When you and your family are dealing with a challenging legal concern, you need a lawyer who can provide responsible representation and who is sensitive to your family dynamics. At Elkouri Heath PLC, we know that southeast Michigan is home to thousands of Muslim families who are guided by the traditions of their faith and, in many cases, the principles of Sharia law. We also know that it can be difficult to incorporate such considerations into a divorce settlement or child custody arrangement, but we are equipped to help Muslims and their families resolve their most complicated family law matters.

Michigan Muslim Family Law Attorneys

Regardless of a person's religious or cultural background, a divorce is one the most challenging life changes a person will ever experience. Islamic tradition, however, strongly emphasizes the sanctity of marital relationships. Our attorneys recognize this reality, but we also know that a divorce may become necessary for a wide variety of reasons. The skilled family law attorneys at our firm understand that Muslim families may have unique needs during a divorce and often have priorities that are different from non-Muslim couples. We proudly assist our clients in finding Sharia-compliant divorce solutions that take into account the physical, emotional, and spiritual concerns of each spouse and any other interested party.

Attorney Susan Elkouri and Symantha Heath are fully-qualified Michigan divorce attorneys who understand the applicable laws. We are also very aware of roles that faith and tradition play in the lives of many Muslims. We realize that Muslim families typically enjoy a close bond with one another, and a divorce typically affects family members well beyond the spouses and their children. The spouses' parents, grandparents, and even business relationships are often affected as well. At Elkouri Heath PLC, we are sensitive to the additional concerns of our Muslim clients, and we handle each family law case with compassion and an open mind.
