As a Divorce Attorney, I know the hardship divorce can have on all involved. Call now for your free phone consultation: (734) 282-0200.
Michigan has no-fault divorce. You don’t need a reason such as abandonment, etc. to get a divorce or have a need for a divorce lawyer. You know when it’s over. Is it? If the answer is yes – call Bo! If the answer is maybe – please consider marriage counseling. Truly, the “grass is not greener on the other side.” Fortunately, I have reasonable rates and I accept credit cards!
In a short-term marriage you generally walk out with what you walked in with and half the appreciation of all marital assets.
WHAT SHOULD A DIVORCE ATTORNEY HELP YOU CONSIDER?
In a long-term marriage you generally split everything – including equity in the house, pensions, 401(k)s and debts. Is there a large difference between you and your spouse’s income? If so, the Judge will probably award payment of some COBRA health benefits (worth up to +$18,000) and alimony! Maybe even the attorney fees.
With that kind of money at stake it would be foolish to hire the cheapest attorney that you can find, or worse – use a divorce kit! “Penny wise – Pound foolish” still applies!
There is such a great variation in what is possible – it is extremely important that you call and get an individualized answer to your situation. I have seen a million different solutions. It is likely that I have seen yours.
