Recognized by U.S. News Best Lawyers as a Tier 1 Best Law Firm, our family law and divorce attorneys represent individuals in a variety of family law matters, including pre-marital and paternity agreements, divorce and separation, child custody, child support modification, family financial planning, enforcement of court orders, and guardianships.

When a marriage ends, both spouses and their children often face a perfect storm of stressful decisions: new living arrangements, business valuation and partnership issues, parenting schedules, and, of course, issues concerning property and money. Our divorce and family law team’s collaborative structure is designed with clients’ needs in mind.  Attorneys in real estate, estate planning, tax, business valuation, and child custody work together to explain how the various issues intersect and guide you through the process.  To assist you in making the best decisions for you and your family, we have prepared the Michigan Divorce and Family Law Reference Guide.  While this reference will not provide you specific answers to your family situation — we hope that it will inform you about the legal process, explain how the courts interpret the law, and provide the necessary information to help you tackle these issues.

We have been helping West Michigan families resolve family law and divorce issues for over 50 years. Our primary objective is to achieve a positive resolution for you in a cost-effective and timely manner. During your initial visit, we will seek to understand your family’s situation, discuss Michigan divorce laws and proceedings, identify alternative processes, including the use of Certified Mediators or Arbitration, and empower you to move forward.
