Michigan Divorce Law
Divorce cases are often difficult and emotionally taxing for all parties involved. It is important to have an attorney who is sensitive to your needs, and who can formulate a plan to protect your rights and assets. Usually both parties suffer financially as a result of divorce. Watch out for an attorney who brings frequent motions, and who manufactures conflicts, for the sole purpose of justifying a larger bill. Please pick your divorce lawyer carefull
lt" Divorce Law
Michigan has enacted a no fault divorce law, pursuant to which residents of Michigan can obtain a divorce without establishing that the other party did something wrong. A trial court can grant a divorce if it finds that "There has been a breakdown in the marriage relationship to the extent that the objects of matrimony have been destroyed and there remains no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved." Please note that issues of "fault" may remain relevant to the division of the marital estate, and that aspects of "fault" may come out in the event of child custody litigation.
To file for divorce in Michigan the plaintiff must have been a resident of Michigan for at least 180 days, and must have resided in the county where the divorce complaint was filed for at least ten days prior to filing. The plaintiff can also file a divorce based upon the defendant's meeting those residency requirements. There are narrow circumstances under which the 10 day county residence period can be waived.
If you are concerned that your spouse may be filing for divorce in another state or jurisdiction, you should consult with an attorney about whether it would be appropriate for you to try to file a divorce in your own state. In many circumstances, the divorce will be decided in the state where a complaint for divorce is first filed, which can result in significant difficulty and expense to a spouse who resides in another state.
Under normal circumstances, a trial court in Michigan must observe a sixty day "cooling off" period before granting a divorce. While it is possible for a trial court to find circumstances which justify waiving this period, in most cases the full waiting period will be observed. The waiting period is longer in cases involving child custody.
When "Fault" Matters
A trial court may consider "fault" issues when dividing the marital assets, or when assessing spousal support (alimony). Please note that under most "fault" circumstances, the trial court will not dramatically change the division of assets. With most marital estates, you will need to consider whether a five or ten percent difference in the property division justifies the expense and conflict associated with attempting to prove fault. There is often a better financial return in making sure that all assets are located, properly valued, and included in the marital estate, as opposed to trying to prove fault.
Division of Property
The first consideration for a court in evaluating the division of the marital estate is the determination of which portions of the estate constitute the parties' separate property, and which is part of the marital estate. By way of example, inheritances are usually considered to be the separate property of the spouse who received the inheritance. Similarly, a business or asset owned prior to the marriage may be considered to be a separate asset, depending upon how it was treated during the marriage. At times, an item of property might be deemed to be "separate property", while the appreciation or interest earned by the asset is considered to be a marital asset. At other times, a parties separate property at the onset of the marriage may be deemed to have merged into the marital estate. Also, a trial court may invade one spouse's separate property when necessary to provide for the adequate post-divorce support of the other spouse
Can Anyone Help Me To Find The Recipe For Nigella Lawsons Ultimate Chocolate Cake Please?
My Daughter Is Desparate To Try It And I Just Cant Find It Please Help!!
Chocolate Fudge Cake Recipe courtesy Nigella Lawson
Show: Nigella Bites
Episode: Comfort Food
For the cake:
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup best-quality cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup corn oil
1 1/3 cups chilled water
For the fudge icing:
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, minimum 70 percent cocoa solids
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
For the cake:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and line the bottom of 2 (8-inch) cake pans.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugars, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl or wide-necked measuring cup whisk together the eggs, sour cream and vanilla until blended. Using a standing or handheld electric mixer, beat together the melted butter and corn oil until just blended (you'll need another large bowl for this is using the hand mixer; the standing mixer comes with its own bowl), then beat in the water. Add the dry ingredients all at once and mix together on a slow speed. Add the egg mixture, and mix again until everything is blended and then pour into the prepared tins. And actually, you could easily do this manually; I just like my toys and find the stand mixer a comforting presence in itself.
Bake the cakes for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a cake-tester comes out clean. Cool the cakes in their pans on a wire rack for 15 minutes, and then turn the cakes out on the rack to cool completely.
