Michigan Divorce: Mediation
One of the forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution is Michigan Divorce Mediation. Michigan Divorce Mediation is the process by which two parties, who may or may not be represented by counsel, meet with a 3rd party neutral mediator to help them reach joint decisions. The process requires listening, open-mindedness and hard work. If those considerations are kept in mind, Michigan Divorce Mediation can be successful in resolving property, custody, parenting time and financial support issues
Michigan Divorce mediation is a highly effective way to settle the terms of a divorce without costly litigation. It gives you and your divorcing spouse the power to make the important decisions regarding your divorce in a way that works best for you and your family. The mediation process takes less time than a court battle and costs significantly less, so it can reduce the overall stress of the process.
Most importantly, mediation keeps the parties in control and allows them to take an active role in determining their future. A Judge determining a family case only hears hours of testimony and evidence, but the court decision ultimately affects the children and adults for years to come. A Judge’s decisions can also be unpredictable given the often subjective legal standards applied to family cases.
So, whether you and your spouse are divorcing only after a few years of marriage or have been married with children for several years, do not believe that you are destined to participate in a battle over your children and financial matters. You can resolve your differences amicably and with integrity through the use of Michigan Divorce Mediation.
