Addison Township Family Law


Named for Addison Chamberlain, a settler and pioneer, Addison Township boasted a population of 6,351 according to data released as a result of the 2010 census. Situated over slightly more than 37 square miles, Addison Township contains both a village and two communities that are unincorporated. One unincorporated community, Lakeville, was settled in 1830 by Sherman Hughes while the other, Campbells Corner, shares a southern border with Oakland Township. The village of Leonard contains that zip code that covers a great deal of the eastern sections of Addison Township.

Of the 2,174 households that reside in Addition Township, according to census data from 2000, most (slightly over 70%) are married couples who are living together. Unfortunately, given the difficulties that are often faced by couples when they try to mesh their lives together into one cohesive unit, these marriages often run into problems. In many cases, these problems become overwhelming so the marriage dissolves into divorce.

In spite of the trauma involved with a divorce, this is no time to sit back and let the world move on with no action from you. To protect your interests, as well as the interests of any children that were conceived as the result of this marriage, you need to be proactive when it comes to seeking legal counsel. For your best protection, choose a lawyer that specializes in family law.

Regardless of your unique situation, when it comes to divorce, the first place you should start is with a lawyer who practices in family law. Due to the ever changing intricacies of family law, it is important to find a lawyer who has gone to court a number of times. Each time the lawyer goes up in court, experience is gained. For this reason, you will want to chose a seasoned lawyer who has a great deal of experience.

In addition to the hot button topics that couples often reach a stalemate over - child custody, property division and child support - your lawyer can provide you with plenty of other services that arise all too often in the family law courts that serve Addison Township. Some of these issues, such as paternity, are closely related to child custody and child support while others can often affect those couples with and without children on an equal basis.

Spousal Support

In this day and age, more women than ever before are employed outside the home. This may make spousal support seem like it is a moot subject. In reality, there are a number of situations when it is warranted.


As people enter a marriage when they are older, they often come with assets that must be protected. A prenuptial agreement is designed to do exactly that. Your family law attorney can help you navigate the sometimes murky waters of such an agreement.


If you think your marriage falls within the parameters of an annulment, your lawyer can help you solidify your case. This helps to increase your chances of being successful. Contact the law offices of Jannelle Zawadieh today for a FREE consultation.
