Family Law and Divorce when a Partner has MS

Video 3 ImageWe want to share a series of videos (5 total) that demonstrate how Elder Law attorneys can help those with MS.  The third video focuses on Family Law and Divorce when a Partner has MS.  The disability resulting from MS usually leads to major disruptions of the individual’s social role, psychological well-being, and quality of life, which also means a major impact on family members.  This can lead to marital stress and possibly divorce.   These legal issues require a thorough review of the related legal issues, including child custody, visitation rights, child support, alimony and maintenance.

These videos were produced through the collaborative efforts of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and Stetson University College of Law.  The videos will be posted on successive days.  Or you can go directly here to watch them all at once.

The elder law team at CMDA is experienced in helping vulnerable clients of every age.  We are available to assist younger individuals dealing with a disability or debilitating illness such as MS.  We help our clients maintain quality of life and preserving independence for as long as possible. We hope you find value from these videos.  We also welcome your feedback.  Contact Gene at CMDA’s Livonia office by calling (734) 261-2400 or by email at
