Disputes over frozen embryos in a divorce

Michigan couples who have undergone IVF treatments and who subsequently decide to divorce may have frozen embryos in storage. While there are many laws in place dealing with child custody in a divorce, few address the issues of frozen embryos. Furthermore, while they may have signed an agreement about preserving the embryos, there may have been few or no provisions dealing with what might happen in a divorce.

If you use social media during your divorce, do not make these mistakes

You might have seen the research showing a connection between divorce and social media use. According to researchers, the more frequently you are on Facebook, the higher risk of divorce you have. Practically everyone talks about limiting their time on social media to improve face-to-face relationships. However, what you may not know is that more lawyers are using evidence from Facebook and other social media sites during a divorce case to show that a parent is unfit, hiding money or being dishonest.

Working together to benefit the children after a divorce

When Michigan parents are going through a divorce, it is important that they agree to put the best interests of the children first. However, it can be easy for parents to lose sight of this. As such, it is for the best if some parents can work together to come up with a plan to ensure that the children come first regardless of what happens during the actual divorce.

Making sure that people are divorcing for the right reasons

Every January, divorce filings spike around the country. This is partly due to the fact that some people want to wait until after the holidays are over to do so. Others may be triggered to file because of conflicts over finances and other stressors that commonly happen during the holidays. No matter the reason that Michigan residents want to divorce, it is important that they consider doing so carefully so that they might avoid making some mistakes.

Keeping electronic communications safe during divorce

When a Michigan couple heads for divorce, the process can cause anger and resentment especially if there are accusations of infidelity or other wrongdoing. Even if neither party is accused of anything sordid, it is still becoming increasingly more common for family law attorneys to use electric communications and online activity as potential evidence during the divorce process. This may include emails, posts on social media accounts and text messages.

When parents use their children as pawns after a divorce

Although some Michigan families are able to work out a system that allows everyone to continue to have strong relationships following a divorce, other former spouses are unable to set aside their differences.
