  • Division of assets: Even in a seemingly simple divorce, it is extremely important to have an attorney work with you to make sure your interests are protected and that the assets are divided equitably.
  • Parenting time and custody: Where will the children stay? When will the other parent get to visit the child? What are the conditions under which visitation will take place? Our lawyers know the landscape of child custody and parenting time, and we will protect your important time with your children.
  • Child support: Our lawyers have a strong command of how judges evaluate the factors in determiningchild support in Michigan.
