When most people think of family law, they think of divorce. Although divorce certainly falls under the umbrella of family law and is often the reason why individuals face other kinds of family law cases, you can face family-related legal challenges without going through a divorce. No matter which type of family case you are working through, working with an experienced family lawyer will make the process much less stressful for you and increase your chance of achieving the goal you are working to achieve.
Family law is a broad area of the law and encompasses a variety of case types. These are the case types that hit close to home: legal proceedings that impact your relationships with your spouse and your children for the rest of your lives. Our team works with clients facing the following:
It is not uncommon for a client to be facing two or more of these issues at once. For example, a parent going through a divorce might need to establish child support and child custody orders as part of the divorce process.
We understand that family law cases like those listed above are more emotionally sensitive than other case types. When we represent clients, we also provide the emotional support and guidance they need to work through the court process productively.
Often, you will need to prove to the court that you are a fit parent by providing evidence to support your position. Your lawyer’s job includes helping you obtain and use this evidence, which can include testimonies from your child’s teacher or pediatrician, documentation showing that you have a stable income, evidence showing that you are in good physical and mental health, and documentation showing that you play an integral role in your child’s day-to-day life.
We work with our clients to help them resolve their cases in ways that suit all involved parties’ interests. When you are facing a proceeding that involves your child, you can not only think of your own best interest; you must prioritize your child’s needs. Our team of skilled family lawyers has more than 50 years of combined experience reaching solutions that work for Michigan families.
