Advocating For You

The First Mistake

Having unrealistic expectations, or strong emotions that can cloud clear thinking, can actually draw out the divorce process and increase your stress level. Here is when working with a qualified, experienced and determined divorce lawyer can help. "No fault" does not mean there was no fault; it means the reason for the divorce doesn't matter to the state.

The Second Mistake

The second thing most people don't understand is what they are actually entitled to receive. Having an attorney on your side who is both experienced and discerning can make a world of difference as to how smoothly and quickly your divorce is final.

How Much Does Divorce Cost?

This may be the first question people ask when they walk through our doors. It is, of course, case-dependent on the level of complexity and issues in your particular case. When you work with Boroja, Bernier & Associates PLLC, we will assess your situation and give you clear answers about how much each step of the process costs, how much it is to file, what costs are involved in your case and our hourly rates.

At Boroja, Bernier & Associates PLLC, we understand the tenacity required to negotiate and affect alimony, child custody and child support arrangements. We work diligently and tirelessly to get the best for each and every one of our clients.

Divorce Often Costs More Without An Attorney

Some people believe they can effectively represent themselves in a divorce and that by doing so they will save money. However, it's much more likely that by not having a lawyer on your side advocating for you that you will end up paying much more in the long run. The fact of the matter is that if you do not have an attorney working with you and looking out for you, then you are much more likely to be taken advantage of — whether you are paying spousal support or receiving it.

Much of family law and the divorce process involves understanding the "legalese" of contracts and stipulations. Without fully understanding these you can potentially lose funds and property. Not understanding Michigan rules and regulations regarding child support and custody can also cost you lost time with your children and hours of dead-end arguments. An experienced divorce attorney will work to fluidly and successfully negotiate your needs.

Shelter In A Storm

An attorney is so much more than just a legalese translator. An attorney is protection and shelter in a storm.
