Western Michigan Divorce, Child Custody and Child Support Lawyer
At the law firm of Peter A. D' Angelo, PLC, we help people in Portage, Kalamazoo, Battle Creek and other communities throughout Western Michigan with a wide range of family law issues.
For more information about a family law issue, please click on one of the following links:
- Divorce: A court will pursue an equitable solution that is fair to all parties and craft a final decision based on the facts before it.
- Legal separation and annulment: A legal separation or annulment may be possible considerations depending on your case.
- Child custody: If you have children, the court will be primarily concerned with their best interests rather than what the parents want.
- Child support: In Michigan, child support is determined by a formula that considers the income of both parties, the child custody arrangement and the number of children you support.
- Child custody and support modifications: If your situation changes after divorce, your child custody and visitation agreement can change accordingly.
- Spousal support: Not every divorce in Michigan will result in an award of spousal support. However, there are circumstances where support is ordered.
- Pensions, IRA and 401(k) division: All assets accumulated during the marriage need to be divided, including retirement assets such as IRA and 401(k) accounts.
- Child protective services (CPS) actions: If you are accused of child abuse or neglect, your parental rights are at risk. Our lawyers can help you navigate the child protective services system.
- Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements: If you are bringing significant assets to your marriage, a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can help you protect them.
- Stepparent adoption: When a biological parent is out of the picture, a stepparent adoption can help bring security and legality to a parent-child relationship that already exists.
