At the turn of the Century, the Michigan Legislature created family courts in every county that have exclusive jurisdiction over all divorce and family law cases. All divorces begin with the filing of a pleading known as a complaint for divorce at the county courthouse. Our lawyers ensure that your case is prepared prior to filing, during the discovery process, through the negotiations inevitable in divorce proceedings, and after the judgment of divorce is entered with the court. Our firm will protect your interests by maintaining a position of strength through preparedness in all phases of your divorce.
