At The Smith Law Offices, P.C., we understand your concerns about the costs – financial, emotional, and psychological – of resolving family law issues through litigation. We strive to provide affordable representation that protects your wellbeing and bottom line while asserting your legal rights.
One of the best ways to amicably resolve family law matters such as divorce, child custody, and child support is through mediation. We are happy to note that we offer the services of Samantha Smith Dickinson, a certified family law mediator. She works with men and women at all stages of the process, providing a stable and unbiased mediator to facilitate the resolution of challenging family law issues.
Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution that brings parties together in an attempt to amicably resolve differences before proceeding to trial. Mediation offers a way to reach settlements on complex issues while reserving the right to pursue litigation if an agreement cannot be reached. A certified mediator’s role is to facilitate discussion and movement toward a workable settlement that can resolve areas of disagreement. It is common for each party’s attorney to also attend mediation sessions.
Mediation is particularly useful in situations where the parties will need to maintain a workable relationship for the purpose of co-parenting, or for parties who lack the disposable income to resolve their issues in the courtroom.
We look forward to helping you find a solution that protects your legal, financial, and personal interests. Call our Westland office at 734-547-6734 or contact us online to take the first step towards a mediated solution.
