How Child Custody Works In Michigan

Family law in Michigan requires that decisions about child custody and visitation rights be dictated by the child's needs. What is in the child's best interest? That is the driving question. Of course, there are often disagreements about the answer to that question, which is why it is important to have a lawyer on your side who is committed to helping you.

Child custody comes in many forms. More often than not, courts favor joint custody. This is a form of custody that allows both parents to be involved in the child's upbringing. We will help you determine the variation of custody that makes the most sense for your family, and we will pursue negotiation or trial to obtain the proper arrangements.

Modification Of Child Custody Arrangements

Child custody orders can be changed at any time, provided there is a major change of circumstances. Examples of changes in circumstances include remarriage, a new work schedule or a move out of the Lansing area and into another part of Michigan or out of state. We can counsel you about your options, whether you are moving away or trying to prevent your child from being taken out of state.
