Divorce is hard. We ensure that you see your kids and that they are the priority every day.

Child Custody

Determining or changing the custody of children can be a very emotional process for all parties involved. If you believe that a change of custody is warranted, call the skilled attorneys at Buswa & Berry, PLLC.

Child Support

Child Support is governed by the Michigan Child Support Guidelines which are regularly updated. There are many factors that are used to determine a child support obligation. Having an attorney who is familiar with Michigan's child support laws could save you a significant amount of money and even time in jail. If you believe that a child support review could change your child support obligation, let the skilled attorneys at Buswa & Berry help you. We have represented numerous clients at show cause hearings, child support reviews, and throughout the divorce and custody process.

Post-Judgement Modifications

A final order is entered at the end of each family law matter. If a substantial change occurs in relation to spousal support, child support, custody or parenting time following the entry of the final order, then the parties can file a motion to change the current order. Custody, parenting time and child support can always be modified based on proper cause or change of circumstances.

Parenting Time

Parenting time is determined by analyzing the best interests of the child . There is a presumption that it is in the best interests of the child to have a strong relationship with both parents unless it is shown by clear and convincing evidence that parenting time would endanger the child. Parenting time can be agreed to between the parents so long as the court determines that the agreement is in the best interest of the child. The court considers the following factors when determining the duration, type, and frequency of parenting time: (a) The existence of any special circumstances or needs of the child. (b) Whether the child is a nursing child less than 6 months of age, or less than 1 year of age if the child receives substantial nutrition through nursing. (c) The reasonable likelihood of abuse or neglect of the child during parenting time. (d) The reasonable likelihood of abuse of a parent resulting from the exercise of parenting time. (e) The inconvenience to, and burdensome impact or effect on, the child of traveling for purposes of parenting time. (f) Whether a parent can reasonably be expected to exercise parenting time in accordance with the court order. (g) Whether a parent has frequently failed to exercise reasonable parenting time. (h) The threatened or actual detention of the child with the intent to retain or conceal the child from the other parent or from a third person who has legal custody. A custodial parent’s temporary residence with the child in a domestic violence shelter shall not be construed as evidence of the custodial parent’s intent to retain or conceal the child from the other parent. (i) Any other relevant factors. Pursuant to Michigan statute, a parent may request a specific parenting time terms at any time.
