MI Family Law

Full-service family law firm serving Southeast Michigan

Whether you are anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the frustrations of marital conflict, the Law Offices of Matthew A. Courter, P.L.C. can help. I represent clients in Family Court in the following counties: Washtenaw, Livingston and Oakland.  I provide legal services in all areas of family law, including:

  • Adoption
  • Alimony
  • Child custody and parenting time
  • Child support
  • Child support modification and enforcement
  • Divorce
  • CPS/DHS proceedings
  • Mediation
  • Pre- and post-nuptial agreements


I assist families with all aspects of domestic adoptions. I handle the legalities of your adoption so that you can concentrate on your new family.


Divorce should not lead to financial crises. I help you establish an equitable amount of spousal support.

Child custody and parenting time

I protect your parental rights to raise your children in an appropriate and supportive home.

Child support

I can help ensure that you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy environment.

Child support modification and enforcement

Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or noncustodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, I can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.


Through mediation or litigation, my divorce law firm can help you gain the most equitable results from your divorce, including fair distribution of assets, division of marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Child protective services proceedings

I am skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of MI to protect your parental rights from the interference of government authorities.


Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. I can help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

I expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses' interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
