If you're a married father, the children of your wife are automatically considered to be yours under Michigan law. No additional paperwork is required to establish your rights as a father. However, if you're an unmarried dad, you need to step forward and claim your parental rights.
If there is one thing we have discovered in our time serving Westland residents, it is that many people do not have a full understanding of family law. They think that representation during divorce is the only service family law attorneys provide. In truth, lawyers working in this field handle a wide range of legal issues. We want to help you understand just what a family law attorney can do for you and your loved ones.
