Michigan Firm Provides Effective Divorce Mediation Services

Experienced lawyer works to facilitate agreement among divorcing couples in the Grand Rapids area

Divorce and litigation are stressful processes. Combining the two can seem overwhelming for spouses and their children. Fortunately, an effective option exists for couples who want to avoid courtroom stress when their marriage ends. At Core Legal, PLC, our attorney delivers professional mediation services for divorce and other family law matters for couples in the Grand Rapids area and Michigan. Using the knowledge gained conducting mediations throughout Michigan, we offer comprehensive guidance through this alternative dispute resolution process to help parties settle issues such as custody, child support, alimony and property division.

Neutral third party saves divorcing spouses time and money

Whether you're close to a marital settlement agreement or far apart on divorce terms, a certified mediator helps you dissolve your marriage while avoiding unnecessary problems. There are significant advantages to the mediation process, including:

  • Control — Instead of working on the court's schedule and dealing with their procedural requirements, spouses decide when to meet and what needs to be discussed.
  • Cost savings — Litigation costs can mount quickly, potentially causing financial problems that last long after the marriage has concluded. During mediation, parties can limit what they spend.
  • Privacy and stress relief — A public courtroom is an uncomfortable place to discuss the personal issues often associated with divorce. Our mediator allows clients to speak openly in a private, dignified setting.

Many states have recognized how useful mediation is when a married couple breaks up, so they require mandatory divorce mediation. Whether you're seeking assistance on your own or at the court's behest, our firm has the experience and knowledge to provide valuable support.

Dedicated firm outlines the divorce mediation process

Our mediator has a deep background in family law and can find equitable solutions to the most entrenched disagreements. Though we are neutral and not permitted to provide legal counsel, our unbiased approach helps everyone better understand the key legal issues. We work diligently to ensure that consensus is reached so that both spouses can move forward, confident that the outcome meets their needs.
