Family Law

Cases of family law often involve emotional, stressful transitions. Whether you are going through a divorce, or are seeking custody or support, these cases can take a toll on you. That’s why, at Dennis Hurst & Associates, we work with clients in Jackson, MI and surrounding areas, to provide you with the information, support and experienced representation you need to make the best decisions. We advocate with your best interests in mind and will make sure that the outcome allows you to successfully move forward with your life.

Helping You Move Forward Post Divorce or Separation


If you and your spouse are seeking a divorce, let our attorneys protect your rights, children and property while providing you with the support you need during this emotional, difficult time. Our goal is to ensure that you can move forward with your life post-divorce. We will help you negotiate property and marital estate division, as well as custody, child support and alimony. We understand that each divorce case is different, and we tailor our services to reach your individual goals.


We understand how important it is to you to remain an important part of your child’s life after a divorce. Our attorneys help you to understand your custody rights and work to get you the best results possible, whether that be sole or shared custody. In the case of shared custody, we will help you to negotiate visitation schedules between both parents. We also handle custody modifications, including in the case of a change of domicile (a parent’s relocation).

Child Support & Alimony

Divorce can create many financial burdens, especially if a child is involved. We negotiate child support and alimony support, or spousal support. We want you to be able to move forward and maintain your quality and standard of living. Our attorneys will help you to understand the state guidelines regarding child and spousal support. Because every marriage is different, each support case is unique and is treated as such at Dennis Hurst & Associates.


Whether you are a father seeking to prove your paternity, or you are a mother who needs to prove paternity in order to obtain child support from the father, we will work with you. We know how important it is to have a child’s paternity proven, for legal, financial and emotional reasons.
