Mediation

Ann Arbor, Michigan, Divorce Mediation Attorneys

Litigation is a time-consuming and expensive process that ultimately allows the courts to decide what is in your best interests in a divorce. Mediation, on the other hand, offers a quicker, more affordable and less confrontational approach to resolving matters to everyone's benefit. At the Kline Legal Group, our attorneys understand the importance of taking the time to make the right decisions regarding your future.

Attorneys John K. Kline and Elizabeth A. Kitchen-Troop have completed the 40-hour domestic relations training and an eight-hour domestic violence screening training required to be named on the court-approved roster of Washtenaw County mediators. Elizabeth has also completed an eight-hour advanced mediation course.

A Healthier Approach to Divorce

In divorce mediation, couples work together to make decisions that benefit the whole family. Our lawyers advise and represent clients in an informal meeting, with their spouse and their lawyer, to peacefully address such issues as:

  • Child Custody - protecting rights for the custodial and non-custodial parent
  • Parenting time (visitation) - preserving valuable parent/child relationships
  • Child support - ensuring parental responsibility for the children's needs
  • Alimony - providing practical economic relief for a lower-earning spouse
  • Property division - equitable distribution of homes, 401Ks and other assets

While parents may end their relationship as a couple, they are still part of a family, with mutually beneficial concerns between them. Any part of a divorce decree that can be determined through litigation can also be settled through healthy negotiation in mediation. The decrees will still be finalized in court; mediation, however, sets a healthy example of the kind of cooperation your family will need for success in the years ahead.

Our firm offers more than 40 years of combined knowledge, skill and experience resolving divorce and other legal concerns for clients throughout Michigan. We provide the personal attention you need to stay informed throughout your case so that you can make sound decisions and protect your rights - and those of your loved ones.
