Child Custody in Michigan

Compassionate attorney protecting your rights to raise your child

Child custody is the most important issue a parent faces during divorce. No parent should have to endure the devastation of losing precious time with a child or forfeiting essential parental rights because of an unjust custody or visitation decision. You need an attorney committed to protecting your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment.

  • Primary or joint custody arrangements
  • Visitation rights
  • Grandparent visitation

    proceedings
  • Decisions related to religion, education and
    upbringing of the child

Mediation: a tool for cooperation

Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, parents can set aside enmity and agree on key points concerning their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool, helping you preserve your children’s wellbeing and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of mediation reduces the stress of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in your hands, rather than in the hands of the court. The Law Offices of Jennifer S. Peterson-Ramsey expertly guides negotiations toward a settlement that protects your child’s best interests and your parental rights.

By your side in litigation

Litigation may be necessary to protect your children’s best interests. If negotiations fail or the other parent is a danger to your child’s well-being, the courtroom provides an essential forum for establishing your parental rights. The uncertainty of litigation can add to the stress and upheaval of this time. But with an experienced Westland family law attorney by your side, you can feel confident that your children will be protected and your parental rights remain secure.
