Issues that arise in the practice of family law can be complex and often entail deeply personal matters of a sensitive nature. Our family law attorneys are recognized as leading practitioners in this field who combine a strong talent for advocacy with sensitivity for the emotional issues typically involved.

Many of the most personal concerns in family law deal fundamentally with the equitable distribution of resources, such as personal property and support payments. In addition, there is the need for fair and sensitive handling of such issues as child custody and visitation rights.

The attorneys at Running, Wise & Ford provide legal counsel and advice to clients concerning divorce, annulment, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, property division, spousal support, child support, custody and visitation. In addition, our lawyers handle adoptions, paternity issues, guardianships, conservatorships and most other legal matters that regularly confront our clients in today's society. We understand and are sensitive to the emotional issues that family matters frequently present. We not only provide legal counsel, but also are cognizant of our client's non-legal needs. We frequently consult with mental health professionals to ensure that our clients are provided with the support they may need.

  • Court Considers Chapter 7 Trustee's Ability to Sell LLC Property in Sole Members Bankruptcy

    Michael I. Conlon

    A bankruptcy trustee has the right to liquidate any property of a Chapter 7 Debtor subject to claimed exemptions and liens. Does this right extend to a membership interest in an LLC where the sole member files bankruptcy? The Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Michigan addressed this issue recently in In re Hopkins, Bankr. W.D. Mich. (Feb. 2, 2012).
