Overview

Jackie Dupler is a family law attorney, practicing predominately in domestic relations including custody, divorce and support.

Jackie handles a wide range of family law matters, from straightforward divorce cases to difficult family situations involving substance abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault, mental health, co-parenting and financial difficulties. She also handles complex asset and debt issues, such as business ownership, self-employment, and complicated retirement accounts and pensions.

Jackie works directly with clients from pre-filing divorce through the entire process, including Friend of the Court preparation and hearings, discovery, mediation, emergency motions, negotiation, trial and appeals.

Jackie is skilled at compassionately yet firmly advocating for her clients, understanding that every family is different with unique wishes and outcomes. Through a tailored yet effective approach, she encourages resolution where possible. However, when resolution cannot be met outside the courtroom, Jackie confidently and assertively represents her clients and promotes the best interests of Michigan families through legal action.

She understands that legal matters regarding divorce, custody, parenting time, child support, and spousal support are far-reaching with significant ramifications. Because of this, she works with her clients to not only obtain the best results regarding their case but also helps prepare them for real-life changes.
