Brighton Grandparent Custody Lawyers

In Michigan, child custody arrangements are determined by court order. Whether custody is granted as part of a divorce or as a stand-alone matter, decisions about custody can ultimately be made only by a judge.
If you are a parent or relative seeking custody of a child, it is important to have competent legal advice and representation. Our firm has been handling Michigan child custody matters since 1985, and we can handle yours.

Extensive Experience With Child Custody Challenges Of All Kinds

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Harris & Literski have extensive experience with child custody challenges of all kinds. If you choose us to represent you, we will work to protect your parental rights with regard to fair custody and parenting time arrangements while avoiding unnecessary conflict and expense. Once we have developed a workable plan based on your situation and your goals, our attorneys can petition a court on your behalf.
Our firm can help you address custody matters related to:
  • Divorce: Whether or not child custody is a serious point of contention in your divorce, we can assist you in making the best possible arrangements for your children.
  • Unmarried parents: Our firm has handled many cases involving unmarried parents seeking solutions to problems involving custody.
  • Grandparents or other relatives: Nonparents are limited in their ability to get custody of children, so seeking competent legal counsel is extremely important if you are a relative seeking custody.
  • Substance abuse, mental health or incarceration: When a custodial or noncustodial parent struggles with one of these issues, that struggle bears on child custody arrangements. We can facilitate solutions.
Our attorneys will assist you in reaching the most equitable custody and visitation arrangements possible. If your current custody, support or parenting-time arrangements must be adjusted because of a change in your employment, financial or living situation, we can represent you in court to request a modification of existing orders.
