best way to resolve the matters regarding custody of the children, support and distribution of property.
Contested divorce in Michigan is the type in which the spouses cannot arrive at an agreement on one or more issues in order to conclusively terminate their marriage. When spouses cannot arrive at an agreement, even with the assistance of their legal counsel (if any), they must approach a court to adjudicate their dispute. Contested divorces are commonplace now, especially since there are so many different issues to resolve during the course of terminating a marriage. The typical hot button issues requiring resolution during the course of a contested divorce include sensitive topics such as custody of the children, support and distribution of property.

What You Should Know Before Filing For Divorce?
Adultery - Adultery usually has no bearing under Michigan law on the final outcome of the divorce.
Assault - If a spouse assaults or otherwise injures the other spouse during the marriage, a claim for damages can be stated in the complaint for divorce.
Alimony - Not all alimony is permanent. Courts in Michigan look at many factors, including the length of the marriage, the age and health of the parties, and future earning capacity, before deciding if alimony is appropriate, and for how long.
Family Assets - Courts in Michigan view a stay at home spouse as contributing to the family's assets. As such, if your spouse's assets whether real , personal property or business has increased in value during the marriage, you may be entitled to a some percentage of that growth upon divorce.
