Kimberly Grover, Attorney at Law Downriver attorney who provides excellent customer service for reasonable rates in the areas of fami

Operating as usual


So yesterday an email went out to a lot of attorneys either Downriver or who practice family law. I am extremely indebted to all my friends who thought enough of me to forward the emails, or to make phone calls to let me know they had received the emails. The content of the emails are disturbing, and it is clear that the person who sent them is very disturbed, unhinged if you will. I know who is behind them.

You see, on February 12, 2019 one of my clients saw his daughter, aged 5 at the time, for the very last time. The mother decided after that point that he was too dangerous to continue to see his daughter, despite the fact that she was supervising the visits in a public place. After she cut off contact we filed a motion to enforce his parenting time. The court agreed, and due to their judgment stating that his time be supervised (which he agreed to) they ordered that his time be supervised at Growth Works, which is an agency in Garden City, since mom no longer wanted to supervise the sessions. I want to point out that my client did not object to his parenting time being supervised. He agreed to do whatever it took to see his five year old daughter. Mom objected to the supervised parenting time and started making allegations to the court regarding domestic violence in the marriage, despite previously testifying to the court that there was no domestic violence, and previously telling law enforcement that the only person my client was a danger to was himself due to threats of su***de due to PTSD (he is a veteran).

After the Judge ordered that the parenting time would continue at Growth Works mom disappeared with the minor child. There were many motions filed afterwards to enforce the order, but mom refused to even show up to hearings. I want to add that she had representation at both hearings, both very capable and even high powered law firms. We later found out that she took the minor child and fled to Canada. A bench warrant was issued. There were more hearings where mom did not show up, even though now we were in the midst of COVID and she could appear via Zoom. No show by mom.

My client reported his child missing to the Lincoln Park Police who did an investigation and determined that indeed there was a parental kidnapping. We filed motion after motion for change of custody due to mom's disappearance and had little success until we filed an appeal with the Michigan Court of Appeals. That case was won based on the brief (thank you Trish Haas) and the Court of Appeals even questioned why the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office had not issued a felony warrant for the mom. They did so not too long after the opinion. The case went back down to Circuit Court, we were given a court date for our change of custody motion, and finally in January of 2022 we were heard.

The Court awarded my client joint custody based on testimony from many witnesses stating that he had worked hard to recover his mental health and that mom was actually possibly a danger to herself due to her mental health. In the meantime, mom has made a campaign of trying to slander me. She has sent emails to numerous colleagues and Judges using snippets of reviews and my Facebook posts making me sound like a money grubbing lawyer and only caring about lining my pockets. The bad reviews she has a posted have come from people that are either parents of children that I have been appointed as a Guardian ad Litem and have not gotten their way, or one client who actually told me he would rather give up rights to his children than have supervised parenting time. She has accused me of assault and battery, even though the only time she and I were in the same room was in a court room and she was attended by lawyers. She has accused me of harming children, when anyone who knows me knows I am incapable of that and have spent my whole life trying to help people.

In any event, we have had no proof of life for this child since February of 2019. I'm really not worried that she is trying to slander me, or ruin every business I have launched in the last few years. (She has made false profiles on Facebook and Google and made horrible reviews on my law firm page, my resort page, and now on the supervised parenting time page). Honestly, she is far away in another country, (she has left Canada) and I know where she is. If I want to make her life a living hell I certainly could do it. But I haven't. She needs to know that we want to know where Fayth is. Is she safe? Her dad is beyond worried about her. If this onslaught continues I will step up my game. I am not afraid of her and what she is trying to do to me. I have too many clients who have been super happy with their result. One or two unhappy people out of hundreds really does not concern me. My colleagues know who and what I am. I have a good reputation. This woman cannot hurt me. Christine Masters, I am coming for you. Challenge accepted.

Over 40 years ago I was woken in the middle of the night by pounding on my door. My husband and I were managing an apartment complex and this was not an unusual occurrence. What was unusual is that when we opened the door, one of our tenants was standing in the doorway beaten and bloody, telling us she had just regained consciousness after her live-in boyfriend almost beat her to death. We brought her in, called the police, who escorted her to her apartment to get her things and then called a battered women's shelter to pick her up. I asked her to please not come back.

This was not the first time we had to deal with this couple. Rick regularly beat up Linda, appeared at her work and got her fired, ran her over with his car, took wires out of her car so she could not leave, and when she paid the rent told her if she did not get the money back from me she was going to be in big trouble. We all knew she would end up dead if she didn't get out. Her parents took her ten year old daughter away because she just couldn't keep her safe. This story lives in my mind forever.

A few summers after that, in another apartment complex a few towns away, we were woken up in the middle of the night by a man across the yard screaming and yelling at his girlfriend that he was going to kill her, all while he smashed walls and glass. We called the police, they took him away, and she moved out soon after.

