Solving the Child Custody Puzzle
Every parent cares for and wants what is best for their children. Unfortunately, the anger and hurt feelings associated with divorce can make it very easy for parents to lose sight of that fact.

Michigan’s Child Custody Laws
With more than 24 years of experience, attorneys at Law Offices of Kelly G Lambert III, PC use their knowledge of the law and the credibility they’ve established within the legal community itself to help its clients preserve and protect the relationship they have with their children.
How will custody be decided in your case? If you and your spouse cannot come to a custody agreement, the answer will depend on how the judge weighs the 12 custody factors set forth in Michigan law. The last of the 12 custody factors is “any other factor considered by the court to be relevant.” Each of the custody factors has been further interpreted by years of case law explaining how to apply each factor in a particular case.
We also handle other matters related to child custody and parenting time, including paternity issues, grandparent visitation, child support and post judgment modifications of custody, visitation and support due to substantial changes in circumstance or relocation after divorce.
