Birmingham Divorce & Family Law Representation
Divorce is never part of the plan when a marriage takes place. However, when divorce is the resolution to marital discord, men and women often bring different perspectives to the process. The emotional stress of the loss of a relationship, coupled with the possibility of an unpleasant trial in court and the unknown fate of your future, can feel overwhelming and affect your ability to pursue a satisfactory outcome. ADAM is a strong supporter of alternative dispute resolution, which enables us to always make the client's emotional and financial well-being a priority. If a case can be resolved, it will be.
Our entire staff is dedicated to vigorously standing up for our clients and protecting their rights throughout the course of a divorce. By discussing your unique situation, options and goals for the outcome of the case, we can effectively strategize and determine the best course of action to take in order to protect your best interests.
Alimony / Spousal Support
Any consideration of alimony begins with an analysis of "need" and "ability to pay." We emphasize to our clients the importance of accurately and timely providing the necessary documents and information we need to provide counsel to them in this area. No one receives an award of alimony absent a demonstrated need, no matter the income of the other party.
Likewise, there is often need on the part of one spouse for additional income to cover monthly expenses, but no ability to pay on the part of the other spouse. Both elements must be met before an award is made. Additionally, it is not the parties who determine their need, or their ability to pay, but rather the law that defines the critical elements of need, income, ability and duration.
We've helped hundreds of clients throughout Michigan:
"While I was watching my daughter rehearse for play practice I realized how thankful I am for all of your help. When you first took my case I'm sure your initial thought was not positive toward me, after all, I was just another case. If not for your help, I would probably not be having that time or, any time with my daughter. My daughter is and has always been my only concern and will continue to be. Sorry this may sound sappy, but I wanted to let you know that I appreciate all that you have given back to me. My daughter told me last night before bed that she never wants to lose me again. This isn't the last time I will tell you this, but thanks again."* Edward Johansen
