Positively Influencing Parenting Plan Arrangements

If you are working through a divorce or paternity suit, you may be worried about how custody will be determined and whether you will be able to spend time with your children.

The way child custody, support and visitation rights are handled in southwest Michigan are unique. Unlike most states where the judge is the primary decision-maker regarding custody arrangements, in southwest Michigan, the process is driven by nearly everyone else. Attorneys, psychologists, social workers, parents and children all have a hand in helping to decide who the custodial parent will be.

If you are making child custody arrangements, it is important to find an attorney who understands the specifics of the state and local guidelines. That is exactly what you can expect at Vander Horst Law Office, P.C. With over 27 years of experience, we have the experience necessary to carefully guide clients throughout southwest Michigan through the process.
