Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is the easiest way to get a divorce.   When spouses agree to all the terms of a divorce they can file an “uncontested divorce”.   An uncontested divorce is the quickest, easiest an most cost effective way to get divorced in Michigan.   A few documents (called a joint petition) are drafted.  Both spouses sign and the documents are filed with the court for final approval.


Building a strong, healthy relationship with your children is crucial to their long-term mental health and development. Studies repeatedly show that children who have two loving parents, even if those parents live in separate households, are better prepared for success in life than those without a loving support network.

At Ferris, Schwedler, & O’Mara, our family attorneys fight for your right to have your fair share of time with your child.

Child Support

Child support is monetary support paid by a parent to assist with the upbringing and expenses related to their child. When two parents are married, it is assumed that both parents are contributing to the support of their children.

However, when parents are unmarried or divorced, child support may be calculated to ensure that the child’s needs continue to be met long-term. Based on your unique situation, you may be eligible to receive support payments for your child or may be ordered to pay them.

Our dedicated and experienced Thumb area child support lawyers can assist you with understanding what your child support obligation may be, or what you can expect to receive.
