Michigan Mediation

Divorce, spousal support, child custody — you may think the only way to settle these types of issues is through expensive court proceedings. Fortunately, there are other dispute resolution options, such as mediation, that can be more cost effective and less adversarial.

Johnsen Wikander, P.C., can help you understand how alternative dispute resolution can benefit you with your family law matter.

Helping You Work Together Toward One Goal

Mediation ultimately keeps the court out of the equation by arranging for both parties to work with a neutral third-party mediator in order to resolve issues including property division, spousal support, child support, child custody and parenting time.

Mediation encourages effective communication and, when successful, teaches both parties valuable skills that can be used to handle future disagreements.

Because mediation is solely based on the ability of both parties to communicate in a fair and respectable manner to come to a conclusion together on the issues being disputed, mediation is not for everyone. Sometimes litigation is a necessary step to fully resolving your legal matters.
