Full Service Family Law Firm in Allegan

I zealously advocate for your rights and provide protection for your family during all family law proceedings, including:

  • Adoption
  • Alimony
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Child support modification and enforcement
  • Divorce
  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
  • Mediation
  • Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

Adopting a child brings happiness to families but the legal process may also be overwhelming. I assist with the complex legal process of adoption, prioritizing your needs and providing a sense of security that the process will be completed thoroughly and in a timely manner.

In these modern times many people do not realize that alimony remains an option. Let me help you obtain the best possible resolution for your situation.

Child custody and visitation
The best interests of the children should always be placed first when the parents have made the difficult decision to divorce or separate.  Keeping that in mind, I am always a fierce advocate for your parental rights, fighting to ensure you can raise your children in the best possible home.

Child support
Parents share the responsibility of raising their child in every aspect, even after their relationship is over. It is essential that a fair amount of child support be paid so that the child can have a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either you or the other parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, I can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

Through mediation or litigation, I aggressively advocate for your rights to achieve the best possible settlement or judgment — including your fair share of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments, child custody, and parenting time.

Juvenile delinquency and Family Court proceedings
If your child is accused of violating Michigan Law, I will stand beside you in protecting your child from the lasting effects of a delinquency proceeding. I will tenaciously advocate on your child’s behalf in obtaining a just and equitable resolution to the case.

When Michigan authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a zealous advocate who understands how to cut the bureaucratic red tape. I am skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Michigan to protect your parental rights.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
I will draft fair and reasonable agreements that protect both spouses’ financial interests.

I have close to 25 years of experience in all family law matters. Call me at 269-673-2105 to schedule an appointment.
