Farmington Hills Divorce Attorney

Divorce can shake everyone involved to their core, and it is not hard to lose your way. The emotional rollercoaster that divorce often becomes can make it difficult to concentrate on the bigger picture. Fortunately, an experienced Farmington Hills divorce attorney can help you get where you need to be. 

How It Works

When it comes to divorce, no two are ever exactly alike, but the basic terms of divorce that must be negotiated between couples never change, and they include (as applicable):

  • The division of marital property
  • Child custody arrangements
  • Child support 
  • Alimony / Spousal support

If you and your divorcing spouse are able to reach an agreement on each term that applies to your divorce, the court is likely to accept your terms and incorporate them into your final divorce decree. It is important to note that you and your soon-to-be-ex are not expected to spontaneously agree on each and every detail involved in your divorce – far from it. In fact, you have wide-ranging options that include:

  • You and your divorcing spouse can negotiate amongst yourselves (with your respective divorce attorneys’ careful guidance).
  • Your respective divorce attorneys can enter into negotiations with one another – on behalf of each of you.
  • You can take any terms that remain unresolved to a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as mediation, in which a professional mediator will help you, your divorcing spouse, and your respective divorce attorneys explore options that you might not have considered – within the context of what is likely to happen if your case goes to court. 

If you are not able to hammer out divorce terms that you are both willing to sign off on, the court will need to address those that remain unresolved. 

Your Divorce Priorities

Going into your divorce with a scattershot approach – and attempting to grab whatever you can – is understandable (divorce often feels chaotic), but it is unlikely to do you any good. Ultimately, you and your dedicated divorce attorney will want to discuss your divorce priorities. For example, if your goal is to upset your children’s lives as little as possible by remaining in the family home with them as the primary custodial parent (while your ex has a parenting time schedule), you will strategize very differently than if your children are adults and you are completely ready to move on. When you distinguish between those issues that are deal breakers for you and those that are less concerning, it can provide you with the insight and the leverage you need to move forward into your post-divorce future with increased peace of mind and purpose.
