Sterling Heights Family Lawyer Helps Clients Overcome Challenges

Accomplished Michigan attorney advises on domestic legal concerns

Family law issues aren’t temporary concerns: they are matters that will affect you and your loved ones for many years to come. That’s why it’s important to find an attorney who isn’t just focused on the result of a particular case but the long-term welfare of you and those closest to you. At Dawson Family Law, PLLC in Sterling Heights, I am a family lawyer with more than 40 years of experience achieving positive results in divorces, custody proceedings and other types of cases affecting Michigan residents and their households.

Focused firm provides comprehensive counsel on matrimonial litigation

Whether you’re ending your marriage or making sure that your assets are protected in the event of a divorce, my firm delivers exceptional advice and advocacy on concerns such as:

  • Divorce — I give clients comprehensive support in divorce cases whether key terms are uncontested or the spouses have several areas of serious disagreement.
  • Alimony — When spousal support becomes an issue after someone files for divorce, my firm explains the standards used by courts and works toward fair alimony arrangements.
  • Asset division — As a seasoned attorney who has significant experience with high-asset matrimonial litigation, I’ll seek an appropriate asset division through negotiations or in court.
  • Domestic violence — If you’ve been affected by domestic violence, legal relief is available to hold the abuser accountable and prevent further contact. Don’t hesitate to contact an accomplished family lawyer who can petition for a protective order.
  • Marital agreements — By drafting an enforceable prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, you and your spouse can avert the possibility of long, expensive disputes over the shared assets and spousal support if you choose to dissolve your marriage at some point.

In family law matters, early counsel from a knowledgeable attorney can prevent unnecessary problems and give you the best chance for a successful outcome. My firm gives clients in Macomb County and other metro Detroit areas a free initial consultation to ease their burden.

Knowledgeable adviser assists with child custody and support issues

When courts make decisions regarding child custody and visitation, they are bound by law to act in the child’s best interests. Of course, what that entails can be a complex and contentious issue. My firm gives each client personal attention and pursues consensus on matters relating to legal authority, residence and parenting time. I also deal effectively with concerns that arise relating to the creation, modification and enforcement of child support orders.

Skillful attorney uses mediation to bridge the gap between parties

A public courtroom is often not the best place to reach positive decisions about sensitive family law issues. In a more private and less stressful forum, mediation gives divorcing spouses and other parties engaged in conflict the chance to discuss their issues and concerns before a qualified third party. As someone who has served as a mediator in numerous Michigan counties, I have a detailed understanding of how this alternative dispute resolution process can reduce the time, money and hassle associated with domestic law disputes.
