Child Custody

Doing Right By Your Kids During A Divorce

You don’t want your children to grow up in a household filled with fighting or disagreement. You want to offer the best example to your kids that you can. To be the best version of yourself, sometimes you need to make a major change. For many couples, that could be separation, divorce or co-parenting another way.

While you may not know what this chapter of your life looks like, we can help you figure it out.

At Annette Benson Law, we will put your kids at the center of the discussion about your divorce. We want to do right by your children, so we will consider their needs, commitments and your family dynamic to help you determine the new “normal” for your family. Our attorney is compassionate, assertive and completely honest with you from day one. As your advocate, we’ll work closely with you throughout the entire process, so you’re represented accurately and fairly.

Building The Foundation To Move Forward

In Michigan, Judges look at several factors to determine child custody. For example, they’ll evaluate:

  • The ability of each parent to provide a stable, loving environment
  • The child’s relationship to each parent
  • Where the child goes to school
  • The child’s involvement in social activities
  • A variety of other aspects of the child’s life


In many cases, both parents can provide positive, healthy environments for their children. However, making this determination is never easy. Even in the best circumstances, you may need to provide evidence that you can provide a good home for your child. In the worst circumstances, you may need an aggressive advocate to help you protect your children from a dangerous situation.

No matter what your circumstances are, Annette Benson Law can help. We’ve worked on countless custody cases and fought for parents in both the best – and the worst – scenarios. With our attorney in your corner, you don’t have to worry about not being there for your child.

Divorce can be complicated. If you and your former spouse need to determine child support payments, we will represent your interests to ensure both you and your child are fairly represented.
