Michigan Courts Have Authority To Decide Custody Disputes

Children are the most important concern in any marriage and in any divorce. It is imperative that their needs — familial, financial, medical, educational — are met. When parents part, Michigan law permits them to draft their own custody and visitation agreements. However, if the parents cannot come to a resolution, the court has the authority to decide matters for them under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act. When this occurs, everyone involved often ends up dissatisfied.

For nearly two decades, I have assisted individuals and their families in their custody considerations. Serving in Southfield and throughout southeast Michigan, I am skilled in helping parents reach accord through negotiation, working closely with both parties throughout the process. I listen to them; I listen to them and I ascertain their needs, and then endeavor to achieve them. Yet I am also a seasoned courtroom lawyer and will always be prepared to represent my clients in trial.

Helping You Understand Your Options

I offer experienced, objective counsel for a wide array of custody matters, including:

  • Drafting custody arrangements
  • Drafting visitation and parenting time schedules
  • Assembling change-of-domicile requests (relocations)
  • Protecting against termination of parental rights actions
  • Fathers' rights
  • Grandparents' rights
  • Adoption

State law recognizes that all decisions must be made with the child's best interests in mind. I strive to make sure this is so, while protecting the parents' rights as well.
