Going through a divorce, custody dispute or some other family matter that requires legal representation can be stressful, but you can be confident when an accomplished attorney is by your side. At Rosenbaum, Bloom, Meyerson & Galinsky, P.C., Louis Galinsky is a Farmington Hills family lawyer who has capably served Michigan clients for more than four decades. We strive to resolve cases through settlement but are always prepared to go to court when that is the best way to achieve the outcome our client seeks.

Navigating Michigan divorce laws

You can get a divorce in Michigan as long as you or your spouse has lived in the state for at least 180 days, but how you handle the marriage dissolution process, and the attorney you hire, could have a significant effect on your future. Our firm guides clients on each facet of divorce in Michigan, including the filing of the Complaint and Answer, the use of mediation to resolve differences on parenting and financial terms and how marital misconduct sometimes plays a part in divorce trials even under the state’s no-fault system.

Child custody and parenting time in Michigan

When parents break up, terms relating to their children’s residence, legal authority and parenting time schedules are supposed to reflect the best interests of the child. Of course, there can be significant disagreement between mothers and fathers as to what that entails. Louis Galinsky is a child custody lawyer who takes the time to learn about clients’ sons and daughters in order to develop a parenting plan that puts young people in the best position to thrive after a difficult time.

Calculating spousal support in Michigan

Under Michigan law, judges have wide discretion to decide whether or not someone is entitled to spousal support, so it is critical to hire an attorney who can construct a persuasive case on your behalf. Typically, these decisions hinge on the length of the marriage, the parties’ ability to earn a suitable living and the lifestyle enjoyed by the couple when they were together. Whether representing someone requesting alimony or being asked to provide it, Louis Galinsky is an exceptional advocate during negotiations and court proceedings. 

Child support agreements, modifications and enforcement

Regardless of where a child lives, both parents are responsible for meeting that youth’s financial needs. This is true even if the parents never married. Michigan’s child support formula uses several factors to calculate a guideline rate, including each parent’s income, health insurance premiums and childcare expenses. There are also cases where a mother or father might seek to adjust the guideline amount or make provisions for other costs involved with raising and educating a son or daughter. Our firm handles all of these matters, as well as situations where an existing child support order needs to be modified or enforced.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

Negotiating a valid prenuptial agreement can help you avoid financial hardship should your marriage end in divorce. With a sound marital agreement, you also don’t have to worry about the aggravation or expense associated with the litigation of property division and spousal support issues. Our firm prepares and modifies all types of marital agreements to give prospective spouses, and clients who are already married, the financial security they are looking for.
