Experienced, Compassionate Representation For Grand Rapids Divorces and Post Judgment Issues

Getting divorced is a highly personal, emotionally charged, and complex experience. Knowing what to expect can help ease the stress and create a sense of security at a time when you may be uncertain about your future.

Having experienced legal representation is necessary for navigating the complex process of divorce in Michigan. Mirque Law PLLC offers the skill and knowledge to handle even the most complex and contentious divorces, with the object of securing fair resolutions. We serve clients in Grand Rapids, Holland, Grand Haven, Hastings and Kalamazoo and throughout West Michigan.

Dependable Counsel For Divorce And Custody Matters

We are well-suited to develop targeted legal strategies for the unique circumstances of your marital dissolution. We advise, resolve, negotiate and litigate as appropriate based on the particular issues you face. We successfully negotiate on behalf of clients involved in highly contentious situations. We are diligent in discovering the complete marital estate, and seasoned in ensuring that the best interests of the children remain in the forefront of our clients' cases.

We will walk you through the procedures for initiating divorce or pursuing a post divorce proceeding in Michigan. We will explain all steps in the divorce process so that you can prepare yourself and make informed decisions at each stage. We are well-versed in all divorce situations and collateral issues, including:

The role of mediation, even in complex and high-conflict divorce
Temporary orders for custody, support, and marital property
All facets of property division and community property disputes
All matters of custody, visitation, and child support
Spousal support
LGBT matters
Prenuptial agreements (creating or litigating)
Domestic violence restraining orders
Bankruptcy in the context of divorce
Post-divorce modifications of court orders
Appeals 

We handle your personal and financial matters with the foresight and attention to detail necessary to ensure that your unique circumstances are given proper consideration, that your marital and parental rights are protected, and that your marital estate is justly divided. We will conduct discovery in accordance with the needs of your matter and we will address the complex financial issues that arise out of the division of businesses, pensions and retirement plans, stock portfolios, stock options, and real estate.

Divorce Solutions For Michigan

Once an action for divorce has started, either party can request temporary assistance from the court. This request may be for temporary orders for custody and child support, spousal support, payment of marital debts, or for other temporary relief necessary for the circumstances of your divorce, such as orders for exclusive use and possession of the marital home.

Additionally, Michigan's family laws have the express underlying policy of ensuring a proper division of marital property and fair and equitable child support and spousal support awards. To effect this policy, the law expects that parties to a divorce exchange information regarding real and personal property, income, retirement accounts, and debts together with supporting documents. This gathering of information is done through the process of "discovery". We diligently prepare documents during the discovery phase for our clients, conduct the discovery necessary to obtain an accurate and comprehensive picture of the marital estates of our clients, and carefully scrutinize the documents produced by opposing parties, to ensure that the court receives an accurate depiction of the marital estate.

It helps to have counsel to advise and assist you as you navigate the filing, discovery, negotiation, and litigation stages of a dissolution. We will ensure that your divorce — whether contested, uncontested, or default — conforms to the statutory procedure requirements and accords with the rights and obligations imposed by the state of Michigan.
