Family Law is a very comprehensive area of law in all states but especially in Michigan. Family Law encompasses divorce, separate maintenance and support, child custody and child support, spousal support (alimony), parenting time, personal property division, real property division, adoption, prenuptial agreements, and in some situations business evaluation and division. Below are brief descriptions of the more common Family Law subjects. There is not enough room here to discuss all aspects on these subjects and the facts of your situation can drastically determine the direction you should take. Please call Denise Cole at Grace Legal Services today to make an appointment to discuss your case in detail and receive the legal advice you need to know what direction to turn next.

Child custody and support are two distinct subjects. It is best to always keep them separate because the courts will. In Michigan there are two types of child custody, physical custody and legal custody.

There are many circumstances where at some point after a divorce or child custody or support case is finished that one party wants to modify or enforce the current order that is in place. Usually enforcement is allowed and sometimes modifications are justified but not always.

Prenuptial agreements are contracts that determine what will happen to your property in the event that you divorce. Prenuptial agreements have gotten a bad name over the years because people think that they are going into marriage with divorce already on their mind. However, some studies have shown the opposite effect.
