When clients visit our Clinton Township-based firm, they often ask how long the divorce process will take. While we can't predict the future, we can tell them that Michigan requires a mandatory waiting period of 60 days for couples without children and 180 days for couples with children. This time can be made longer for couples who disagree about major issues in their divorce — although we try to help our clients avoid long, drawn-out divorces by working efficiently and effectively.
We assist clients making decisions about the following:
Family law conflicts, like divorce, can be some of the most difficult experiences people go through in their lifetimes. Alternative dispute resolution methods can be a good way to take the uncertainty and fear out of the divorce process. When a divorce involves courtroom fighting, a judge makes the decisions and the parties have to live with them. However, when mediation or negotiation is part of the divorce process, people have the opportunity to shape solutions that really work for them.
At the Law Offices of Garton & Vogt, P.C., we take a solutions-oriented approach to divorce. We have years of experience using collaborative divorce methods in our law practice, so that divorcing couples have more control over the results they get. However, we never hesitate to fight when your future is on the line. We have a great deal of courtroom success and fight hard when courtroom action is needed to protect you or your children.
