Divorce is a time of dramatic change. Even when it is for the best, it can be difficult to get through on your own. To make sure you are protected throughout the process, it is important to work with a lawyer who has experience and is willing to listen to what you need.
I am Timothy Williams, a divorce lawyer in Mason, Michigan. I understand that you know what you need from your divorce better than anyone else. It is my goal to help you work within the law to achieve a fair resolution.
Focused On Communication
Part of my job as your lawyer is to help you achieve the right resolution for you in the most efficient and effective way possible. I firmly believe that the best way to resolve a divorce is to work with your soon-to-be ex-spouse to reach a settlement you can both agree upon.
Going to court is expensive, time-consuming and leaves the final decision to a judge who doesn’t know you or your children. I understand that you may be concerned about getting a fair portion of your marital assets or having to pay more alimony or child support than you can afford. I can help you find a resolution through negotiations that meet your needs and allows you to move on with your life.
Child Custody: Protecting Your Child’s Best Interests
For many parents, child custody is the most important aspect of divorce. At my firm, your child’s needs come first. I will assess your situation and help you understand what your realistic options are. From there, we will work with your spouse to reach a custody or visitation agreement that works for you and is in the best interests of your child.
Do You Really Need A Lawyer For Divorce?
Unless you have a complete understanding of your rights according to the laws in Michigan, it is very important to have a lawyer on your side. The family law system is not set up to work for people who do not have legal representation. If you do not know your rights, you could end up getting less than you are entitled to. I can make sure that does not happen.
