Helping You Navigate The End Of A Marriage
The end of a marriage is a challenging time. Not only are you emotionally exhausted, but you may also worry about divorce putting a significant burden on your time and money. Even if the split is amicable, separating two interwoven lives has a lot of hurdles.
At Gentry Nalley, PLLC, our goal is to be there for you when you need it most. We will help identify your goals and accomplish them in the most cost-effective manner. Divorce is a challenging transition, and many families in Howell have used us as their guides. We can do the same for you.
Does My Divorce Need To Go To Court?
If you believe that your spouse will try to take advantage of you during the divorce, then the courtroom may be the best place to protect your rights. We have years of experience in front of judges and are absolutely prepared to advocate on your behalf.
However, not every divorce involves drawn-out courtroom proceedings. Our attorneys often pursue mediation, arbitration or other alternative dispute resolution methods if they make sense. After assessing your situation, we will lay out your options and make a recommendation. The final decision, however, is yours.
When Can I See My Children?
Determining child custody is one of the biggest issues in any divorce. In Michigan, courts will pursue whatever is in the best interests of the child. While the starting assumption is that a child will benefit from an equal relationship with both parents, that is subject to other mitigating factors. We will help you navigate this sensitive aspect of divorce to arrive at an arrangement that is best for your child.
Dividing Complex Assets
Unless a couple reaches a different arrangement on their own, Michigan courts will try to divide assets fairly between the two parties. Sometimes this is a straightforward determination, but other times it is not. Our attorneys have experience valuing and dividing complex property, businesses, investments, collections and other unique valuables.
Solid Ground In Uncertain Times
People who are facing divorce often feel more off balance than at any other point in their lives. Our lawyers provide stability. With our steady guidance, you will be able to successfully move through this chapter and on to the next.
