Ortonville Family Law


Located in Oakland County, Michigan, Ortonville is part of Brandon Township and home to nearly 1,500 people. It's a rural environment where people know one another and can help out in times of need. If you're struggling with a family problem, like divorce or child support issues, the best thing to do is find a good family law attorney in the area who can help you work through the process, file the right forms, and get all that you deserve from any settlement or court ruling. With all the emotion that comes with things like divorce, it can be hard to stay logical about it.

Having an advocate can help you stay on the right track, so you don't end up letting your emotions get in the way of what's fair for everyone. That's especially important in cases of divorce where there are children involved. Child custody and child support can be contentious issues for divorcing spouses. Sometimes, it seems the children are used as pawns in the battle. That's unfair to those children, but not always something about which much can be done. If you have a good family law attorney, though, you'll be more likely to avoid those kinds of problems, at least on your side of the argument.

Among concerns that divorcing couples have, one has to consider property division. When people divide their property, they can do so amicably or through a forced division imposed by the court. It's naturally much better (and generally less expensive) to come to an agreement with your spouse. That can provide you with a plan you both can follow, and something the court will most likely approve. That won't leave you stuck with a court-ordered ruling neither of you agree with, or that you might find unfair.

By having a family law attorney in Ortonville on your side, you can focus on all of the value you'll receive from having an advocate to help you. If you plan on asking for spousal support - what many people call alimony - a lawyer will be nearly essential to the process. Since most people don't get this kind of support anymore, you'll need to clearly show why it's justified in your particular case. That's easier to do when you have a legal advocate who knows the ins and outs of the law and can guide your case toward the best possible conclusion.

Of course, family law isn't just about divorce and all of its sub-issues. It's also about prenuptial agreements, paternity concerns, and annulments. While not as commonly seen by most family law attorneys as divorce cases, all these other facets of family life have to be addressed. For those who are arguing paternity cases, there are tests that can quickly and easily be done to take care of any lingering questions. Annulments are for very special circumstances, such as fraud. If you're considering a prenuptial agreement, you also want an attorney to draw that up for you, so you don't have to worry about it being invalid or unenforceable in the event you need it in the future.
