In Michigan, many couples know that marriage is not always forever and that no matter how close you are to your spouse, sometimes things can simply change. You may argue, your interests may change or life pressures may simply cause you to become distanced from each other. Whatever the case, sometimes divorce is the healthiest option. There is no reason to remain in a relationship where you are unhappy. Divorce gives you the chance to begin anew and make the most of your future.
Of course, there are still a few things that need to be considered, such as the possibility that one of you will need to pay alimony to the other. You may also have to figure out how you will handle the custody of your children and the division of your property.
In a recent case, a drummer and his wife have filed for divorce after seven years of marriage. The couple have a prenuptial agreement, which includes their decision on alimony payments. While the drummer has specified in his divorce documents that he would like his wife to adhere to the terms of that agreement, it is possible that she might challenge it. If so, there is a chance that the amount of alimony to be paid could increase.
If you are considering divorce, or you are concerned about alimony, you might benefit from the advice and support of an attorney. He or she can oversee the divorce process and may be able to suggest the best way to handle any disputes that might arise. With the right guidance, you can pursue a fair and favorable settlement as you look toward a fresh start and a new chapter of your life.
