How To Cope With Separation: Useful Information That May Be Helpful For You

This book addresses different issues relating to Michigan Family Law, especially separation, divorce, and mediation. It explains the point separation is a legal action filed in the same manner as a divorce, and through the same court system as a divorce. The Judgment would set forth a binding allocation of assets and liabilities and establish custody, parenting time and support. It provides a good piece of advice on divorce and elaborates how an experienced family law attorney can ensure that all laws and procedures are followed properly in your separation. You will need assistance for everything from filing the paperwork, attending the court date, to drafting the final Judgment of Separate Maintenance. It refers to mediation as a non-binding settlement discussion. Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution, meaning it is a way for the parties to meet with a third party and reach an agreement as opposed to conducting an expensive and drawn out trial.
