Wayne County Divorce Attorney

Wayne County Divorce Attorney

There are a number of contentious issues in a Michigan divorce case, and these matters are often complicated by the emotions of spouses. Disputes over asset division, spousal support, and issues involving children can make it difficult to reach an agreement. Even when the spouses can reach a compromise in some areas, parties in a divorce may not fully understand the law. Without a legal background, spouses may unknowingly fail to protect their own interests.

Committed to Serving Your Needs in a Divorce Case

The client comes first when we take on your case. Our attorneys handle all issues related to divorce matters, whether you’re just considering filing your case, are currently working through the process, or seek a change to a previous order. Areas of representation include:

  • Asset Division: Property you obtain with your spouse during your marriage will be divided according to the interests of fairness. Asset division matters are often complicated because it’s necessary to make a determination between marital and non-marital property, a classification that’s not always clear-cut. An attorney can help ensure you obtain your fair share.
  • Spousal Support: Michigan law allows a judge to award alimony to one spouse where appropriate under the circumstances. The statute seeks to prevent a recipient from falling into financial difficulties after a divorce, especially when there’s a disparity between the incomes of the parties. Whether you required to pay or receive spousal support, our lawyers will protect your interests.
  • Child Support, Custody and Parenting Time: Under Michigan law, the best interests of the child are paramount when determining support, custody, and parenting time. Disputes over how parents meet this standard are common. An attorney will work with you to make sure the judge sees your side of the matter.
  • Post-Judgment Modifications: Things change in the months and years after your divorce. When it’s time to alter the terms of your divorce decree, we’re here to assist.

If you and your spouse can agree on these issues, our lawyers can work through the agreement negotiation and drafting process. Where contested issues remain, we’ll aggressively fight for your rights in court.
