Another Real Housewives couple gets a divorce

Michigan residents may recognize reality TV star Porsha Williams from her role on the "Real Housewives of Atlanta." Or Michigan residents may instead recognize her ex-husband, Kordell Stuart, from his time in the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The couple just ended a bitter divorce and the most recent news apparently says that Williams did not get much from the marriage.

Advice for grandparents who choose to get a divorce

No matter how old two spouses are or how long they have been married, either one may have thoughts about ending the marriage. Michigan residents may know the concept as "graying of divorce" when couples who are over the age of 50 decide to call it quits on their marriage. The divorce rate in this particular demographic has increased more than two-fold since 1990.

Importance of handling financial threats during divorce

Certain situations and circumstances bring out the best in people. Unfortunately, divorce may not be one of those times. No matter how much Michigan couples try to be mature and level-headed, emotions run high during divorce and civility may go right out the window.

Keep children's well-being at the forefront of divorce

The reality is that many marriages end. The end can be seamless and amicable, or it can be contentious and drawn out. A Farmington Hills divorce attorney may be able to help couples create a more amicable process, while reaching fair and equitable results in the divorce settlement. Nonetheless, some Michigan couples still have a hard time seeing eye-to-eye in a divorce. In these cases, it is important to keep the fighting and controversy away from any children because divorce can have a negative impact on children.

Suggestions for parents when discussing divorce

The legal process of divorce falls under the umbrella of family law for a reason. Dissolution of marriage is, in a way, dissolution of the current family structure and the adoption of a new family structure. Numerous parties may be affected by the split, in addition to the married couple. Children of the parents are impacted; even extended family members and close friends may feel the strain of a divorce.

Women consider keeping or changing last name after a divorce

It's a very accurate description to refer to a divorce as a process. There are varying steps and stages. First, one party must file for divorce. Next, the parties must figure out how to divide the property and marital assets. If children are involved, child custody and child support must be decided. Couples may reach a divorce settlement on their own through an out-of-court process like mediation or they may need the assistance of the courtroom. Either way, a Michigan judge must approve the final settlement.

Convicted Detroit contractor now getting a divorce

Every family has its share of troubles. Sometimes these troubles lead to discord and even divorce. Other times, families may stave off divorce until the other issues subside. The wife of the now infamous Detroit contractor Bobby Ferguson is opting for the former as she has filed for divorce just prior to her husband's sentencing on his criminal charges. Ferguson could face up to 28 years in prison on racketeering charges.

Men needs advice too when it comes to divorce

Although divorce may affect spouses differently, it would be trivial to say that one spouse is always more affected by the split. But for some reason, it seems that much more attention is paid to women going through a divorce and the emotional and financial struggles that women face. Men may hide their emotions and concerns but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be addressed as well.
