Almost everyone now understands that their postings on Facebook, Snap Chat, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Instagram (and in all Social Media Sites and platforms) may be unearthed in a divorce proceeding. Pictures and comments may haunt someone in a divorce proceeding. I had a male client, whose girlfriend posted a Facebook picture of her new large diamond ring on the afternoon that the divorce was heard. On the next day, my client's spouse called her attorney about the picture and I received a call from the wife's attorney asking what money my client had hidden in order to buy the ring. Luckily, he had the receipt that he had charged the entire amount of the ring. Clearly, this demonstrates the problems caused by a careless Facebook post.

Steve Jobs said:
Living with a narcissist may be difficult. Through almost 40 years working with people where one of the parties is a narcissist, I learned that psychologists and other mental health professionals have a lot more knowledge about people with narcissistic attitudes or tendencies than I will. Yet, I have worked with couples in divorce mediation where one of the parties is a narcissist nd have found ways to help lead them to a reasonable settlement of their divorce issues.
Interviewing a Divorce Lawyer may not be on your Top Ten Things To Do list. But, if you are reading this perhaps that is where you may be soon.
I recently met a couple who arrived for divorce mediation services, because one party's co-worker advised that mediation was cheaper than hiring a lawyer. As usual, I began our meeting with an explanation of the mediation process (they had been invited to visit my blog).
Working as a Rhode Island Divorce Mediator and Divorce Attorney, I like the Patriots recent rallying cry "DO YOUR JOB." Doing your job leads to success.
Preparing for Divorce Mediation begins with thoughtful considerations about the reason for going to mediation at all. Something happened in the marriage causing you to travel down the road to divorce. That "something" brings various feelings, including anger, fear, resentment, confusion. All of these feelings can be resolved in mediation.
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.
