All kinds of questions arise when parents face a child custody issue or dispute, and parents can be confused about what their options are. The Oakland County custody lawyers at The Kronzek Firm can help. Contact us online or call (248) 479-6200. Custody concerns may arise because of divorce, legal separation, change of circumstances, or the relocation of a parent. They often involve a wide range of issues, such as where the child will live, whether a parent will have joint or sole custody of the child, and if a parent will have parenting or visitation time. All of these considerations can be mind-boggling and require a high level of attention, skill, sensitivity, and experience.
Custody cases will determine which parent has physical and/or legal custody of the child. Physical custody deals with where the child primarily resides and who takes care of the child on a daily basis, whereas legal custody refers to who makes decisions regarding the child’s education, medical care, religion, and other aspects of the child’s life. Courts can opt to distribute these rights equally to each parent, thereby granting joint custody, or by giving one parent a large majority of these rights, thus granting sole custody. Here in the sixth circuit (for Oakland County) the vast majority of cases have both parents equally sharing legal custody and therefore having equal input into the major parenting decisions.

Underlying child support is the notion that both parents share the duty of supporting their children. To ensure that children receive the proper care, child support is collected to help pay for the expenses associated with a child’s needs; such as housing and utilities, clothing, uninsured medical expenses, transportation, food, extracurricular activities, and entertainment. The state of Michigan now has available an online child support calculator.
This Formula must be used in calculating child support and, in most situations, courts apply it very strictly with little variance and few exceptions. We can help you with child support issues. Contact us online or call (248) 479-6200
Most parents would list children as more important that anything else in life. In many ways, the amount of time you spend with them will define the relationship. For that reason, the decisions that parents sometimes face regarding children and their placement can generate stress, and cause parents to overlook some of the tremendously important issues that may arise. Our Oakland County parenting time attorneys thoroughly consider all issues of any case involving children. We offer parents invaluable advice and legal assistance in resolving such issues, so that parents can get back to focusing their attention on what they love most: their children.

Parenting time, which was once referred to as visitation, is one of the issues that may arise in cases involving children. In Michigan, parenting time is often granted to the parent who does not have physical custody of the children or to parents sharing joint custody. The Child Custody Act of Michigan provides the guidelines used by courts to grant parenting time. One of this Act’s paramount purposes is to promote a relationship between children and their parents. Consequently, the law presumes that it is in the best interest of children for them to interact and have a relationship with both of their parents.

Review by Jason on BirdEye, April 2021
“There isn’t enough characters to type all that this man and law firm have done for me and my now 17 yr old daughter. Lemme tell ya, read all the reviews you want to like I did, and throw out the negative ones. IF you do YOUR part and get ALL the information to this man, you will have NO problems! I’ve never been through a custody proceeding, I didn’t know what to expect. I tried to file for what my daughter needed by myself and ended up being lost in the sauce until I found Mr. Kronzek through a Google search.
Here I am at 43, never needed an attorney, trying to hire an attorney in another state from Maryland, and unsure of what was going to happen. It started with emails, I emailed ALL of my info to Mr. Kronzek, over 70 pages of stuff, this man and team had no clue as to what was what, but with the little bit I attempted to type up and all my notes, they put together EXACTLY what we needed!!!! I was BLOWN away.
Look, You’re gonna get frustrated with whatever you’re facing and there may be times where you think “this guy don’t make me feel very confident” because of how things are progressing, but TRUST ME when I say, BE PATIENT because this man knows his stuff!! As long as you are COMPLETELY HONEST and have your stuff straight. It’s like he has this continuous ability to throw curve balls at exactly the right moment and time. Very respectful and to the point, but he listens to you and your thoughts.
Don’t expect him to sugar coat ANYTHING, as that is not what he’s about. If there’s a chance you could be in trouble, then there’s a chance. He won’t tell you otherwise, but if you do what you’re supposed to, this man and his team will get things done for you and figure it out. Mind you, I’ve met face to face with this man ONE time, the rest of our communication during my case has been via email.
I ALMOST and I mean ALMOST didn’t listen to his opinion of how I shoulda went about something and after it was all said and done, if I hadn’t took his opinion into consideration, and followed his advice I would NOT have had the very positive outcome I had. So if you’re reading this and looking for someone to get the job done, then please go on ahead and give them a call about a consultation right now!
I have no reason to be on here, on a Wednesday afternoon, typing up this long review, other than to give Mr. Kronzek and team a HUGE shout out and thanks for all the help and getting what was needed done!! As well as pass along a HUGE shout out and thanks from my daughter as well. Just.Call.Them.”
