What you should know about modifying a divorce settlement

Before a divorce can be finalized in the state of Michigan, the couple or a court-appointed judge must create the divorce settlement. While the terms of the settlement may be applicable to you and your spouse’s lives at the time the divorce is finalized, things change. At the Law Offices of Lisa Stern, we know that there may come a time when the details of the settlement no longer apply to you and/or your former spouse. In this case, a post-divorce modification may be necessary.

What happens when parents fail to pay child support in MI?

Whether you have already filed for divorce in Michigan or you are in the primary stages of filing for divorce, the non-custodial parent will be ordered to pay child support for the children who are involved in the case. Child support is designed to bridge the financial gap that is often created during a divorce when parents separate and move into different living situations. Not only does it help the custodial parent make ends meet, but it ensures that your children are exposed to the same quality of life that they would have been if you and your spouse had stayed together. In some cases, negligent parents do not make their court-ordered child support payments. As a result, the child fails to receive the financial support they need and deserve.
