Getting The Divorce Support You Need

Last updated on August 9, 2022

Separating from a spouse comes with challenges. It doesn’t matter if the decision to divorce is fresh or is long overdue; it can be challenging to process the logistics of it all, let alone the emotions. Fortunately, our legal team at Kuiper Kraemer PC has the tools and knowledge to help you take each step confidently and efficiently.

It’s important to understand that no two divorces will look the same. There will be friends or family members you know who have awful stories about their separation. But planning with our attorneys guarantees that you’ll have someone rooting for you in every aspect of your divorce, including asset division, alimony, and child custody and support. On top of straightening out the legalities of your case, we also aim to keep your morale up or help you cope from start to end.

Backing You Up Through Your Whole Journey

Knowing what you are getting into can help release some of the stress you are already experiencing and help you feel prepared for any surprises.

Here are some common divorce questions we can help you answer:

  • What type of divorce is right for me? If you and your spouse’s ability to work together is still strong, it’s worth considering collaborative divorce or divorce mediation. And if not, a traditional route in a courtroom is still valid, and we can help you keep matters amicable.
  • How do Michigan laws impact property division? Like most states, the courts in Michigan follow an equitable distribution law. So instead of tallying up the value of assets and dividing them evenly between each party, a judge will split up assets in a way they see as fair.
  • Are my kids going to take my divorce with grace? When kids are part of a family going through a divorce, we can supply pointers for breaking the news of your divorce to your little ones and seeking a custody arrangement that suits the whole family.
  • Will I be able to afford single living? It’s no surprise that you will go from a one- or two-income household to living off one or no income. However, you might not know that you could be eligible for alimony, child support or both.

There will, of course, be other odds and ends that come up on your road to a fresh start, but we vow to lead your family to a solution with the perfect amount of guidance and the least amount of uprooting.
