Michigan Divorces

The decision to end a relationship can be very traumatic and emotional. Parties may experience an array of emotions such as fear, resentment, doubt, betrayal and anger. The decision to divorce affects children and family as well. For those contemplating divorce, or those parties who have already filed for divorce, mediation can be a great alternative to litigation.  Learn How We Can Help Mediate Your Michigan Divorce.

Michigan Child Custody

Child custody mediation allows parents to focus on the needs of the child and to resolve child custody issues based on their understandings of the family situation rather than complying with the court’s imposed decisions. In addition, the non-adversarial nature of mediation helps reduce the emotional impact of divorce on the child and parents, encouraging post-divorce cooperation.  Learn More About Michigan Child Custody Mediation

Michigan Child Support

The Michigan Child Support Formula governs child support. The formula takes into consideration a number of factors, including the income of the parties, childcare costs, health insurance, and the number of overnights the child spends with each party. One would believe child support to be a fairly simple calculation, however, the truth of the matter is, child support is one of the more difficult issues in divorce mediation because it is often tied to other emotional issues.  Learn How We Can Help With Michigan Child Support Issues

Division of Property

The division of marital property can be a crucial, challenging and emotional issue in a divorce. Many issues come into play while dividing property. The determination of what constitutes the marital estate, the financial situation of each spouse, the length of the marriage, the standard of living established during a marriage, the income and earning potential of each spouse and the needs of children are just some of the factors which need to be considered in order to reach a fair and equitable division of property. Michigan Divorce Mediation aids parties in making fair decisions regarding these issues in a collaborative, non-adversarial way.  Learn How We Can Help With Division of Marital Property

Parenting Time Schedules

Many factors need to be considered in order to determine the length, frequency and type of parenting time. These factors may include any special circumstances or needs of the child, the age of the child, the inconvenience to or burdensome impact on the child of traveling to and from the parenting time, any health or medical issues of a parent that may affect that parent’s ability to exercise parenting time, and the likelihood of abuse or neglect of the child during the parenting time.  Learn More About Parenting Time Mediation

Spousal Support (Alimony) Mediation

Spousal support can be a very challenging and emotional issue for parties. Spousal support is intended to balance the standards of living and help the receiving spouse’s transition toward becoming financially independent. Thus, it is important to focus on the need the spousal support will fulfill for the requesting party. Mediation allows parties to brainstorm options and come up with a solution that best meets the needs of both parties.  Learn More About Spousal Support Mediation

Post-Divorce Dispute Mediation

Mediation is a great way to resolve post-divorce disputes. Due to the continually changing circumstances and needs of both parties and children, adjustments to parenting time plans, child support, spousal support and child custody often become necessary. Parties move, change jobs, children grow older and schedules change. Mediation offers a less expensive, non-adversarial and faster alternative to the litigation system and allows parties to retain control over their futures.
