Practice Areas
  • Family Law

  • In Michigan, all family law issues are handled at the circuit court level. Depending on the stage of your case, your issues may be heard by a referee at the Friend of the Court or a Judge at the circuit court. While Michigan is a no fault state with regard to the reason for filing of a divorce or legal separation action, fault may play a role in the determination of custody, parenting time and property settlement. Even after a divorce or legal separation case has been finalized, issues of custody, parenting time and child support may be modified upon showing proper cause or a change of circumstances.