While finishing my undergrad, I had a friend who often showed up in class with black eyes and bruises. She finally admitted her husband was beating her and she left him and moved in with her parents.

While going to law school at Wayne I worked at the Free Legal Aid Clinic representing victims of domestic violence. Since becoming a lawyer I have helped several women leave their abusers and start new lives.

I have also helped two men, whose ex-wives or mothers of their children, wrongly accused them of abusing their children get custody of their children.

Currently one of these women has a felony warrant out for her arrest for parentally kidnapping the child. After almost three years we have finally won our case in court, proving to the Judge that my client is not a monster, that the mother is withholding the child without cause, and that her accusations are false. Mom has refused to appear in court, although she certainly could have without revealing her location as we are still in Zoom court. Her own family admits that they have not heard from her, do not know where she is, and is worried about her safety and that of the minor child.

I know mom is out there reading everything I write, and she has started a campaign to leave me bad reviews, stating that I am protecting a child killer, a wife be**er, a psychopath. That I represent abusive men in order to profit off of them, buying myself lavish vacation properties and office buildings. (My office building is not lavish, and the fees paid by the current client, while substantial over three years, does not come close to what I have paid to purchase real estate).

If any of this was true why would she not come to court and submit her evidence? The real reason is because none of it is true. She herself told the Judge when the divorce was entered that there was no domestic violence. She told the police the only person my client ever threatened was himself.

Mom has also participated in a smear campaign against Ann Rudisill of Downriver for Veterans, accusing Ann of assaulting her and posting false videos, when in fact, mom was the aggressor and was told by Wyandotte Police to stay away from Ann.

None of what I am posting is confidential information. All of this was testified to in open court, where mom could have appeared and defended herself. Instead, she hides behind false profiles and posts nasty reviews, sends emails to local dignitaries and besmirches the reputation of two women who work very hard to help people every day. At some point mom will have to answer for her actions. I am looking forward to meeting her in person. I am also anxiously awaiting the return of a little girl to her father, wrongly removed from the State of Michigan, for reasons that are still unclear. The last thing this little girl did was take her father's face in his hands and tell him she will never forget him. I hope that is true.


It's tax time! Are you missing forms such as 1099s, W-2s, K-1s, etc?

Are you having a hard time getting them from the source?

Did you know you can go on the IRS website, create an account, and get a transcript with the information on each form, not only for this year but past years?

I've had to file returns for my kids who had missing forms from prior years and was able to get the information this way.

This is a very helpful tool!


Also, Kim- Alex is absolutely incredible and regardless of what he may tell you— this was a difficult case and I owe Alex all of the Kudos and my sincere gratitude for fighting so diligently for me, always giving me the most solid advice and just overall walking this painful journey with me. Thank you all so very much❤️ Client - Tammi Smith

'This Is Us' cast on Rebecca's gripping speech: 'My 1st reaction was to just applaud'

This is Us provided a valuable lesson to its viewers on the way to make your wishes known in the event you become incapacitated.

Spoiler alert if you watch this show and missed last night's episode don't read further until you see this episode.

Rebecca, the matriarch, is in the early stages of Alzheimers. She gathered her children and her husband, while she still has full capacity, and made her wishes known to them about who will make decisions for her when she is no longer able to make them for herself.

This approach was extremely refreshing to me. It also leaves no doubt about how things will be. So many times parents are afraid to share their decisions, afraid they will hurt someone's feelings. Then, when it is time for their designee to step in, the rest of the family has doubts about choices made and the hurt feelings result in in-fighting.

I can give so many examples of court cases that are initiated simply because the person did not share their wishes with the entire family while they had all their faculties.

I know of one family where mom reduced one son's share from equal (25%) down to 10% due to drug addiction. She never told him. Now that she has passed he is convinced that his siblings pressured mom into doing this, when in fact siblings talked mom out of disinheriting him altogether. He keeps calling me to object, stating he and his mom reconciled in recent years during her failing health and he feels sure she wanted him to get an equal share. He also admits she didn't have capacity towards the end to make changes to her estate plan.

This brings us to another issue, where parents get their affairs in order when they do have capacity, and then as they approach the time when they are elderly, ill, and vulnerable, certain family members start talking to their parents about changing their plans for whatever reason.

I also see this all the time and question the parent about the reason for the change, especially when they were quite clear about their intentions when they were healthy. I can't help but think if the parent had a meeting with their family when they put their plans in place there would be a lot less trouble at the end when they are vulnerable.

So, take a lesson from Rebecca. Do yourself and your family a favor and be transparent. Meet with your family and make your wishes known and clear. It will make everything much easier for you and your family when the time comes.

“You will not make your lives smaller because of me,” Rebecca said in a stirring speech to her adult kids as she grapples with her own health issues.

Do you have your affairs in order? If not, why not?

