Protecting You and Your Child in Oakland County Child Custody Proceedings

Under the Michigan Compiled Laws, the main goal of the court in dealing with child custody issues is to protect the child in question from harm and to ensure their best interests are served. These types of cases typically involve parents, grandparents, and other concerned family members. Decisions made at court hearings and in court orders issued by the judge in your case can influence the relationship you have with your child, both now and in the years to come.

At Iafrate & Salassa, P.C., we provide the professional legal representation you need to protect your child and to defend your rights as a parent in these situations. Cases our office handles include the following:

  • Physical custody of the child, which involves determining where the child will live;
  • Legal custody, which involves decision making authority for the child in regards to issues such as medical care, education, and religious upbringing;
  • Joint custody arrangements, in which parenting time is divided between the parents or other parties involved;
  • Sole custody, which awards primary custody to one parent while the other has visitation on weeknights, weekends, and over holidays or spring breaks.

In cases where there are allegations of domestic violence, child abuse or neglect, or abandonment by a parent, the child grandparents, other family members, or caseworkers with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) may be involved.
