Michigan Paternity | Parentage Law

Traverse City, Michigan Paternity Lawyer Jeanne Hannah

Traverse City Family lawyer Jeanne Hannah has written many articles to help her clients with questions that are routinely asked about the process involved in paternity and custody cases. Ms. Hannah has represented both mother and fathers in cases involving custody and parenting time issues concerning non-marital children -- that is, children who were conceived and/or born while the parents were not married or while the mother was married to another man.

The issues are often different for a mother than they are for a father. A father may want to have custody of a child because the mother intends to give the child up for adoption. On the other hand, a mother may want to prevent the father from interfering in an adoption.

Every case turns on its own specific facts
