Uncontested Divorce – An experienced attorney can assist you in resolving your divorce matter or court order in a timely manner, without the financial and emotional hardship of litigation, while still ensuring that your best interests are being served during your legal issues in Westland Michigan and beyond.
Divorce Mediation – Prior to any matter proceeding to trial, parties frequently attend mediation, a form of alternative dispute resolution. Our attorneys frequently attend mediations with clients, where we assist them in reaching settlements, while still protecting their parental rights and with the goal of an equitable property distribution, so as to avoid the financial and emotional stress of courtroom litigation.
Divorces are like snowflakes, no two are exactly alike. The main factor in the length of a divorce is the level of agreement on issues such as child custody and property division. Disagreements that cannot be resolved through negotiation result in litigation, extending the timeline and cost of the divorce.
