Most people think about family law as involving highly contentious legal battles in the courtroom, but there are a number of issues that can be resolved without a long, drawn out, and expensive court battle.

What Michigan Family Law Attorneys Do

Family law matters are personal and often contentious, especially when property division and/or child custody are involved. Our family law attorneys can help in a variety of ways, including:

  • Listening to Your Needs: What good is an attorney if he or she does not listen to you and learn the specifics about your particular case and current legal needs? We understand that every case is unique, and therefore a single approach does not work for every legal issue.
  • Strong Negotiators: We have a team of strong negotiators. That is an important skill to help resolve any outstanding issues in an attempt to avoid a long drawn out legal battle in court.
  • We Are Assertive: In situations in which you need to have court intervention, we are not afraid to stand our ground. We work to protect our clients’ rights and will fight for you in every aspect of your legal dispute.
  • We Put Children First: If you have children, we make them our priority. We know the best interests of your children are of the utmost importance.
  • Establish Attainable Goals: It is important to set reasonable goals and keep on track. Having an unbiased third party is important, as coming to long-term decisions can be difficult.

Importance of Choosing the Right Family Law Attorney

Michigan family law attorneys need to be well-versed in state laws and understand how the family law courts work. Retaining the wrong attorney could mean you lose everything, including assets and custody of your children, and you could be ordered to pay spousal support in addition.
