Service will settle disputes
MARQUETTE — Trained mediators can volunteer at the Marquette Alger Resolution Services, the local community dispute resolution service.
MARS provides peaceful dispute resolution for all types of matters in Marquette and Alger counties. Many of the disputes we help with are parenting time, neighborhood disputes, general civil, child protection, guardianship of children and adults, relationships and school-related issues.
Volunteers provide mediation and community dispute resolution regardless of income level. Mediation services are an accessible program for everyone. Goals include ensuring:
≤ peaceful dispute resolution is available to all citizens;
≤ Marquette has an alternative to court for resolving disputes; and
≤ everyone has access to mediation .
Mediators provide a very important and meaningful service for our community members who are in need. Scholarships for training are available.
