There is no greater gift you can give than to open your home to a child. There are many routes to adopting a child in Michigan. If you know the child, either as a stepparent or as a family friend, it will be important for you to follow court procedures for your stepparent adoption or direct placement adoption.
In Michigan, courts will make all decisions in light of the "best interests of the child." This includes establishing support payments to ensure that each child's basic needs are are provided for. The Michigan Child Support Formula is the guideline that the court will use as a guideline to determine what payments will be made and which parent will make them. It is important to have an attorney who understands this process to make sure payments are figured correctly and fairly.
There are two kinds of nuptial agreements: prenuptial and postnuptial. Most people understand what a "prenup" is - it's the "who gets what" agreement made before a marriage. A prenuptial agreement can reduce the stress before a marriage by taking the focus off of your assets and putting it onto your relationship. In other words, it's like saying, "This is what will happen to our stuff if we split up someday. Unfortunately, it could happen. Let's just worry about us now to make sure it doesn't."
