Mr. Nesi was able to achieve everything I asked of him. He was professional and an outstanding lawyer. I recommend Mr. Nesi to anyone in need of a divorce lawyer.

I have been through many lawyers in my quest for custody of my children. Chris Nesi is the first lawyer that gave me his cell phone number and actually called me back on the weekends - regardless of the time. Usually, I would wait days for a lawyer to call me back. That's not all, when we got to court, Chris mopped the floor with my ex's attorney!!! I now have sole custody of my children and I am receiving more child support than I expected! I would recommend Chris Nesi to anyone who wants a lawyer who will fight for them and your kids!!! Thanks a million Chris.

I have had past experiences with lawyers, they were too busy to answer phone calls but quick to bill. Chris Nesi was different. He was amazing. He was kind, knowing our case very well, and really cared about our family. Chris Nesi was so wonderful, that i can not find the words to express what a great job he did for us.

This is my first experience with an attorney. I had seen Mr. Nesi in court representing another client. The representation was so great that I left the court room to get his business card, I called him the same day. Chris Nesi is currently representing me and I am thrilled. Chris Nesi is tremendous at what he does.

Child Custody

The term child custody really comprises three separate issues - legal custody, physical custody and parenting time schedules (Previously known as visitation schedules).

Legal custody means the right to make major lifetime decisions for your child. It allows you to have input on decisions affecting your child's health care, education, religion and overall welfare. Most often, courts will award joint legal custody to both parents.

Physical custody refers to where your child resides most of the time. The terms "sole custody" or "primary custody" essentially means the same thing - they both refer to the parent who provides the child's principal home.

Parenting time schedules list the detailed decisions as to when the child will spend time with each parent. They typically cover at least three separate areas - your child's school year schedule, vacation schedule and holidays. By Michigan law, every parent is entitled to a specific visitation schedule, and the court will enforce the schedule if necessary. Some parents prefer to handle parenting time more informally, without a detailed schedule. Because each family has its own unique needs, this is not an area where "one size fits all."
