Early on in a Michigan divorce case, status and settlement conferences occur in order to help the divorce move forward and closer to settlement. When both parties in a divorce have retained lawyers individually, the attorneys – and sometimes the soon-to-be ex-husband and wife themselves – meet with one of the judge’s referees in a status conference. A settlement conference is similar to a status conference but instead of meeting with a judge’s referee, the parties and attorneys meet with the actual judge assigned to the divorce case.
