Alternatives to traditional divorce representation

We All Need A Champion

Many Michigan residents who are going through a divorce might want to represent themselves in court because they think that they cannot afford to retain an attorney. This is known as pro se representation. However, they may be concerned that going forward in this manner will create a huge disadvantage for their case.

Our firm offers services which can cost divorce litigants less than full-scale representation to help them navigate a courtroom battle successfully. For example, divorce mediation is an alternative to litigation. Mediation occurs outside a courtroom and is focused on finding solutions that are mutually agreeable to both parties.

Litigation coaching is another alternative we offer. In a courtroom, every word counts. We can use our experience to help people who are proceeding on their own understand how their case is likely to proceed. We can help them feel prepared walking into a courtroom so that they know what to expect.

A third way we can assist pro se litigants is by drafting pleadings and other documents. We might have clients who are going to court sign their own name on the documents whereas traditionally, attorneys sign pleadings for clients they represent. We can advise them about how things are likely to proceed in court without an attorney appearing on their behalf.

If you cannot afford full-scale representation, you are invited to meet with us in order to see if there are alternatives available to you. Divorce coaching can give you the comfort in knowing that you might be able to anticipate what the other party will attempt to do. If you are interested in learning more about the services that we might be able to provide, you are invited to read our page on the subject.
