The prospect and notion of grandparenting time has become a hot-topic in the realm of family law in recent years. What rights do grandparents have to time with their grandchildren? Well, in Michigan, it really depends. In certain situations (i.e. a pending or entered divorce, the death of a parent/child and/or parents who are married and do not live together), then grandparents have more defined rights. If there is merely a dispute between parent and grandparent, grandparents have a major up-hill battle to climb. For more information on this or any other family law/divorce topic, please contact us.


You heard that right, pet custody experts! Dogs are part of our families, and, must be discussed and accounted for accordingly. My 4-pawed partner Hudson and I discuss pet custody, and, my favorite model where the dog stays with the minor children and follows their parenting time schedule. It is always comforting to have their furry friend with them during times of change and transition. If you have any questions on pet custody, parenting time, or divorce in general, please contact us.

Please, I implore you, do not fight over pots and pans or other trivial personal property. Family heirlooms are different. As is expensive art, pieces of jewelry and things like that. Otherwise, I promise you, it is not worth it. If you would like to discuss personal property division, or, any other family law matters, please contact us here.
