At Iafrate & Salassa, P.C., we represent clients in many different types of family law cases, including but not limited to the following:
We represent clients in many different matters involving divorce, including contested and uncontested divorce, the division of marital assets and debts, questions about spousal support, and child custody and support cases when there are minor children from the marriage.
Yet we also recognize that family law is much broader than divorce cases, and we regularly represent clients in many other types of family law matters. We can help you to draft an enforceable prenuptial agreement, and we can evaluate an existing prenup to determine whether it is likely to be enforced by the court. We can also represent you in a paternity case if you are seeking child custody or planning a child support enforcement action. Domestic violence issues can also arise in family law cases, and our Birmingham family law attorneys can help you.
Child custody is another common type of family law matter in Birmingham and throughout Michigan. Whether parents are getting divorced or separating, or a parent needs assistance with a paternity case in order to seek child custody, a family lawyer in Birmingham at our firm can help. In Michigan, sole custody can be awarded to one parent or joint custody can be awarded to both parents. When one parent is the primary custodial parent, the other parent can be eligible for parenting time. There are many different factors that Michigan courts consider when deciding what kind of child custody arrangement is best for the child.
Most family law orders can be modified under certain circumstances. While a person cannot simply ask the court to modify an existing order because she or he does not like the terms, most types of family law orders can be modified under Michigan law when there is proper cause for a modification or a change in circumstance.
No matter what type of family law issue you are facing in Michigan, one of our experienced Birmingham family law attorneys can begin working with you today on your case.
