Establishing A Custody And Parenting Time Agreement
Your relationship with your child is one of the most important relationships you will ever have, and we understand the need to protect it. Child custody involves determining where the child will live, who will make major decisions about the child’s upbringing and how frequently he or she will have contact with the other parent. Options depend on the circumstances of the parents. Because every set of circumstances is unique, we make sure that parents understand their options. We help find the option that is best for you and for your children.

How Michigan Determines Child Custody And Visitation
Michigan’s Child Custody Act lays out the guiding factors for determining custody and visitation. These factors include:
- Your ability to provide for your child’s physical and emotional needs
- Environmental stability such as stable housing, daily routine and community
- The presence of guiding moral influences on the child
- Any history of domestic violence, substance abuse or other damaging influences
- Other factors as determined by the court
