Standing Up For You Throughout Your Divorce

Michigan is a no-fault divorce state, but divorcing clients may face significant obstacles in a divorce depending on how complex their divorce is. Divorce is more than just an ending and a dissolution of your marriage; it is also an opportunity to take control of how the next decade or two of your life will look.

With an experienced divorce attorney committed to your case, you can increase your chances of winning custody battles and protecting and dividing marital assets. At WN Law in Grand Rapids, Michigan, we help divorcing spouses end their marriages with dignity and position themselves to start a positive new life.

Protecting Your Interests

Whether you are concerned about the custody and visitation schedule or the child support and alimony payments, divorce lawyer Renee Wagenaar has the experience and skills to help you get the best possible outcome. Our firm is both aggressive and caring. Our goal is to identify the best way to protect the children in the divorce and ensure that assets and finances are distributed in a fair and equitable manner.

Working Together To Find Answers

In many cases, divorcing spouses know how they want to end their marriage and they agree about most of the stuff involved in their marriage. The firm routinely represents clients in uncontested divorces that cost less, have minimal paperwork and can be processed quickly. On the other hand, contested divorces can be filled with anger and stonewalling, which increase the length of the divorce process, the paperwork and the associated fees. We help clients in these situations as well.

The firm succeeds in assisting clients going through uncontested and contested divorces because we use both mediation and trial. Attorney Wagenaar uses a practical and straightforward approach in her mediation sessions to ensure that parties act in the best of interests of their children and their family, even during a divorce. When mediation and collaboration are insufficient to protect clients' rights and their children, Ms. Wagenaar litigates in Michigan family courts to ensure that clients are heard.

Post-Divorce Modifications

Changing circumstances may mean that earlier court orders are no longer appropriate. It is also possible that your former spouse is failing to uphold his or her end of the deal. In these circumstances, our firm helps individuals enforce court orders and petition the family courts for relief when circumstances change. It is important to have an attorney who can file motions on your behalf and demonstrate why a new custody, parenting or child support court order is appropriate.
