The divorce process can sometimes be a lengthy and difficult thing to go through. However, this is no reason to be deterred. It is something that many couples in Michigan go through, and although it can be exhausting, that is a small price to pay for a happier future. It is unhealthy to remain in a relationship where you are unhappy. Divorce gives you the chance to begin a new chapter of your life, away from each other.
Of course, there are a number of things that need to be settled during this process, many of which are related to financial matters. This can include the division of assets, decisions regarding who will keep the house and even allocation of debts. If you have any children, decisions will also need to be reached regarding their custody and any support payments to be paid.
The amount of alimony to be paid and by who depends on several factors, but is largely governed by your relative incomes and financial circumstances. However, it may be possible to avoid a court decision on this if you and your spouse are able to come to an agreement about it between yourselves beforehand. Any matters that you cannot agree on will be for the judge to decide.
