If you’re reading this blog, then you’re probably committed to finding the Kalamazoo divorce lawyer who fits your needs. So let’s start at the very beginning.

What exactly are your needs? Have you been blindsided by a spouse who has already filed for divorce and hired the toughest lawyer in town? Has he or she emptied the bank accounts and run up unpayable bills? Or, have the two of you just drifted apart and you’re working together to reach an amicable agreement and all you want is someone to help you with the paperwork? Somewhere in between is a divorce proceeding that has some real issues to be contested, but both of you are afraid that a court battle could get out of hand and create permanent animosities and expenses neither of you really want.

So what do you do? Where do you and your spouse fit in this scheme?  Do you need a gunslinger or a mediator? If you look at my website, you’ll see that I handle the mediation side of divorce settlements. Couples come to me when they want to avoid a fight, keep relationships in working order for the sake of the kids, and to keep expenses down. Sometimes they do have major issues and and an  inability to work them out between themselves without the help of a neutral third party.  Mediation helps them.

If I review your situation with you, we will determine if mediation will work for you andyour spouse. If not, then I can recommend the right kind of lawyer for your needs.
