  How Divorce and Family Mediation services work. Comparing Divorce and Family Mediation services to the legal system.
Stay in control of your divorce by using Divorce and Family Mediation Services.
Private Mediation allows you to control the outcome of your divorce. Mediators are neutral. They do not represent either party. Each spouse retains their own attorney. Attorneys must advocate zealously for their clients.
Save money by using Divorce and Family Mediation Services.
Most Mediations are done in two sessions totaling approximately four hours. There are no retainers or prepayments: You pay at the time of each session. In the current legal system, each party retains their own lawyer. In Michigan, initial individual retainers are between $1,000 and $2,500 and may not be refundable. Costs of litigation are in addition to the retainers and multiple court appearances may be necessary.
Stop the fighting by using Divorce and Family Mediation Services.
Private Mediation is done in a neutral setting with the couple personally involved. This leads to a fair settlement of issues of custody, visitation, parenting, support and the equitable division of property. When litigated, divorces can become a hostile and bitter way to end a marriage.
Keep your divorce private by using Divorce and Family Mediation Services.
Private Mediation is just that: all issues are settled in private and all negotiations remain out of the public view In the present legal system, negotiations required by the courts are not private, the mediators may report to the court and make recommendations. Others have access to this information.
