Southeast Michigan Divorce Lawyers

Devoted Attention ∙ Creative Solutions ∙ Minimized Stress

Facing divorce can be overwhelming. The level of uncertainty about the future and about how important matters such as child custody, property division and other matters will be decided only add to the strain individuals endure when confronting divorce. The entire process can be even more emotionally challenging for the children.

Our family law attorneys at Hertz Schram work hard to minimize the emotional strain clients and their families endure through the legal process by focusing on developing solutions outside of the courtroom whenever possible. However, we are dedicated to preserving our clients' interests, whether through a negotiated divorce settlement agreement or through divorce litigation.

Divorce is a terrible life-changing event for everyone involved. It is important that your divorce lawyer recognize that filing for divorce is not just a matter of filing papers and deciding issues of custody, asset division and support obligations. Divorce is a life transition — mentally, physically and financially.

At Hertz Schram, we dedicate ourselves to fighting to protect that which is most important to you — your parental rights, your property and your finances. While in some cases, this can be achieved through amicable negotiations, we never forget the importance of results for clients in divorce cases and are equipped to provide strong advocacy and representation in the courtroom.

Individualized Service From Oakland County Property Division Attorneys

Our Detroit area divorce lawyers never underestimate the value of personalized attention throughout the divorce process. We work closely with you to help you understand Michigan divorce and property division laws, evaluate your goals and develop a legal strategy to achieve a favorable outcome in what seems to be a very dim situation.

We work to negotiate fair and favorable solutions or fiercely litigate divorce matters involving:

  • Child custody and visitation
  • Property division (including asset and debt division)
  • Child support
  • Spousal support/alimony
  • Post-judgment modifications (including child support, spousal support, custody and parenting time)
  • Other divorce issues

In divorce and family law matters, our lawyers work with individuals across the financial spectrum. In the current economy, many people are entering divorce with very few assets and a significant amount of debt. Dealing with these debt issues can become as contentious as dividing high-value assets. We are accustomed to advising clients about the interplay between divorce and bankruptcy. Conversely, we are also adept at handling divorce cases involving a significant amount of assets and income. We are equipped to investigate concerns of hidden assets, complete thorough business valuations, address division of retirement accounts and resolve other issues that arise in complex property division cases.

In addition to handling all aspects of divorce, our family law attorneys are equipped to address related issues that arise in connection with divorce, such as revising wills, trusts and other estate planning instruments, and in pursuing marital tort litigation in cases of assault, abuse, fraud, emotional distress or transmission of STDs.
