Small Claims/General Civil/Criminal
These cases offer a wide variety of disputes, including consumer debts, landlord/tenant issues, used car sales and repairs, neighbor and property and misdemeanor assault cases. We handle referrals from a number of the sixteen district courts in Wayne County.
These cases generally involve disagreements over wills, estates and guardianships of either adult or child relatives. They are particularly challenging, because they often include a multiple of participants with complicated, highly emotional relationships.
The great majority of domestic cases we mediate involve a disagreement between separated parents over parenting time and/or custody. We also handle full divorces and limited property issues in a divorce.
We also handle non-domestic Personal Protection Order referrals from the Family Court. These cases generally involve escalating disputes between neighbors or relatives.
