Practice Areas


The topic of family law deals with many difficulties involving the whole family. Emotions can cloud communication in divorce cases, including issues of custody, support, and property.  During these times, her advocacy, legal advice, and representation can ease many of these stresses.


Methods of custody give the parent the right to decision-making in a child’s major life issues, such as medical care, education, and religion. Legal custody can be sole or joint. In Sole Custody, usually, only one parent has the right and responsibility to make all decisions.

Parenting Time

The time a child spends with each parent when parents do not live in the same home. In Michigan, a child has a right to parenting time with each parent unless a judge determines that parenting time would endanger the child’s physical, mental, or emotional health.

Child Support

Child support is the amount of money that a court orders a parent or both parents to pay every month to help pay for the support of the child and the child’s living expenses. Attorney Laura Anderson discusses the court procedures, calculates child support, and explains court decisions.

Spousal Support

Michigan offers four types of spousal support: temporary, periodic, permanent, and lump-sum (alimony in gross). Attorney Laura Anderson will help you and explain the difficult factors for the court to consider during each case. 

Post-Judgment Matters

For issues that come up after your divorce judgment is entered, you may need to file a motion to ask the court to resolve the conflict. Ask Laura Anderson about your issue and she will try to help guide you into a good resolution.


If your child is involved in a juvenile delinquency case, that means he or she is accused of breaking the law. You have legal obligations as a parent (or guardian). You may also be personally liable for any harm that your child does. Consult with Laura Anderson for these delicate matters.

General Civil Litigation

Consult Attorney Laura Anderson regarding any legal matter you may have. She will try to help you and can refer you to an attorney for certain legal situations.

Separate Maintenance

A court can divide property and debt between a married couple, decide child support, custody, and parenting time, and award spousal support.

Although the processes for separate maintenance and divorce are similar, the couple stays legally married in a separate maintenance action.
