Family Law Attorneys for Men
Sterling Law Office’s areas of practice include specialization in advocacy and divorce tailored for men. Sterling Law Office has a strong and successful history of representing both women and men in all areas of family law, including divorce.
Through our affiliation with the American Divorce Association for Men (ADAM), we offer legal representation focusing on the unique needs and rights of fathers and husbands. When dealing with a family law issue, whether it is custody, parenting time, change of domicile, spousal support, or other matters, Sterling Law Office finds that all family members can benefit from the dedicated representation of the specific needs of men. The ADAM program at Sterling Law Office pursues fair and equal treatment for male clients in all domestic family law matters. It emphasizes the importance of keeping both parents in children’s lives when there is dissolution of the parents’ relationship. ADAM gives legal guidance to male clients to achieve short and long term parenting goals and other questions arising from a marital separation or divorce, or from raising a child born out of wedlock. ADAM attorneys are committed to the tenet that all family members fare better when parental responsibility is shared. With a long history of robust advocacy for family law clients, Sterling Law Office brings expertise in men’s rights law to northwestern Michigan.
ADAM was founded in 1988 by a group of attorneys in Southfield, in response to the sometimes inequitable treatment fathers and husbands received within the justice system. The organization’s purpose is to offer diligent, experienced, fair and knowledgeable representation to men in all family law matters. Clients are given educational consultation on their rights and choices, before, during, and after family conflicts. ADAM attorneys seek settlements out of court whenever possible, and hold that the best custody, property and other settlements are crafted cooperatively by the parties, not imposed by the court. Because of the experience in working for men’s legal rights, attorneys affiliated with ADAM are often able to achieve exceptional results for their clients. ADAM attorneys at Sterling Law Office raise the level of men’s understanding of their rights under law and of the results that can be reasonably expected in various family law matters.
