Michigan natives Michael Moore, Kathleen Glynn to divorce

A complaint filed in a Michigan circuit court shows that documentary director Michael Moore intends to divorce his wife, producer Kathleen Glynn, after nearly 22 years of marriage. Both natives of Flint, Michigan, Moore and Glynn were wed in 1991 and have collaborated on a number of films. The divorce complaint asks a judge to bar both parties from transferring or selling marital assets prior to the case's completion.

Tips for couples therapy

Thousands of Michigan couples visit marriage counselors, hoping that professional therapy will help them overcome their problems and preserve their marriages. However, only a portion of these couples is able to resolve their issues and ultimately choose to remain together. Divorce is a natural step for husbands and wives that have grown further apart or developed serious communication problems, potentially saving both parties from a dysfunctional or unhappy marriage. Struggling Michigan couples may wish to pursue couples therapy in an effort to rekindle their relationships, but they should also be aware that divorce might be in both of their best interests.

Michigan man wins custody of murdered daughter's child

A Macomb County Circuit Court judge recently awarded custody of 12-year-boy to his 63-year-old grandfather after the child's mother was fatally shot on a Detroit freeway, deciding not to grant custody to the boy's father. Michigan courts typically choose to preserve the parental rights of a child's biological parent rather than transfer custody to a grandparent or other relative, but the father's criminal history and a number of other factors prompted a different decision in this case.

Preparing to divorce a controlling spouse

Some Michigan couples enjoy the privilege of an easy, amicable and largely stress-free divorce that results in a minimal amount of fighting in and out the courtroom. However, many prospective divorcees have considerable challenges, particularly those who plan on ending a marriage to a controlling spouse. Pursuing divorce under such circumstances can be intimidating and highly stressful, but proper preparation and legal assistance from a qualified attorney can ease this process.
