Taylor, MI Family Law Firm - Marke Gilbert & Associates, PLLC
Downriver, MI Attorney Marke Gilbert is a dedicated Family Court Lawyer representing the best interests of you, your children, and your assets
In any case of divorce/separation, it's vital to have an experienced family lawyer on your side to ensure every one involved is treated fairly and all legal issues are properly settled. If you live in the Metro Detroit area and facing a complicated divorce or family separation matter, Marke Gilbert is an experienced family court lawyer you can trust to protect you, your family, and your assets.
I share the court's on focus on the best interests of the children in custody matters. Like their parents, sons and daughters of divorce are entitled to peace of mind and stability. As an experienced child custody lawyer in the Downriver area I will secure the best possible child custody arrangement that suits your children's needs.
Strict formulas determine child support amounts and are based on income, overnights and other factors. As an experienced child support lawyer I am fluent in all details involved, and I will ensure that all appropriate factors are considered when pursuing a child support settlement.
An effective spousal support attorney understands that spousal support matters are more subjective and based upon immediate and future needs. Considering the ever-changing needs of you and your spouse I can help you pursue the best possible settlement.
Cases involving custody in more than one state are complex and require a child custody lawyer experienced in properly handling custody and support matters regardless of jurisdiction.
Visitation & Parenting Time
Minimizing the impact of a divorce comes in both parents spending quality time with their children. They are entitled to not only a stable environment but also one that is safe. Maintaining the welfare of the parents and the children requires the expert help of a child visitation attorney to find that healthy balance for both parents and children.
Few divorce-related issues are as emotional as the possible move-away of a child to another state. While their best interests must be determined, the parent left behind has rights that need protection as well.
Sadly, many divorces involve one spouse turning a child against the other parent. Manipulation and disparaging remarks have not only poisoned a young mind but also put a future parental relationship at risk.
Property & Asset Division
Dividing and protecting assets can turn an uncontested divorce into a war. In Michigan, marital property is usually divided fairly. However, the process becomes complex and contentious when valuing property, specifically when it involves pensions and IRAs that may be considered "high value". In these cases, a high asset divorce attorney well-versed in negotiating the division of "high-value" assets should be involved. As an experienced family law attorney I can help stabilize and protect assets during the division process, not matter the value of the property/assets.
Enforcement Rights & Domestic Violence Issues
A spouse committing domestic violence or unwilling to adhere to a divorce decree must be held accountable. As a Metro Detroit divorce lawyer experienced with domestic violence issues, my job is to protect both the rights and the safety of my clients.
Over time, employment and financial situations change; or the best interest of a child changes, requiring us to revisit a divorce decree and modify as needed to better reflect the present. This includes child support modifications, child custody modifications, or any other fluid situation that needs to be revisited.
Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Taking proactive steps prior to a marriage through a prenup can go a long way in protecting valuable family assets, particularly in second marriages. Postnuptial agreements can help clarify issues in an existing marriage and provide a couple peace of mind.