Bad things happen to people everyday. This morning I assisted a young wife in getting a guardianship and a conservatorship over her husband. He had a terrible accident a few months ago and has been in the hospital with a traumatic brain injury. His mental capacity is that of a 5 year old.

Even though she is his wife, his creditors would not talk to her because she was not on the accounts. It seems more and more these days, due to second marriages, or a number of other reasons, married people keep their finances separate.

So, she had to pay court costs and lawyers fees, guardian ad litem fees, and even bond fees, to be able to handle her husband's affairs.

And the real kicker is, she is not going to be able to do what she wants with his assets and finances. She will have to report to the Court each year and have the expenditures approved. All because he did not have a power of attorney for finance or health care.

These are young people in their 30's. They have a young child. Take a lesson from this family and get your affairs in order!


We always getting flooded with calls for consultations between Thanksgiving and New Years for divorces. It seems that once people get to the holidays they decide they are not going to keep doing this (suffering through another holiday in a bad marriage) and want to get out. If you want to know what your future looks like as a "me" instead of a "we", give us a call. We have a very low cost consultation that will give you all the information you need.

Merry Christmas from the Grover clan.  My wish for all the families who are undergoing family law related issues is that...

Merry Christmas from the Grover clan. My wish for all the families who are undergoing family law related issues is that they can learn to co-parent effectively, even though they will no longer reside in the same household. My kids were 3 months and 3 years old when my ex and I separated. They are now 33 and 36 years old. We still do things together as a family, like celebrate Christmas! It has taken a lot of work on both of our parts to make sure our kids had two parents in their corner. It was worth the effort.


I'm really struggling with something and just need to put this out there.

I have been under attack lately by an opposing party who is slandering me all over town because I represent her ex. I am sure that people who are getting her nasty emails are questioning why I could represent such a monster. (According to her that is what he is. If she had the proof she would actually show up in court, but so far has refused to do so).

Also, I have friends representing the Crumbley parents and I have seen the comments posted about them about "how could they?"

First, I want to say my client is not a monster and he has rights. My friends' clients also have rights. When we became attorneys we swore an oath to uphold the constitution. In fact, here is the oath we swore in total:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm):

I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Michigan;

I will maintain the respect due to courts of justice and judicial officers;

I will not counsel or maintain any suit or proceeding which shall appear to me to be unjust, nor any defense except such as I believe to be honestly debatable under the law of the land;

I will employ for the purpose of maintaining the causes confided to me such means only as are consistent with truth and honor, and will never seek to mislead the judge or jury by any artifice or false statement of fact or law;

I will maintain the confidence and preserve inviolate the secrets of my client, and will accept no compensation in connection with my client's business except with my client's knowledge and approval;

I will abstain from all offensive personality, and advance no fact prejudicial to the honor or reputation of a party or witness, unless required by the justice of the cause with which I am charged;

I will never reject, from any consideration personal to myself, the cause of the defenseless or oppressed, or delay any cause for lucre or malice;

I will in all other respects conduct myself personally and professionally in conformity with the high standards of conduct imposed upon members of the bar as conditions for the privilege to practice law in this State.

I take this oath very seriously. I have never lied to the court. I have never pursued a case that I did not feel was just. I have turned cases down that I did not think had merit. People can tell you they have come to me and I have told them, I don't think you have a case yet (or even at all). I have always tried to settle cases before going to trial ( I do practice family law and am not a criminal defense attorney). I have always advocated for my client to the best of my ability. If a client has tried to pursue a case that I felt was unjust or repugnant I have withdrawn, or did not take the case to begin with if I knew up front.

For criminal defense attorneys their job is even harder. They are on the front lines protecting the constitution. Their job is to make sure the defendant gets a fair trial, that the rules of evidence and the court rules are followed, that the jury instructions are fair, that their clients rights are protected to the fullest extent of the law. Even if they believe (or know) their clients are guilty. That is their job.

So please don't vilify attorneys for doing their damn job. And please be happy we are here to do it. When you find yourself in trouble we will be the first people you call, whether you like us or not.


The truth about attorney fees - this is never an easy subject to discuss. Most people feel that attorneys are too expensive, or trying to rip them off. We get calls daily from people who want a "free consultation" because, well, you know, consultations are always free.

We happen to charge for our consultations. They are a minimal amount, $100 for an hour, for two attorneys to sit and listen to your story and give you legal advice about your particular situation. That is $465 sitting in a room, giving you advice. Your situation is never easy. Family law and probate cases are extremely complicated, everyone's facts are different, and the law is never straight forward regarding these cases.

Now, if you are in an accident, or have a medical malpractice claim, those large firm TV attorneys will sit and listen to you for free. Do you know why? Because they will get 1/3 of whatever you collect. Let's assume for argument's sake you are in an accident and you get the full amount of the auto insurance amount of $100,000. The attorney who sat in the room with you listening to your story (or their firm) will get $33,333.33 in fees, plus whatever costs they incurred out of your award.

