Lake Orion Family Law Attorney
Family law is the area of law that deals with our closest relationships – the relationships we have with our families. This includes legal orders related to marriage, spousal maintenance, and divorce, as well as those related to your relationships with your children. In most family law cases, the “right” solution cannot be found in a statute, but through careful determination of the solution that is in all involved parties’ best interests.
Every state sets its own laws related to family issues, and Michigan is no different. If you have previously been divorced or worked through another family law issue in another state, do not expect your experience in Michigan to be the same. The best way to prepare for a family law proceeding in Michigan is to work closely with an experienced family lawyer to ensure that you have a full understanding of the process.
Working Through Family Law Issues
In many ways, family law can be the most challenging area of law because legal decisions in this arena can change your closest relationships forever. Working with an experienced family lawyer is perhaps the most effective way to ensure that your rights are protected and your interests are promoted when you are working through a divorce, drafting a prenuptial agreement, or addressing issues related to one of the orders in your divorce settlement.
Building meaningful relationships – or ending them appropriately – in ways that serve the involved parties’ best interests can often be achieved by working together, rather than litigating family issues in a courtroom. Depending on your circumstances, your lawyer might advise you to try mediation or collaboration as a way to develop appropriate family law orders. But sometimes, the only way to resolve an issue is to head to court. Because this is always a possibility, it is in your best interest to work with a family lawyer who has litigation experience. You might find you need shrewd defense for your position.
