Areas of Family Law

Our firm has extensive experience assisting clients in various family law matters, including:

Divorce and Legal Separation

We assist:

  • Individuals contemplating divorce.
  • Those served with divorce papers.
  • Couples seeking legal separation rather than immediate divorce.

Our attorneys are well-versed in Michigan’s no-fault divorce procedures, handling contested matters

and facilitating negotiations or resolutions related to property and asset disputes.

Child Custody & Parenting Time

Child custody proceedings can be emotionally charged. We facilitate agreements on:

  • Legal Custody (determining decision-making rights regarding education and healthcare).
  • Physical Custody (deciding where the child will reside).

Should negotiations falter, we provide representation in court to protect your interests.

Child Support

Michigan’s child support guidelines ensure fairness and consistency. We ensure accuracy and fairness in

the formula’s application and stand by you for future modifications.

Our services extend to ancillary matters such as property division, spousal support, paternity issues,

name changes, and protection from abuse.

Beyond Legal Solutions

Our commitment extends beyond legal resolutions. We understand the importance of maintaining healthy family dynamics post-separation. To support you comprehensively, we collaborate with a network of professionals including social workers, family advocates, financial advisors, mortgage specialists, counselors, appraisers, and more. Success isn’t just a legal victory—it’s about achieving positive outcomes for all involved, especially when children are affected.
