On Behalf of | May 19, 2022 | Divorce |

When you’re a Michigan resident who’s going through a divorce, there are many issues that you will often need to address, and some of them can be very difficult to deal with. Whether you have children or not, some of the key challenges that you can expect in divorce include the following.

Determining child custody and visitation

If you have children, you will need to determine who will have primary custody and how much time the other parent will be scheduled to spend with them. Coparenting effectively is what’s best for the children, so it helps if you and your spouse are still on cooperative terms.

Dividing assets and debts

Determining how to divide your assets and debts between you and your spouse can also be a difficult process as you will need to consider what is fair. You may also need to make sure that you are able to financially support yourself after the divorce.

Financial stability

You may also need to make sure that you are able to support yourself financially as well as your children. This can be a challenge, especially to someone who is used to being part of a two-income household.

Emotional issues

Divorce can be a very emotional time for you and your children, and you may need to seek out support from friends and family. You may also want to consider therapy to help your family work through these feelings.

Making the decision to divorce is never easy, but it is important to consider all of the key challenges that you may face. By doing so, you can be able to decisively take the right steps to remain prepared for what lies ahead.
