Michigan Family Law Attorneys: Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Getting married is one of the biggest and most important decisions you’ll make in your life. A marriage is more than an emotional commitment; it’s also a legal commitment with long-lasting financial consequences.
Though no one expects their marriage to end in divorce, if one does occur, it can threaten to leave your finances in shambles. Michigan family law allows couples to enter into a prenuptial agreement (also known as a “prenup” or a premarital agreement) that dictates the division of assets and debts in the event of a divorce.
For a premarital agreement to be upheld, it must be fair, voluntary, and entered in good faith. The state also recognizes similar agreements made between couples who are already married—known as postnuptial agreements or “postnups”—if they meet similar requirements.
If you’re considering adding a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement to your relationship, we can work with you to ensure that it’s valid, enforceable, and achieves your goals.
Divorce, Custody, and Support
Like marriage, divorce is more than an emotional event; it’s a legal process that has the potential to affect many aspects of your life. But, regardless of who initiated the divorce, we can help you protect your rights, your wishes, and your family during this unsettling and uncertain time. Our law firm accepts all types of Michigan divorce cases, including uncontested or complex divorces, high-conflict or high-asset divorces, and military divorces.
Additionally, our experienced Michigan Family Law Divorce attorneys also handle legal challenges that arise throughout the divorce process, such as:
- Property division. Let us help you protect your separate property, ensure the fair division of marital assets and debts, or execute your prenuptial or postnuptial agreement in the divorce.
- Child custody. We can assist you in fighting for a fair custody arrangement, a modification to an existing custody agreement, or a parental relocation. We also handle Michigan-based cases involving international custody issues.
- Parenting time and visitation. We will advocate for parenting time and visitation schedule that’s in your child’s best interests and ensures a consistent and continuing relationship with both loving parents.
- Child support. Though Michigan child support decisions are mathematical, we can use our extensive knowledge to your advantage to make sure that the amount you receive—or pay—is fair.
- Spousal support (alimony). Will you need financial help from your spouse during—or even after—a divorce? Let us fight to protect your rights and get the support you deserve.

Michigan’s Adoption Process & Surrogate Law
Adoption can be a great way for Michigan residents to grow or complete their families. The state recognizes many different types of adoptions, including infant, state, court ward, step-parent, relative, interstate, international, and adult adoptions. But, that doesn’t mean it’s easy to adopt.