For the icing:
Melt the chocolate in the microwave - 2 to 3 minutes on medium should do it - or in a bowl sitting over a pan of simmering water, and let cool slightly.
In another bowl beat the butter until it's soft and creamy (again, I use the stand mixer here) and then add the sifted confectioners' sugar and beat again until everything's light and fluffy. I know sifting is a pain, the 1 job in the kitchen I really hate, but you have to do it or the icing will be unsoothingly lumpy. Then gently add the vanilla and chocolate and mix together until everything is glossy and smooth.
Sandwich the middle of the cake with about a quarter of the icing, and then ice the top and sides, too, spreading and smoothing with a rubber spatula.
Should I Use A Real Estate Lawyer?
Countrywide Wont Help With My Remod, Attorney Says His Success Rates High?
Some attorneys are having success in getting people modifications. A lawyer will probably put together a more effective argument for the modification that you can on your own. Documents from a lawyer always get a lender's attention more than a borrower can. If Countrywide denies the modification, the lawyer will have an excellent case for fighting any attempt Countrywide makes to foreclose on the property - and Countrywide knows this.
If the guy helped someone you know and trust, I'd say give it a try.
What Exactly Does A Family Court Lawyer Do And What Are The Quailifactions Needed To Become One≫?
Family court lawyers handle family law matters like prenuptual agreements, divorces, adoptions, custody issues, child support matters, etc. Some folks do only family law and other lawyers do general law and some family law.
In order to be any kind of lawyer, you need a law degree. Normally you get a four year undergrad degree in anything and then go to three years of law school (full time, longer if you are going to night school or part time). Go to an ABA accredited law school (there are a few that are not) so that you can sit for the bar exam of the state where you want to practice. Normally it is easier to pass the bar exam of the state where you went to school so if you know you want to practice in a certain state - Delaware for instance - try to go to a law school in that state b/c they will teach you some local law (that you are not going to learn if you are studying in, say, Arizona) and b/c you will also make job connections thru clerking etc. Once you pass the bar exam for that state, you are admitted and can practice in any area of law that interests you. Some states, like Florida, have then a specialized exam you can take to demonstrate proficiency in a special area (like family law) but you have to be practicing quite a while to be able to sit for it.
There are too many lawyers, but not enough good ones and if it is what you want to do, do it.
You might want to clerk or work in a family law office (or volunteer to work for a family law judge) for a summer. Family law can mean dealing w/ nice people when they are at their worst and many people find that field very stressful. Good luck
Can Any One Define Legal Rights?
For My Citizenship Homework We Have To Define A List Of Words And I Cant Find The Definition To Legal Rights Anywhere! Can Someone Help Me To Define It....
≫..≪ Thanks Xx
Legally guaranteed powers available to a legal entity in realization or defense of its just and lawful claims or interests (such as individual freedom) against 'The whole world.' Legal rights (like laws) affect every citizen, whether or not the existence such rights is publicly known.
egal rights (sometimes also called civil rights or statutory rights) are rights conveyed by a particular polity, codified into legal statutes by some form of legislature (or unenumerated but implied from enumerated rights), and as such are contingent upon local laws, customs, or beliefs. In contrast, natural rights (also called moral rights or unalienable rights) are rights which are not contingent upon the laws, customs, or beliefs of a particular society or polity. Natural rights are thus necessarily universal, whereas legal rights are culturally and politically relative.
Referals On A Good Aggressive Family Law/Custody Lawyer For Fort Bend County?
Can Anyone Refer Me To A Good, Aggressive Custody Or Family Law Lawyer For The Fort Bend County In Texas?
I don't know about Fort Bend but when my son was looking for a good aggressive attorney we interviewed several. Most came across as sleazy salespeople but there were a few who actually seemed to care. Find an attorney who specializes in family law, the longer the better. Also, word of mouth is very important. Do some research on the internet and talk to people who have had successful outcomes and get the name of their attorney. Good luck.
