A Divorce Attorney Who Puts You First

There are few things in life more challenging than divorce. If you’re separating from your spouse, there are a number of legal considerations to bear in mind. Keeping a clear head during this difficult period can be exceptionally hard – which is why it’s important to work with a divorce attorney you can rely on.

Anne E. Lewis offers robust divorce law services designed to meet the needs of virtually every family. As a trusted divorce lawyer in Grand Rapids, she prides herself on her ability to provide each and every one of her clients with robust, thorough representation. She guides her clients throughout every step of the divorce process.

What Is The Divorce Process?

The subsequent steps in a divorce can vary depending on your case, but they generally follow this order:

  • Petition: The spouse initiating the divorce files a petition with the court, formally starting the legal process.
  • Discovery: Both parties exchange relevant information and documents about assets, liabilities and other essential matters.
  • Mediation: This can help couples overcome sticking points that are preventing them from reaching necessary agreements.
  • Trial (if necessary): Attorney Lewis can offer thorough representation in court if your issues remain unresolved and the case proceeds to trial.

Ms. Lewis specializes in various types of divorce matters, including:

  • Contested divorce: If the spouses cannot agree on issues such as property division, child custody or support, a contested divorce may be necessary. She provides strategic advocacy to protect her client’s interests and achieve favorable outcomes in court.
  • High-asset divorce: Separation involving significant assets requires attention to detail and expert financial analysis. Attorney Lewis has the experience and expertise in complex asset division, ensuring her clients receive their fair share of marital property.
  • Military divorce: This type of divorce has unique challenges, including issues related to service members’ pensions, deployment and relocation. She understands the intricacies of military divorce law and provides compassionate guidance to military families facing dissolution of marriage.
  • Same-sex divorce: With the legalization of same-sex marriage, same-sex couples face similar challenges in divorce proceedings. Attorney Lewis is committed to advocating for the rights of LGBTQ+ individuals and ensuring their legal rights are protected throughout the divorce process.
  • Uncontested divorce: If spouses can agree outside the court, an uncontested divorce offers a more streamlined and cost-effective solution. Attorney Lewis facilitates amicable settlements and helps clients easily navigate the uncontested divorce process.

Divorce is challenging, but working with the right divorce attorney can make all the difference. The duration of the divorce depends on factors such as the case’s complexity, whether it’s contested or uncontested and other Michigan-specific legal procedures and requirements.
