The law office of David Christopher McFarland has served families in Adrian for more than 15 years. We provide family law services across a wide spectrum of areas, including:
Adopting a child brings happiness to families, but when something goes wrong, there is a chance of substantial heartache. The office of David Christopher McFarland assists families with the complex legal process of adoption, so you can feel secure about your child’s future well-being.
Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. The attorneys at the office of David Christopher McFarland help you establish fair and equitable spousal support so you can continue to live as comfortably as you did before your marriage ended.
Child custody and visitation
For every parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. As divorce attorneys, we advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in an appropriate and healthy home.
Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. At the office of David Christopher McFarland, we help ensure your child receives the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing.
Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments remain the same unless the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in financial circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.
Throughout your divorce, we stand by you. We accompany you through mediation or litigation, depending on which is likely to obtain the best possible results for you — including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
When Michigan authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a compassionate advocate who understands the bureaucratic red tape. The office of David Christopher McFarland is skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Michigan to protect your parental rights.
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. Skilled negotiators at the office of David Christopher McFarland can help you obtain the most favorable divorce settlement using mediation.
Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can eventually lead to divorce. We expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