In order for me to earn that same amount I would have had to expend a little over 125 hours. Do you honestly think they put 125 hours into your case? I sincerely doubt it.

So, let's look at a real divorce case I recently completed. No children, four year marriage. Wife earned less than $30,000 husband earned over $400,000. He offered her a settlement of $60,000. She came to us and paid the $100 consultation fee to ask if we thought that was reasonable. We told her we wouldn't know, until we did some discovery to find out what had accumulated during the marriage. She did not know what he earned, but he was a doctor. During the marriage there was a house and a medical building purchased. She decided it was worth finding out so she hired us. We ended up getting her $165,000. We billed our fees by the hour. She paid us $2900 for about 11 hours of work. We cannot take cases on contingency. It is a rule in family law. But if I could, and billed 33% for just the difference in the amount I got for her, I would have made $33,333.33 on that case.

Did she think it was worth paying us $2900? You bet! Was she happy she paid that consultation fee? You bet! We have to charge for our consultation fees. If we didn't we would be sitting on Zoom or on the telephone all day giving free legal advice and not earning any money to pay the bills. We also would not be able to work on the cases for the clients that have paid for representation. Unfortunately we have bills to pay, just like everyone else, mortgage payments, utilities, insurance, advertising, telephone, internet, salaries, and payroll taxes. We cannot afford to work for free and we shouldn't have to. No one else goes to work every day and doesn't get paid for the work they do.

When you see those big firm TV lawyers tell you that they won millions of dollars for their clients and it all went to the clients, they are being less than truthful. They are getting paid a bunch of money, 1/3 of the millions of dollars their clients received.

So, this is why we charge for consultations, and it is also why we are worth it. And it is truly a bargain.


Alex Daar, Jennie Grover and I wish all of you a very happy and peaceful Thanksgiving. We are taking a little time off to enjoy the holiday with our families and gear up for the busy holiday season. We are closing on our new building on Tuesday November 30th and will be spending the month of December getting it ready to open the first of the year. We will continue to operate out of our Allen Park location during the month of December. We are all extremely grateful to our clients for trusting us with your legal matters this year and look forward to continuing to serve you in the future. Happy Thanksgiving!


Let's talk about Grandparenting time. There was a healthy debate in one of the community pages about whether or not there are grandparents' rights.

There is a very specific statute (MCL 722.27b) that controls when and how grandparents can petition for grandparenting time.

Basically, if you have two parents who are married to each other, and they have decided to deny the grandparents time with the grandchildren, you are out of luck. The law presumes that two fit parents have the right to decide whether or not a grandparent can have access to their child.

However, if the parents are in the middle of a divorce, are already divorced, the parent that is the grandparent's child is deceased, or the parents have never been married and the father has been established to be the father through a variety of means, then the grandparent has standing to file an action for grandparenting time.

That is just the beginning of this process. The court presumes the parent is fit and can make the decision to withhold the child from the grandparents. Therefore, one way to attack this is to attack the fitness of the parents. If the parents are fit, the grandparent must then prove by the preponderance of the evidence (more likely than not) that withholding the child from the grandparents causes a substantial risk of harm to the child. Finally, if the grandparents can overcome this burden the court must look at the best interests of the child and determine whether or not an order for grandparenting time is in that child's best interest.

These situations are heartbreaking. These court cases are costly. It is best to consult with an attorney before embarking on this legal endeavor. The court only allows grandparents to file these motions once every two years, so if you fail on the first go around you will have to wait to try again.

Our office has in depth experience with these cases. Please call us for a consultation to evaluate the facts of your particular case.

I am honored to be named to Super Lawyers Rising Star list in Family Law for the 6th year in a row. Only 2.5% of attorneys are named to this list each year.


The most important document you could have is a Health Care Power of Attorney. This form allows you to designate who will make your health care decisions for you if you are unable to make them.

It doesn't matter how young or old you are, this document will save your loved ones a lot of time, money and heartache if you become incapacitated and are not able to make these decisions for yourself.

Consider one young lady, a friend of my 33 year old sons, who was in a devastating car accident and has been confined to a bed for the last almost two years, unable to speak, unable to walk, unable to feed herself. Her mother is currently going through Florida courts to be able to be her guardian and to make decisions for her and to get her the help she needs.

Or, we have my client, who I will call Trina. Her husband has dementia and late onset Alzheimer's They have been married for over 17 years. She is a little younger than him but they have a strong and loving marriage. His son decided he didn't like her any more (or really, just wanted to get control of his money) and stole him out of the home and has refused to return him. We have been slogging it out in court since last October trying to get him returned to her. She hasn't seen her husband in seven months! This should not have happened.

Think about who you want to make decisions for you if you are unable to make them, and then get this document done. You will be glad you did.
