Sterling Law ably handles most family law matters on behalf of both women and men, married and unmarried, including divorce, separation, custody, parenting time, paternity, pre-nuptial agreements, and personal protection orders. We are closely monitoring developments in the law regarding same-sex marriage and are already representing LGTB individuals. Not only do we pursue these matters in litigation, but we also seek agreements where appropriate using mediation and collaborative approaches. We keep you out of court in your family law matter wherever possible! Our overriding concern in any case involving children is the best interests of the child. We are committed to representing every client with integrity, compassion, tenacity and experience, and we address family law issues efficiently and effectively.
Call Sterling Law at 231-486-0559 / 989-705-2326 for a free family law phone consult. We follow up phone consults with a Case Evaluation.
At a Case Evaluation, we meet with you in person (or by phone if you are unable to come to one of our offices). After an intake interview, we hear the details of your story and your goals. We help you understand your legal rights. After we help you sort it all out, we create for you a Plan of Action identifying your Next Steps to reach your goals. We charge a flat fee of $95.00 for the Case Evaluation. Most people find that the Case Evaluation is extremely helpful. We see these potential clients lift their shoulders back and breathe a sigh of relief when they leave our office following a Case Evaluation.
After a Case Evaluation, if your Plan of Action calls for attorney involvement, you may want to hire our firm to represent you. If so, you can expect to then sign a contract and pay a deposit on your future legal expenses. We will then form your legal team consisting of a Senior Advising Attorney, an Associate Attorney, a Legal Assistant, and our support staff. The team will spring to action to begin work on your case.
