Certified Domestic Mediator in Grand Rapids
Resolving Family Law Matters Outside of Court
When 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.

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.
Our founder at Brandon Gardner & Associates, PLC is a certified mediator in Michigan. With his support and the support of our other domestic mediation lawyers in Grand Rapids, resolving your family law dispute outside of court is possible.
Is Domestic Mediation Successful?
A majority of family law disputes are resolved through domestic mediation, which means it can be successful for a lot of people.
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. Consider reaching out to our domestic mediation lawyers in Grand Rapids to learn more about this process.
