Do Not Let The Courts Decide The Terms Of Your Divorce

Right now you’re asking yourself: What happens to my assets? What about the business we started together? Does my divorce have to be decided in court? No. You as a couple can decide what happens to your property without court involvement.

The courts cannot understand the nuances of your and your spouse’s relationship. By negotiating your divorce outside of the court, you and your spouse can make sure that you each keep the things you care about most.

Our Lawyers Are Experienced Negotiators

Alward Fisher Rice Rowe & Graf has practiced in Michigan and the surrounding states for decades. With over a century of combined experience, our attorneys understand that divorce is hard enough without leaving personal family matters to judges to decide. We negotiate whenever possible.

Our practice is extensive, and our background in business, estate and family law helps us give you detailed guidance during negotiations. We help clients negotiate divorce settlements involving:

  • Shared investments
  • Retirement accounts
  • Real estate and other properties
  • Businesses
  • Existing prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

Once you and your spouse have negotiated a settlement, a family law attorney can help you present it to the court to become part of your divorce decree.

Our legal team has vast experience and a reputation for excellence. We bring this to the negotiating table when we advocate for you. Our lawyers provide high-quality service and they are recognized with Martindale-Hubbell AV peer-review ratings, included in Michigan Super Lawyers and known throughout Traverse City and the Midwest.
