A Certified Domestic Mediator Leading A Mediation Team In Grand Rapids

When you are confronted with a family law dispute, going to court isn’t always the best option. Litigation is often reserved as a last resort for disputes that can’t be resolved by any other means. Many times, however, mediation can successfully resolve family law disputes between reasonably amicable parties, which can save time, money and heartache.

I am attorney Brandon Gardner, and I am certified to mediate any domestic relations case in Michigan. My mediation services are also personalized to meet my clients’ unique needs and challenges.

What Does Domestic Mediation Cover?

Domestic mediation can cover any family law dispute you may encounter, such as divorce, child custody, property division and related legal matters.

Some of these issues can dovetail into each other, as in the case of a divorce that would necessarily require resolutions for child custody, property division and other issues. Domestic mediation can also address any isolated family law matters that may arise.

How Does Domestic Mediation Work?

Domestic mediation works by having opposing parties to a dispute meet with a third-party mediator, who helps the parties come to an agreement. The mediator’s role is to facilitate discussions between parties without making decisions or offering legal advice that could favor either party.

I am a certified mediator in Michigan. With my support and the support of other domestic mediation lawyers I work with in Grand Rapids, resolving your family law dispute outside of court is more likely.

Is Domestic Mediation Successful?

In Michigan, judges will often order people involved in family law disputes to go to mediation before hearing a case.

That said, mediation doesn’t always work. In situations where it doesn’t succeed, one or both opposing parties may be unwilling to make necessary concessions to reach an agreement. Complicated family dynamics and estates can also increase the level of challenges faced in domestic mediation.

Turning to litigation as the first-and-only solution, however, is generally inadvisable. If you are involved in a domestic dispute, consider contacting me at my Grand Rapids office to learn more about the domestic mediation process.
