When a marriage ends, it's important to pay close attention to the property division issues. That is especially true in a challenging economy, such as the one we've had in Farmington Hills and throughout Oakland County in recent years.
Marriage involves a lot of sharing. Two lives become intertwined in so many ways that the privacy lines can become blurred. But a recent Oakland County case is a stark reminder that e-mail accounts are one aspect of a marriage that are best kept separate.
If your marriage has gone bad, divorce is an understandable way to move forward. It allows you the chance to start over, after the property has been divided up and custody arrangements resolved for any minor children you may have.
Child custody decisions are inevitably emotional. It could scarcely be otherwise, precisely because relationships with children are involved.
