Family Law in Michigan

On Behalf of | Jan 27, 2015 | Family Law |

Family law is an area of the law that deals with family matters and domestic relations, including divorce but not limited to divorce proceedings. Family law usually applies to domestic issues when the parties involved were either never married or are no longer married but still have child related issues or post judgment matters that need to be addressed in Court. Here is a general list of domestic issues that fall under the family law category:

  • Paternity
  • Custody
  • Parenting Time/Child Visitation
  • Child Support
  • Spousal Support
  • Post Judgment Matters
  • Adoption
  • Child Abuse and Neglect
  • Juvenile Adjudication

When facing a difficult family law matter it is important that you retain an attorney that is experienced in family law and understands the issues at hand and how they relate to the current law. It is important that you retain an attorney that is experienced in the courtroom and can provide aggressive and persuasive representation.

While it is true that any licensed attorney in good standing may appear and represent a party in a court of law, the fact that an attorney holds a degree and is licensed to practice law does not automatically mean that they can handle a family law case properly. Just as a patient should not ask a doctor of podiatry to perform a brain surgery a client should not ask a bankruptcy attorney to handle his family law matter.
