Knowledge is the key to developing a successful strategy in any divorce or custody proceeding. An experienced attorney will be able to explain the process and predict possible outcomes based on his or her knowledge of the law and years of experience practicing in front of the very judges that will be assigned to your case. You should be well armed with the information necessary to make important decisions in your case and to get the outcome you deserve.
Information is also available from various State of Michigan and Macomb County websites that can give you a general understanding of divorce and custody proceedings.
