Groveland Township Family Law


Groveland Township is located in Oakland County, Michigan filled with families who believe in putting down roots. The entire township is only about 36 square miles, which makes it a close, tight-knit community. One of the major amenities of any community having access to valuable resources you may need to transact business. Finding a family attorney during those times is important. Here are a few tips in finding one that will be beneficial to you:

A good family attorney or law firm will specialize in the following areas: Divorce, Child Custody, Property Division, Spousal Support, Prenuptials, Child Support, Annulment and Paternity.

All of these areas are specific to family law and are necessary in making sure rights are protected and individuals are treated fairly. What do each of these areas entail?

Divorce, Spousal Support, Property Division

These three work together and may also include child support if children are involved. When going through a divorce proceeding, depending on the length of the marriage or the terms involved, spousal support may be a factor. A good family attorney will calculate financials and other pertinent information to make sure spousal support is equitable and fair. Property division may also be a factor in a divorce case, which can get pretty complicated. A good family attorney will make sure there are no liens, and may negotiate a settlement based upon the property and assets of the couple.

Child Support

Child support can be a factor for couples going through a divorce, or someone who has established paternity. A good family attorney will get all documentation together, which includes financial support and visitation arrangements. If a parent is just finding out about their child, a Paternity test may be needed to establish parental rights. An attorney can handle all of these sensitive matters in a discreet and professional manner.


Prenuptial agreements are very common now to protect the interests of one or both parties when entering into a marriage. These agreements cover financial assets, property and may or may not grant relief if the marriage does not work. This document is not to be taken lightly, and needs the advice of an attorney before signing on the dotted line. This document can outline everything from children, bank accounts, pets, vehicles and more. It may also include whether or not the spouse gets to keep the marriage surname. While this used to be specifically designed for affluent people, these are becoming standard practice for all couples for one reason or another.


These have been recently used for high-profile celebrities to terminate their marriage in a certain amount of days, but goes farther than that. An annulment is used for a variety of circumstances, and a family attorney will be able to provide counsel and draw up the paperwork in the best interests of everyone.

Finding an attorney will be worth the time and effort. In such a small community, you can be sure to find and obtain the representation you need. Let us help with your Family Law case. Call JZ Law today for a FREE consultation.
