Mediation Services in Grand Rapids
Mediating Your Divorce & Family Law Issues
Are you aware that litigation is not the only way to proceed through a divorce or legal separation? Many of our clients who come to us to resolve family-related legal matters wish to remain amicable and do not want to go through the stress which is often involved in litigation. Fortunately, there is an alternative dispute resolution process known as mediation which allows you and the other party to sort out your differences and come to an agreement without involving a judge and courtroom.
Is Mediation Right for Me?
Mediation is not right for every family, which is why it is important to discuss your options with a skilled Grand Rapids family law attorney. In order to have a successful mediation, you and your spouse (or the other party) must be willing to communicate openly, give full financial disclosure, and be committed to negotiating your issues without involving a judge.
The advantages of mediation may include:
- More private than litigation
- Less costly than litigation
- Less time-consuming than litigation
- Gives you the opportunity to work out differences
- Allows you and the other party remain amicable
- Less stressful for children

My attorney was Michael King for a Custody issue. I was very pleased with his response time, his honesty. When the defense attorney showed up I knew I made a good decision. Michael was ready to go on the day of court while the other side didn't even recognize the defendant. Michael was personable and relatable.- Katrina Wilcoxson
