Oakland County Family Law Attorney

Oakland County Family Law Attorney

Family law is a broad area that covers everything from divorce to child custody to paternity. When people have disputes related to family law, there can be a lot at stake. For example, the way your divorce is resolved could have implications on your finances, your living situation, and even your ability to effectively parent your children. 

Fortunately, when you retain an Oakland County family law attorney at our firm, you can rest assured that your rights will be protected and that your case will be resolved as favorably as possible. Call us today to schedule your consultation with a member of our team.


When you think of family law, you likely first think of divorce. Divorce is a complicated legal process that you must navigate in order to legally end your marriage. While deciding to get divorced is already a difficult step, it is only the beginning of the journey, and you want the right attorney on your side to protect your interests and legal rights. 

In Michigan, you must meet certain residency requirements, and your divorce petition must be properly prepared and filed in the proper family court. While Michigan is a no-fault divorce state, misconduct by your spouse might play into other issues, so you should discuss these with your attorney. 

We handle all divorce-related matters, including:

  • Division of assets
  • Spousal support
  • Parenting time
  • Child support
  • Same-sex divorce

We know that divorce is not an easy time, and we are here to provide the support you need. Our team fights for the best possible outcome of your divorce to best protect your future. 

Child-Related Matters

Many family law cases involve children, so they can be particularly emotionally stressful. Child issues can arise as part of a divorce or as separate matters, and some issues we handle include:

  • Paternity – When two parents are unmarried and do not get married in the future, it is necessary to legally establish paternity. There are different ways to do this, including filing a case in court. 
  • Child Support – Whether you are getting divorced or have a paternity action, child support orders will likely result. These are based on specific formulas in Michigan, though in some cases, it might be justified to stray from the standard calculations. 
  • Parenting Time – Parenting time refers to the visitation schedule you will have with your child or children. We can help you attempt to negotiate a parenting time schedule out of court or defend your rights in litigation.
