Parenting Time
Possibly the single most important provision in a Judgment of Divorce or Order of Filiation is parenting time. Parenting time is the schedule of when the children will spend time with each parent. While parents often fight bitterly over physical custody labeling, the actual schedule of parenting time is certainly more important than a designation of physical custodian order joint physical custodian.

Child Support
In the State of Michigan, child support is strictly dictate by a formula. If the income of the parties is known, the amount of overnight parenting time with each parent is known, health insurance premiums are known, and work related daycare expenses are known and verified, child support calculation is simple.

Alimony – Spousal Support
Spousal support or alimony can make an otherwise simple divorce case quite difficult, costly, and emotionally draining. Unlike child support, there is no mandated formula for spousal support.

When unmarried couples appear in a hospital to give birth, the father is asked to sign two documents: the Birth Certificate and Acknowledgment of Paternity. Few non-attorneys read the small print on the back of the blue card acknowledging paternity.
