Only you know what is best for you and your family. You can trust our Grand Rapids divorce attorneys to listen to you and discuss your desires and goals for your case. We will educate you on the law, counsel you on the specific issues in your divorce case and advise you every step of the way.
A divorce can take many different paths to resolution. In cases that involve minor children, our divorce attorneys will first look at how the divorce will affect the children and what the best interests of the children are. We believe that parents pledging to resolve their differences in healthy, non-adversarial ways are choosing the best way to assist their children in overcoming the scars of divorce or family division.
At Peterson Paletta Balice, we are proud to have divorce attorney Terese Paletta on our team. Not only is she one of very few lawyers in Grand Rapids who is a certified Child Welfare Law Specialist, but she also has extensive experience and training as a parenting coordination mediator.
Our divorce lawyers recognize that the child-first approach is not the solution to all divorce cases. When tensions are high or no minor children are involved, this approach may not be appropriate.
In such situations, our attorneys are skilled litigators and are able to enter into traditional negotiations. We’re always prepared to take the battle to the courtroom if necessary.
After speaking with one of our divorce attorneys during your initial consultation, you will have a better understanding of the divorce process and how you wish to proceed. We will be able to answer questions for you and advise you so you can make informed decisions regarding your divorce case.
