Finding the right mediator for your Rhode Island divorce

A recent blog post explained that Rhode Island has a very long waiting period in order to complete a divorce. Therefore, the divorce process is longer in Rhode Island than in some other states. However, complicated legal battles and disputes can make the divorce process even longer -- and more costly. To avoid this scenario, divorce mediation can be used. This process will help couples make decisions about their divorce together. This way, couples are coming to compromises that work for their family instead of a judge forcing a decision upon them.

We're separating in Rhode Island. What do I do next?

Whether married or living together, you will face many questions when separating in Rhode Island. You may discover some answers by communicating with your significant other or spouse. The roots of the best solutions are often started by two people communicating. However, anger or distrust may interfere with communications; a third party is often helpful to creating solutions.

Rhode Island has long waiting period for divorce

A divorce is an emotional and difficult decision for anyone. Couples that are experiencing an unhappy marriage may feel a sense of daily stress or other emotional issues. When the decision for the actual divorce is made, there can often be a long road the couple needs to go down before finalizing their separation, especially in Rhode Island.

What are the benefits of mediation in a Rhode Island divorce?

When you are considering divorce, there are a lot of decisions that you have to make. These decisions can have a long-term impact on your future and the future of your family. Because emotions are usually high during the divorce process, people can have trouble coming together with their spouse to settle disputes and make decisions. Therefore, Rhode Island family law courts often end up making decisions for couples.

Children need attention and security following a divorce

A divorce can be a difficult time for any member of a Rhode Island family. However, it can be particularly difficult for children. For kids, often everything they've ever known is being changed. Child custody arrangements mean they are seeing their parents at different times and often in different houses. Their parents no longer live together and may be engaged in some heated legal disputes.

Understanding divorce issues that often arise in Rhode Island

When a Rhode Island couple considers parting ways and getting a divorce, there are numerous issues that can arise and complicate the process. From spousal support to child support to the way property is split between the two, the more disagreements there are, the longer the family law issues are going to take to sift through. A key to make the process as simple as possible is to gather important and reputable information beforehand. This can save time, money and aggravation in the long run.
