MI-Resolve: A New Way to Resolve Disputes Online
This is a new service supported by the Michigan Supreme Court's Administrative Office to provide a free, quick and easy means of resolving disputes that are typically filed as a small claims or landlord/tenant case in the district court.
Through MI-Resolve, parties can resolve their disputes with the help of a mediator. Parties can also arrange to meet with a mediator in person or via videoconference. Mediation is a process in which a trained neutral person (a mediator) helps parties identify a solution to a dispute that best works for them. Mediators do not take sides, evaluate claims, or provide legal advice.
To use this service, you must:
- Live, work, or have a dispute arising in Wayne County.
- Have an active email address and access to the internet.
- Agree to the terms listed in the Agreement to Mediate.
The Agreement to Mediate is found on the registration page after parties have completed intake. We'll send a link to register for MI-Resolve after you have entered your and the other party's contact information.
- Be at least 18 years of age.
You do not need to have a case filed in court to use this service.
If you do have a case pending in court, you can still use this service to try to reach a settlement before your hearing or trial date. A mediator will be assigned to your case to assist you in reaching a resolution.
There is no service fee.
This service is most helpful for resolving disputes that involve:
- Claims alleging that money is owed, contract disputes, and neighborhood disputes;
- Landlord/Tenant Matters;
