We Handle It All (Affordable Fees)
Some family law attorneys feel most comfortable managing small divorces with minimal or no conflict. We can handle your uncontested divorce, but we are also experienced in the most complex contested divorces. We are committed to handling issues relating to high-conflict custody, relocation and removal, spousal support, complex business valuation and property division, and divorce cases other firms may not have experience with.
Michigan has "no fault" divorce, which means you don't have to prove either spouse did anything wrong to get a divorce. You do not need to prove abandonment, adultery, abuse or any other specific form of misconduct in order for a divorce to be granted.
We will be there for you when you CAN'T make it work.
Divorce, Child Support, Child Custody, Visitation & Alimony
What's the easiest way to get a divorce in Michigan?
Uncontested divorces in Michigan are sometimes called no fault divorces, and are generally the easiest way to get a quick and cheap divorce.
An uncontested divorce means that both parties have reached an agreement on all issues, including child support and visitation, the division of property, alimony amounts (if any), and all other issues, and client's spouse is willing to execute all paperwork, including signing an Acknowledgement Of Service, so that Sheriff's service will not be necessary.
What about contested Michigan divorce?
A divorce becomes contested when one or both parties do not agree to at least one or more terms of the divorce such as child custody, property division or any other reasons. Contested divorces can get complicated and expensive. Oftentimes, family judge may be required to make ruling. Litigants can be intimidated and overwhelmed by appearing in court. Contested divorces can become stressful if you try to handle them yourself. If the other party has a lawyer and you don’t, then it can get downright ugly.

In Michigan, a family judge may issue an order for temporary spousal support (alimony) during the course of a divorce. In a final divorce order, the court may also order either spouse to pay spousal support on a permanent basis. Both the amount and duration of a court’s alimony award may vary on a case-by-case basis.
Our law firm understands there are many situations where spousal support in the form of alimony payments from one spouse to another is necessary. We will carefully analyze all types of alimony currently available and determine which types are applicable to your personal circumstances.
An annulment in Michigan is done through a decision made by the court. An annulment declares that your marriage is not legally valid. Common reasons for annulments are marriages that are bigamous, contract marriages, done below the legal age of consent or incestuous.
The law imposes a duty of financial disclosure on spouses to a divorce. If you are in the process of a divorce, be prepared to turn your life into an open book. Discovery in divorce cases is important in order to insure that settlements are fair and that the court makes its decisions based on all relevant information. If it is later discovered that you intentionally withheld information from your spouse during this discovery process, you may be sanctioned by the court
In Michigan, there is a sixty (60) day waiting period if there are no minor children and a six (6) month minimum waiting period if there are minor children involved. However, if you and your spouse are unable to agree on all issues, then your case may take one (1) year to complete.
Custody & Visitation Issues
Legal custody of a child gives one or both parents the authority to make decisions for the child on such matters as education, religion, health care, and the like. Our attorney works with clients to advocate for the best interests of their children. When clients contact us, they can expect to work with a lawyer who will help them create a parenting plan that addresses the short and long-term needs of their family.
Our family law attorneys and divorce lawyers work closely with you to understand your unique needs, review your rights and options, consider creative alternatives, and prepare a sound legal strategy.

Contested Divorce Versus Uncontested Divorce
Divorces in Michigan are either contested or uncontested. Spouses that are able to agree on the terms of their divorce can elect an uncontested divorce, which may be less hassles, less expensive and less time-consuming than a contested divorce.
Contested divorces are more appropriate when the parties do not agree on most issues such as the custody of cow the property shall be divided. When we represent our clients, we fights for their rights and works to ensure that their rights are protected throughout the process.
Fair Division of Assets
Our firm can handle complex divorce cases involving large estates, financial interests in a business, and division of a military or work pension. Even in a “simple” divorce, there may be questions about whether an inheritance or a “separate” property has become a marital asset. When needed, we access financial experts to help our clients feel confident they are being treated fairly in the property settlement agreement.
Michigan's no-fault divorce laws allow spouses to unilaterally walk out on their families for any reason. Sometimes, divorces can get quite ugly, particularly when the couple fights for custody, alimony, spouse hiding assets, kidnapping children or property division. We have handled thousands of family law, uncontested and contested divorce cases in Michigan. We understand that issues that arise during a divorce can be traumatic, and our divorce lawyers are considered to be highly-skilled to handle all aspects of a divorce proceeding, including: alimony/maintenance, child support, custody, visitation, separation and distribution of property.
