Litigating disputes can be a long and stressful process. Whether you are facing a divorce, child custody issue or negotiating child support, the legal battle can take many months and cost thousands of dollars to complete. Litigation also leaves the outcome of the matter in the hands of a judge or jury, often resulting in a resolution that is unsatisfactory to both parties.

Deciding to get divorced is a difficult decision. Unfortunately, it is often just the beginning of a long, emotional and stressful time for couples. Not knowing there are alternatives, couples often turn to attorneys to resolve issues such as property division or parenting issues. Simply finding the right attorney to handle the matter in the manner in which you want it to be handled can be overwhelming. People often feel the need to find an attorney who promises to “fight” on their behalf and to get them the “biggest settlement.” This is a sure-fire way to ensure that your divorce is combative and taxing.
There are many advantages to mediating a Michigan divorce rather than litigating a divorce.
Because mediation is a much quicker process and mediator fees are normally substantially lower than attorney fees, mediation saves money. In addition, mediation avoids costly court motions and fees. Save money for your future and mediation rather than litigate.
