Deciding whether to stay or to leave when children are involved

People in Michigan who are struggling with whether or not they should try to stay married for the sake of their children should think about several things. There are reasons that might support going ahead with divorces and others that might warrant further consideration.

Understanding the changes in Michigan's medical marijuana law

With ever-changing marijuana laws across the country and in Michigan alone, it can be confusing to understand what is legal or illegal. Medical marijuana is legal in Michigan and just underwent several changes due to a new law. A lot of people are wondering how many plants a patient or caregiver can grow.

Economic conditions could reverse slowdown in bankruptcy filings

The number of bankruptcy filings fell 1.8 percent in September 2017 compared to September 2016. Overall, there were 790,830 bankruptcies filed by Michigan residents and others through Sept. 30. There were 805,580 bankruptcy cases in the prior year. According to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, this was the lowest total over any 12-month period since June 2007. However, the decline in overall bankruptcies in the period between September 2016 and September 2017 was the lowest in a one-year period since 2011.

Divorce can be a positive choice for some couples

Michigan couples may look avidly for a way to avoid a divorce and repair a marriage that is no longer intact. In some cases, the partners are parents and want to preserve a shared home for their children. In other cases, they may simply be dedicated to counseling or making changes in order to keep a commitment that they intended to last for life. These changes can make a real difference for many couples, who then go on to find renewed happiness in their marriage. However, for others, divorce may be the easier and happier option for both partners' future happiness and romantic success.
