The end of a marriage may be painful or it may be a welcome relief, but no matter how you feel about getting divorced, you do not want to go into it unprepared. You may think you know enough—or you may be so desperate to get out that you don’t care about the details—but either way, if you don’t educate yourself about the process in Michigan, you could be setting yourself up to be taken advantage of. Do yourself and your children a favor and request a free copy of my Michigan divorce guide, The Divorce Book. You will find everything you need to know about separation and divorce—all for free!
What My Book Covers
While other divorce attorneys may hold on tightly to their specialized knowledge, I am happy to share what I know to help you understand what is involved in a divorce so that you can get what you and your children need out of it. Don’t get me wrong—this is not a do-it-yourself guide. Instead, it explains the complexities of everything that must be considered when getting divorced, including the following:
- Steps to take before filing for divorce
- Why you need to hire an attorney
- Moving out of the marital home
- Emotional, financial, and legal aspects of divorce
- Child custody, child support, and parenting time
- Right to visitation of children by third parties such as grandparents
- Domestic violence
- Related issues such as separation and annulment
Even more important than understanding these basic issues is knowing what to avoid when you are considering filing for divorce. I discuss the following five mistakes people make that can work against them in a divorce:
- Physically harming or threatening a spouse or child
- Leaving the marital home without children if you hope to get primary custody
- Bringing a romantic partner into the marriage
- Badmouthing your spouse to your children
- Using social media to complain about your spouse
When you request my free book, you will find out how these actions can harm you when you file for divorce.
