Bloomfield Hills Family Law


Attorneys experienced with most Bloomfield Hills family law components can help you safely navigate the complex nature of the circuit court family division cases. Experienced representation can make the difference between fair and equitable settlements and court orders that appear to favor one party over the other.

Common Family Law Issues in Bloomfield Hills

While most common family law issues in Bloomfield Hills appear in other parts of Michigan, also, attorneys familiar with the city's courts and personnel may have subtle advantages because of this familiarity. The following items are common issues the circuit court family division hears.

Divorce - whether contested or uncontested, including interstate divorce actions

Child custody - including naming the custodial parent or shared custody, visitation rights and other parenting issues

Property division - negotiating agreements or court orders for equitable splits of marital assets

Spousal support - which have no mandatory guidelines, such as for child support, but does involve factors the court considers, which include the following items.

The length of the marriage,
Spousal ages and health conditions,
Spouses' ability to work and generate income,
Ability to pay support,
Financial position after property division,
Current quality of life or standard of living, and
Principals of fair and equitable treatment

Prenuptial agreements - that appear negotiated in good faith or are contested by one of the parties

Child support - as per the mandatory formula family division courts must use in calculating the amount of support ordered

Annulment - in which the spouses ask the court to rule that the marriage never legally existed

Paternity - which at times must be proven when the alleged sperm donor denies parentage of one or more minor children

Adoptions - which must meet Michigan standards to be legal and binding

Child abuse (or neglect) claims, which may or may not be transferred to criminal cases, and
Other issues relating to domestic relations , including domestic abuse, name changes or miscellaneous family matters needing court objectivity and decisions.

Since most of these family law components require each side to display verifiable information supporting his/her position, family law specialists are the best options for representing you in Bloomfield Hills' courts.
