When you are facing a dispute over child custody or visitation, numerous obstacles may lie in the way. Your spouse and children may have needs, rights and goals that need to be reconciled with yours. In addition, Michigan's Child Custody Act sets out legal guidelines that seek to preserve children's relationships with both parents whenever possible. Assertive, results-driven representation is essential.

Courts always resolve issues of custody and parenting time in ways they perceive are in the "best interest" of the child.
It is here where experience can make a difference in a custody dispute. For example, is the child's other parent an alcoholic or drug addict? Is he or she engaged as a parent? Have your children expressed a custody preference? These and other relevant facts must be brought to the attention of the court and presented in a compelling manner.
We can prepare and present a thoroughly prepared case for you. By balancing the facts of the situation with applicable laws and the best interests of your children, we can fight effectively for your custody and visitation goals. Our lawyers have successfully represented many parents in custody and visitation cases. We will represent you with passion, skill and dedication.
We are prepared to represent you in litigation if necessary. Other means however, may be available, which can achieve your goals without the need for a costly court fight. These include negotiation and alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and conciliation conferences — that can achieve practical and workable solutions. Some disputes however, require vigorous representation. Whatever the nature of your case, we will do what is necessary to protect your rights.
