Solutions For Same-Sex Divorce Challenges
The dissolution of a marriage is not easy, but when you have a skilled attorney with significant family law experience, you can meet the legal challenges that a divorce brings. At Quist Law Firm, PLLC in Grand Rapids, we get favorable results for our clients through the more efficient and less stressful approaches of mediation and collaboration. Here are some of the issues we negotiate solutions for during the divorce process.
Division Of Assets
Division of assets for same-sex couples could be complicated if they were partners for a significant time before marrying. Although Michigan law on divorce states that only the property and debt acquired during a marriage is eligible for division, we can pursue an equitable division of assets and liabilities.
Child Custody And Visitation
Our state recognizes two types of custody, legal and physical. While legal custody refers to decision-making concerning the child’s upbringing, physical custody pertains to where the child lives. In addition, parenting time arrangements allow the child to spend time with both parents.
Children are entitled to the same standard of living they had when their parents were still together. We advocate for fair child support arrangements that take into account the amount of time the children spend with each parent.
The Power Of Skilled Legal Counsel
Though we have a reputation for success in high-conflict divorce cases, resolving differences respectively with the help of legal and mediation professionals is preferable, especially if children are involved. If complications arise, you have the assurance of having the optimal litigation representation. We can explain how to use collaborative law in your divorce.
