Planning summer vacations after divorce

Many Michigan families look forward to summer vacation but the summer months can sometimes be stressful for divorced parents. Many people may want to travel with their children and make fun memories. It is a good idea for parents to discuss summer vacation while school is still in session so they can make a plan that works for everyone.

What can damage your chances of gaining custody?

Michigan parents like you are often put into very precarious situations when dealing with child custody issues. It can get personal quickly when you end up in these battles, and the decisions you make can have a lasting impact on whether or not you are viewed favorably by a judge when it comes time to decide who will get the children.

How can the Hague Convention help you get your kids back?

If you are a divorced Michigan parent whose foreign-born ex-spouse takes your children overseas for a visit and fails to return them, this obviously is a serious situation. Unfortunately, parental abduction represents a not uncommon phenomenon, and when the abduction is to a foreign country, it makes for an even more serious and complicated situation.

How often will I see my child after a divorce?

As parents in Michigan like you grow and move on with your lives after a divorce, it's very possible that the arrangements you initially set up will no longer work for your needs. Lisa Stern, Michigan Family Law Attorney, is here to explain how these arrangements can be changed after a divorce has already happened.

What are key points of consideration in a parenting plan?

In Michigan, parents need to create a parenting plan after they get a divorce. This allows for both you and your ex-spouse to continue having a presence in your child's life, which benefits everyone. Lisa Stern, a Michigan family law attorney, is here to guide you through the process of creating your own individual parenting plan.

Understanding stepparent adoption

At the offices of family law attorney Lisa Stern in Michigan, we know that stepparent adoption can be a great benefit to everyone in a blended family. When you adopt your spouse’s children from a previous relationship, you are showing them how much you love them and that you want to be their forever parent. In addition, becoming the other legal parent of your spouse’s children gives you all the rights and privileges of biological parenthood, making it easier for you to participate in the medical, educational, religious and social decisions so crucial in their lives.

How custody is decided when parents cannot agree

Michigan courts recognize that divorce is an emotional period for everyone in the family. They also know that matters can become heated between parents who are soon to be ex-spouses and sometimes, agreeing on anything seems impossible. That is why family law is structured to uphold the best interests of the child.
