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.

Does Anyone Know Any Good Immigration Lawyers ?
I Am A Us Born Citizen And Recently Got Married In The Uae. I Am Looking For A Good Immigration Lawyer That Can Help My Husband Migrate Here. I Could Have Filed The Paper Work Myself, But My Case Is A Little Confusing. So I Need The Help Of A Lawyer To Represent Us.
Have Any Of You Had Any Good Experiences With Any Immigration Lawyers? Any To Recommend? I Am In Los Angeles.
Thank You! :)
Immigration is not a legal, but an administrative process. You don't need a lawyer for this, but you will need a pen to fill out some forms. The supporting documents you would have to get yourself anyway, and I doubt you want to pay an attorney $2K or more for having his office helper filling out some simple forms for you.
It's really very simple.
As a US citizen, you can petition the US government for your husband's immigration. You do that from anywhere in the world by filing an I-130 petition with the USCIS. It costs $420 and takes about 5 months to be processed.
Thereafter the petition goes to the National Visa Center (NVC) in New Hampshire and they will contact you for the mandatory Affidavit of Support.
Since the US government needs to make sure that no foreigner becomes a public charge, every intending immigrant needs a sponsor. The form for this is I-864 and you'll need to make at least $18,912 after taxes, assuming you have no dependents, such as children, to qualify.
What they want to see is your latest US income tax return. As you know, Uncle Sam taxes worldwide income, so I hope you have filed your US taxes every year since you started making money. If your income is not sufficient, you will need either a co-sponsor, or you can make up for it with assets at the rate of 1:3.
After that's been taken care of, the entire package goes to the US consulate in Abu Dhabi, and they will ask for paperwork, a medical, police reports, and schedule an interview. If that goes well, he'll receive CR-1 visa (married less than 2 years) or an IR-1 visa (married 2 years or longer) and has thereafter up to 6 months to "activate" it. You cannot move back to the US after him, so you'll need to move earlier or at the same time, as the whole idea behind this immigration thingi is family reunification.

Do I Need A Lawyer To Start A Small Business Or Can I Pay Legal Forms Online And Do It Myself?
Please, Only People With Experience. I Don'T Need Information, I Have Plenty.
I think you SHOULD do it yourself as long as it is a "simple" business. You will learn a lot in the process and it gives you a great feeling of accomplishment having done what most people will NEVER have the courage to do. All you need is a business license (about $100 from your county usually), and a company bank acount (after you get your business license) after that, success is completely in your hands. (assuming you don't need licenses, permits, or are affected by other regulations. The forms you need are always available from your state and county websites so you should be able to have your new business up and running in no time very easily. GOOD LUCK
