Social media has its perks. It’s a great way to communicate with those near and far and to spread a message widely with one small post. Unfortunately, using social media during a Michigan divorce can backfire too, turning an otherwise friendly platform into a firestorm...

The ideas of “peace” and “divorce” do not go together seamlessly for some people. There are couples who are angry, resentful, and unhappy. They anticipate that their divorce will be ugly. But approaching a split with so much vitriol isn’t healthy or productive. Then there are couples who are all in for peace and love – but they discover along the way that things could get a little contentious, even with the best of intentions. It is possible to have a peaceful divorce among the chaos, especially with help from the right Michigan divorce lawyer.

Just Say No to DIY Divorce

There are divorcing couples who believe they are a peaceful pair. They think they can absolutely make their way through a divorce on their own, doing all the paperwork, coming to terms with assets and debts and property and child custody. They think their DIY divorce will be over faster and be less costly. Most of the time, it turns out to be just the opposite.

Besides inevitable paperwork errors, missed deadlines, and difficulty slogging through legal jargon, or maybe in part because of those issues, that DIY divorce is very unlikely to be peaceful. You’ll find that what you considered a divorce bargain or a quickie divorce is anything but, and things can get spiteful very fast.

When you have a divorce lawyer on your side, they’re just that – on your side. And your ex has someone on their side too. You won’t agree to a matter just to stop arguing and move on. You won’t make hasty decisions because you’re confused or uncomfortable. You will make the best possible choices with the best professional on your side – and, ultimately, doing it right the first time around will save you money, time, and headaches.

Consider Mediation

Mediation is available to couples going through a Michigan divorce as an alternative to the conventional court process. If you have mutually agreed to divorce and are prepared to work together, disagree fairly, and be diplomatic about all divorce matters, mediation could be the peaceful way to a split. As an impartial third party, a mediator helps divorcing couples come to their own solutions about how to break down their marriage.

Divorce mediators could be thought of as referees, the final say in the matter, the calm and collected voice of knowledge in the room, the guide and peacemaker. Those are all valuable entities to have in any divorce. It’s important to understand though that a mediator does not take the place of a divorce lawyer. Mediators help couples come to decisions, but mediators are not allowed to give legal advice. You still need your Michigan divorce attorney in your corner, however adding mediation to the proceedings could help speed up the divorce and save you money.
