Full-service family law firm in Westland

When you're experiencing the pain of marital conflict, or facing another legal issue close to home, we listen to your needs, understand your concerns, and help you reach solutions to your legal problems.

The Law Offices of Jennifer S. Peterson-Ramsey has served families in Westland for more than 15 years. We provide legal services across a wide spectrum of areas, including:

Child support
Child support modification and enforcement
Domestic abuse
Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. We help you establish fair and equitable spousal support so that you can continue to live as comfortably as you did before your marriage ended.

Child support
Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. At The Law Offices of Jennifer S. Peterson-Ramsey, we help ensure that your child receives the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments remain the same unless and until 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.

Domestic abuse
Whether you allowed your emotions to take over and have made threats or attempts to physically harm another person, or a bystander to your argument called the police unnecessarily, you will most likely be arrested for domestic violence. Michigan law requires police to make an arrest when they are called to any domestic disturbance. Fighting these charges also involves fighting an automatic negative bias against you, and it is vital to retain a skilled, experienced and diligent criminal defense attorney to defend you.

At the Law Offices of Jennifer S. Peterson-Ramsey, our more than 15 years of experience handling domestic violence and domestic abuse cases has equipped us with the skills to provide the reliable legal representation you need. From start to finish, we examine the circumstances of your arrest, talk to witnesses and build an effective defense that may help you secure the optimal result possible against your domestic violence charge in Michigan.

Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. As skilled negotiators, we 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.
