Oakland Township Family Law


Oakland Township, Michigan is part of the Detroit Metro Area. Located in Oakland County, it has a population of just under 17,000. Some of that population are people who work as family law attorneys. These people can help you with a lot of different aspects of your life, such as divorce, paternity, annulment, and child support. Prenuptial agreements are also a part of family law, as are child custody, child support, spousal support, and property division.

Going through struggles with family law issues can be rough on everyone involved. Divorce, especially, is difficult on the spouses and any children involved. If you have children, it's important to protect them as much as possible during the divorce. You can do that by being age-appropriate with information you give them, and by reassuring them that you both love them and they have done nothing wrong. It can be hard for a child to absorb the reasons behind the divorce of his or her parents, especially if there is a lot of fighting going on and there are serious disagreements between the spouses.

However, with a family law attorney on your side you can learn more about what you can do to help your children get through a divorce. You can also get through it more easily, and can work with your spouse to reach agreements on things like child support, child custody, and property division. Every couple has at least some property that has to be divided. If you can your spouse can agree on the division of property, that information can be put into the divorce filing and become a part of the final decree. Generally, that's much easier than fighting everything all the way to the judge and allowing him or her to make a ruling.

You may not be happy with the judge's ruling, and if that's the case you'll have to file to have things changed. That costs more time, money, and stress, so it's something you'll want to avoid if possible. Consider the best interests of everyone involved in the divorce process, so you can focus on getting through it and moving on with your life. That's true with annulments and paternity cases, as well.

While it can be difficult to make concessions about issues that matter to you, and there could be many reasons you want to fight a particular part of an agreement, talking with your attorney can provide you with many options and a good understanding of whether you have a winnable case. Fighting just for the sake of fighting doesn't make sense in the long term. It also causes a lot more stress in your life and can be very expensive.

Still, it's worth talking to your attorney if you think you have a case, or if there's something in your divorce proceedings that you're really concerned about. You don't have to just give up everything that matters to you. You only need to be realistic about what you can and can't get from the divorce or other proceeding, so it's as fair as possible to everyone involved. Free consultation for Family Law services.
