Mediation is appropriate only when each party can:

  • speak for himself or herself.
  • reach & carry out agreements.

You should consider hearings in court (rather than Mediation) when there has been:

  • a Personal Protection Order (PPO).
  • child abuse or neglect.
  • domestic violence.
  • the use of fear, force, violence or intimidation by one party against the other.

If any of these "red flags" apply to your situation, please call:

  • YWCA Domestic Crisis & Counseling Center (616.459.4681 or 616.451.2744)
  • Kent County PPO Clerk (616.632.5067), or your local circuit court clerk 
  • National Domestic Violence Hotline (800.799.7233)
