Your Hudsonville Lawyer For All Estate Planning And Family Law Needs

A Family Law Attorney Who Will Listen And Care

Marriage is a sacred bond that is meant to last a lifetime. While nobody enters into a marriage expecting to one day get divorced, tragically, divorce is sometimes unavoidable.

I’m Hudsonville lawyer Jesse D. Bergwerff, the founder of Parakletos Law PLC in Michigan. I stand by the firm belief that family is a cornerstone of life. Yet, I understand that no one anticipates the challenges that may lead a marriage to end in divorce or a custody situation to develop. If you find yourself facing family-related legal challenges, know that you can turn to me for compassionate support and guidance.

I approach every case with the intent to empower, support and encourage my clients through these challenging life transitions. As a father and husband as well as an attorney, I ground my practice in my strong Christian faith and values. Additionally, my military background has equipped me with the discipline and determination to pursue your goals with excellence.

Types Of Family Law Cases I Handle

You can turn to me for guidance on:

  • Divorce: While I am a proponent of marriage preservation first, when divorce becomes the only viable option, I strive to facilitate a process that maintains respect and dignity for all parties involved. I advocate for collaborative divorce in uncontested cases to minimize conflict and avoid litigation whenever possible. I help clients make informed decisions about issues like property division, child support and spousal support (alimony).
  • Custody: The best interests of children are paramount. I work diligently to ensure that their well-being is at the forefront of any child custody agreement, including pursuing the appointment of a guardian ad litem to advocate for the child’s interests when appropriate.

In addition to divorce and custody, I handle a range of family law matters, including:

  • Adoption
  • Marital and prenuptial agreements
  • Child support
  • Legal separation
  • Property division
  • Divorce and family law mediation

Additionally, I can help you address the estate planning considerations that arise after major life changes, such as divorce and adoption.
