Family Law


Divorce can often be overwhelming, frustrating and painful. At Michael Crowder Law we focus on helping you navigate the legal system and resolve all of your essential issues with care.

Contested Divorce

Divorce is not always amicable. A strong, experienced divorce lawyer is a must-have when tensions are high and all parties are not in agreement over the divorce, child custody and property. A contested divorce will require, hearings, discovery, mediation and potentially a trial. If all parties aren’t being cooperative, it is important to make sure you are represented by a lawyer who will fight with your best interest in mind.

Uncontested Divorce

If you and your spouse are in agreement on all aspects of a divorce, an uncontested divorce is your easiest and fastest option. Once you have filed pleadings and other paperwork with the court, the court reviews what has been filed and dissolves the marriage after a short Prove-up hearing.

It is still important to have legal representation during an uncontested divorce. An attorney can assure you have covered all the necessary issues and that you are not giving up any of your rights, especially if there are children involved.

Child Custody and Child Support

Ideally, child custody is determined based on an agreement by both parents. However, if an agreement is not reached, the court will determine custody and visitation based on the best interests on the child or children.
