ONLINE DISPUTE RESOLUTION
During this challenging time of the COVID-19 crisis and in accordance with Administrative Order 2020-14, all court business is to be conducted remotely as much as possible until the court has resumed full operation according to the Michigan Supreme Court COVID-19 Guidelines.
In order to accommodate your civil or landlord/tenant matter as expeditiously as possible, the 27th District Court is strongly encouraging you to attempt to resolve your matter through the online dispute resolution platform MI-Resolve
Through MI-Resolve, parties can go online to negotiate directly with the other party, or have a CDRP center mediator help them resolve their dispute. If the dispute is resolved, the system produces the necessary court forms for filing in the individual courts. Importantly, the service is free, involving no cost to the parties or court.
NOTICE TO LITIGANTS/ATTORNEYS:
During the Covid-19 crisis, you may wish to consider trying to resolve your dispute through MI-Resolve, a new dispute resolution system sponsored by the Michigan Supreme Court. After registering on the system, you can either directly negotiate with the other party, or have a mediator help you identify options for resolving your dispute. If you reach an agreement, the system will generate the necessary forms for you to file with the court. If the other party does not wish to use MI-Resolve, or if you do not reach an agreement, your right to pursue your matter in court and to have your case heard by a judge is not affected. The process is confidential: the court will know only whether you participated in MI-Resolve if the case was ordered by the court and/or if the case was resolved. This means that if you are able to resolve your dispute online, other than ensuring that the proper forms are brought to court, you may not need to appear for further court events. The process is free and available online 24/7. You can access the system through a PC, tablet, or smartphone at:
