Where to turn in Rhode Island for your divorce mediation needs

Does getting a divorce in Rhode Island mean you never have to have any communication with your ex moving forward? Not usually. Especially if you and your ex have children together, there will be at least some communication with regard to parenting, for example, during drop-off and pick-up times, or when it comes to making joint decisions regarding the child. In addition, as time marches on, life happens. Children grow older, you or your ex may get a new job or get remarried.  You will both attend your child's marriage and you will share grandchildren in common.

Despite any hard-feelings surrounding the divorce, it is usually in the best interest of all involved to develop a way to make decisions in an amicable manner. This is especially true for those who have a child. It hurts a child to see his or her parents fight or bad-mouth one another. Your relationship with your ex changed after your divorce, so your type of communication with each other may also need to be changed, in a way that is in the best interests of the child. You do not need to love each other, but you should be able to talk to each other in a respectful manner.

You may think that the only way to work through life's changes with your ex is by going to court, which can be time-consuming and expensive. There are other options. Some couples find divorce mediation to be a good way to resolve their child custody and financial issues. It can be a constructive and quicker way to come to an agreement that you and your ex are satisfied with, rather than having to turn to a judge to make a decision that pits one spouse against the other.
