Attorney Andrea M. Banfield is a certified family law mediator serving Livingston County as well as Oakland and Washtenaw counties. With her guidance, people engaged in difficult family law matters benefit from a confidential alternative to traditional litigation. Mediation allows parties to a divorce or child custody dispute to set their own schedules and stay in charge of the process.

In mediation, parties who might otherwise be at war in a courtroom have the opportunity to sit together in a neutral location and plan how they will co-parent or how to settle spousal support. This noncombative method helps set a tone of civility for divorcing parents in particular. Divorce does not end the ongoing cooperation necessary between parents who no longer live together. In mediation, their new roles can get off to a smooth start.

As a skilled family law mediator, Andrea M. Banfield focuses on facilitating productive communication between soon-to-be ex-spouses or separated unmarried parents. With both parties vested in arriving at constructive solutions, parties in mediation carry away a sense of accomplishment as well as plan of action that a family law court is very likely to accept.
