Rochester Hills Divorce Attorney

Rochester Hills Divorce Attorney

Divorce is a journey that many couples are forced to endure, and facing the dissolution of your marriage is never easy. It can help, however, to know that you are not alone in this endeavor. Further, having a better understanding of the divorce process can help you become better prepared to navigate the path forward, and an experienced Rochester Hills divorce attorney can help you with that. 

Your Divorce Terms

Yes, your divorce is singular to your situation, but Michigan divorce laws apply to everyone. Some issues you need to resolve include:

  • The equitable (or fair) division of your marital property
  • Your child custody arrangements 
  • Child support
  • Alimony (or spousal support)

Negotiating Terms

Ultimately, you and your divorcing spouse will need to come to an agreement on each of the terms that apply to your divorce. If you are unable to do so, you will need to turn to the court, which will make the pending determinations on your behalf. This does not, however, mean that you and your soon-to-be-ex need to be in perfect harmony with one another (which is rare). In fact, you have a variety of negotiation tools you can explore before you need to turn to the court, including:

  • If you’re fairly close on terms (or on some terms), you might be able to negotiate effectively between yourselves (with your respective divorce attorney’s experienced counsel guiding you). 
  • If you’re further apart on one or more terms (or you are unable to negotiate directly with one another), your respective divorce attorneys can negotiate for favorable terms on your behalf.
  • If you reach a standstill and are unable to move forward, mediation is an option. At mediation, a professional mediator who is a neutral third-party will help you explore what your best options are likely to be, what the court will likely determine, and potential compromises that you may not have considered to date. Ultimately, mediation cannot order terms that you are not willing to sign off on, but if you do agree on terms, they are binding. 

Your Post-Divorce Future

The terms of your divorce will serve as the infrastructure for your post-divorce life – and will set the stage regarding both your financial and parental rights. In other words, they are extremely important and are worth investing the time and effort necessary to get them right, which an attentive Rochester Hills divorce attorney can help you do.
