When is it time to consider mediation in a divorce?

Many divorces are uncontested: the parties have few assets or debts to argue over and they have no children. These divorces can be relatively easy to complete. However, other divorces can be quite contentious. There may be many different assets in question, including complicated issues like business interests and retirement accounts. And, there will likely be children involved in these types of divorces, leaving the soon-to-be ex-spouses to fight over child custody and child support.

Many Rhode Island residents probably think that if a divorce is this contentious, courtroom litigation is the only option. However, there may be another way: divorce mediation. So, when is it time to consider mediation in a divorce?

Well, even though many divorcing couples might think that they have too many disagreements to overcome, the fact is that some people have enough problem-solving skills - and urgency - to consider the benefits of divorce mediation. They know that there might be child-related and financial disputes during the process, but they also know that when they sit down and take the time to think about these issues in a constructive way, they might be able to figure out a solution outside of the courtroom.

At our law firm, we understand that the parties to a divorce may be coming to the table with conflicting priorities. But, we also know that divorce mediation can be a quicker, easier and cheaper option when the two divorcing spouses do their best to attempt to set emotions aside and focus on getting through the process.
