Novi Michigan Lawyers
Straight Talk, Not Empty Promises
At Bain & Bain, we’ve built our reputation on being straight and honest with clients. We’re not the type of attorneys who will only tell you what you want to hear in order to run up a big legal bill. We tell you what you’ve got to hear. We’ll recommend options to resolve your legal matter as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. However, we will respect your decision if you choose to take your issue to court rather than accept a settlement offer or plea agreement.
Child Support and Custody
Who will take care of the children? Where will they live and who will be financially responsible for them?These are some of the core issues of divorcing parents, but they are also important issues for parents who have separated and who are already divorced as well as for those who were never married.
Guardianships and Conservatorships
The ideal of a child being raised by two loving, supportive parents is not the reality for many children. While many children are raised from broken or split homes, other children are raised by someone other than a parent, such as a grandparent, aunt or uncle, or other family member.
Relocation and Move-Aways
Raising a child in two separate homes is challenging, especially during the time when the child is with the other parent. When one parent chooses to relocate to another state with the child, this places significant anxiety and strain on the other parent regarding continuation of parenting time and maintaining a special relationship with the child over such distance.
Aside from the emotional toll of a divorce, many individuals find themselves facing financial difficulties after the breakup of a marriage. Spousal support, also known as alimony, is intended to provide the receiving spouse with enough money to maintain a lifestyle similar to that enjoyed during the marriage.
It’s wise to take every traffic citation seriously. Too many tickets can result in a suspended license, revoked license, increased insurance rates, heavy fines, and even jail time. Truckers and others who hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL) may lose their ability to work and earn a living if they have too many traffic tickets.
Juvenile Criminal Law
Criminal charges against minors should be taken seriously — by the young adult being charged as well as by his or her parents or guardians. Without proper criminal defense representation, a simple misunderstanding or a juvenile mistake can escalate and create significant problems in the future.
Driver’s License Restoration
Restoring your revoked license or suspended license may seem like a simple matter that you can handle on your own. That is what many of our clients believed. They represented themselves at the Driver Assessment and Appeal Division (DAAD) hearing, were denied, and were then told that they could not reapply for their driver’s license for another year.
