Toughness and Support When You Need It Most

Divorce

Divorce

Whether one has been served with Michigan divorce papers or is contemplating filing for divorce, the process of ending a marriage is a difficult and stressful one. Barry County divorce attorney Carol Jones Dwyer has over twenty years of experience guiding clients through this life-altering process, empowering them and advocating for them.

Marriage is a legal relationship, but it is also a social, emotional, and economic one; it touches every aspect of one's life. The same is true of divorce. Going through a divorce affects personal relationships, including parenting; it creates financial upheaval and generates strong emotion that can cloud the decision-making process. 

Carol Jones Dwyer understands that when people are going through divorce, they have many questions about the future. With her extensive legal experience, she advises clients on each step of the Michigan divorce process. Carol takes the time to listen to her clients and to offer thorough, honest answers to their questions about divorce and the related matters of child custody, child support, parenting time, spousal support, and property division.

Michigan Divorce Advocacy

Carol Jones Dwyer believes open communication with her Michigan divorce clients is essential.  Each client has different circumstances and needs. By taking the time to understand her clients' concerns and goals, Carol can help them explore their divorce options and make the best decisions. 

For people going through a divorce, the divorce is usually the central event in their lives. Carol has handled countless divorces in her decades of practice, but she never treats a case as routine. She understands what her advocacy means to her clients, whether in settlement negotiations or at trial.

Many people don't realize that the vast majority of divorces in Michigan, including Barry County, are resolved though settlement; only a small percentage go to trial. Because Carol Jones Dwyer understands both Michigan divorce law and her client's objectives in each case she handles, she can advise her clients as to whether settlement, continued negotiation, or pressing forward toward trial is in their best interests. An experienced litigator, Carol is comfortable in the courtroom and has a reputation for toughness and results. She will settle a case only if it is the best option to serve her client's goals, never simply to avoid a trial.
