Grand Rapids Divorce Lawyers
Committed to Providing You with Effective Representation
Are you contemplating a divorce or have you already filed? When going through this life-changing event, having trusted legal representation should not be optional. You will be facing some major decisions that can affect your life and the lives of your children for many years ahead. Dissolving a marriage is more than just separating physically or emotionally. It involves the disentangling of finances and property, resolving issues of child custody and visitation, determining which parent will have primary custody and which parent will provide child support, dividing marital assets and debts, establishing spousal support/alimony, and innumerable other issues large and small.

Our Grand Rapids divorce attorneys are here to address your concerns, answer your questions, and provide the sound counsel you need at every stage of the proceeding. We negotiate on your behalf, provide mediation services, or take your case to court when necessary. Our family law team is passionate about protecting your legal rights and helping you pursue the best possible outcome for your future.
Divorce in Michigan
Tanis Schultz handles both uncontested and complex contested divorce cases involving children, spousal support, complicated marital assets, and more. We will help you try to resolve any differences with your spouse through negotiation. However, if you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement on your divorce issues, we have extensive litigation experience.
In any divorce, you will need to resolve the following issues in order to finalize your divorce:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support
- The division of marital assets, property, and debts
Michigan is a no-fault divorce state which can facilitate the divorce process since evidence of marital misconduct is not necessary. Fault may influence a court’s decisions, however, concerning child custody, asset division, and spousal support. It is only necessary to demonstrate to the court that your marriage has been irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation. Either spouse may file for a divorce in Michigan regardless of whether the other spouse wants one or not.
