Could bankruptcy cost you custody?

Michigan's law sets out 12 factors to be considered whenever there is a custody dispute, the "sum total" of which are used to determine custody. While "bankruptcy" isn't specifically listed among them, there are several factors that could allow the judge to consider your past or present bankruptcy as part of the custody decision.

Steps to take to prepare financially for your divorce

Finances are one of the key factors in getting a divorce. It might simply be that a lack of finances in the marriage is causing stress, but many times it is simply an incompatibility between the two people in the marriage about their finances. If you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse are already at odds over finances, getting divorced is going to be that much more difficult. That's not to say that you cannot get divorced, but you should count the cost and be prepared.
