Standing up to a gaslighting parent

In Oakland County, Michigan, and other areas, an ex-spouse may have been the victim of gaslighting. The term is an urban slang derived from a 1940's movie of the same name, which depicts a jealous and devious husband that manipulates his wife into thinking she is mentally unstable. For example, he goes to the attic to dim the gaslights and then claims she is seeing things.

How to handle the holiday season after divorce

Parents in Michigan who get a divorce might need to plan for how they and their children will spend the holidays.

One of the first steps parents should take is putting the focus on the children instead of their own feelings.

Sweep targeting individuals owing child support held

On Nov. 27, news sources in Michigan reported that the Macomb County Sheriff's office in partnership with the Macomb County Friend of the Court would be conducting a week-long enforcement sweep targeting local residents with outstanding child support warrants.

Sources indicated that authorities try to conduct the warrant sweep on an annual basis.

How to protect current and future assets

Unfortunately, there are some common misconceptions about prenuptial agreements that could prevent people from writing a simple contract that might protect their assets in the future. Michigan couples that choose not to have a prenup because they think it represents control or implies they'll get divorced later might be making a mistake. The parties should take a look at their individual finances and if necessary, take steps to protect them.
