Relocating with a child after a Michigan divorce

After a divorce, people in Michigan may want to move for any number of reasons, such as to be closer to family, to pursue job opportunities or just to achieve a fresh start. If they are parents, however, they may not be able to just make the decision, pack up their belongings and load up the trucks.

How alcohol consumption increases risks of drowning

If you are planning to take your boat out on the water, you might want to think twice about indulging in alcoholic drinks. Not only can intoxication impair your ability to navigate your boat off the shores of Michigan, but it increases the risk of drowning. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, one in five boating deaths results from alcohol and 70 percent of drowning deaths during water recreation activities involve alcohol as a factor.

Making it through a divorce when you are deployed

While a divorce can shake your life regardless of your situation, if you are currently deployed and your spouse in Michigan informs you of his or her plans to divorce you, that kind of information can be incredibly distracting and discouraging when you are far from home. Fortunately, there are steps that you can take that may help to prevent unnecessary stress and effectively keep you from losing too much. 

Modifying parenting time or custody orders

After the dust settled and your Michigan divorce was complete, it may have taken time for your child to adjust to the new living arrangements, including splitting time between different residences. Over time, the schedule that once met everyone’s needs now adversely affects one or more parties. At Vandervoort, Christ & Fisher, P.C., we often assist clients with necessary modifications of a court order.
