Divorce Mediation is an alternative to fighting in Rhode Island Family Court with your spouse through attorneys.
Instead of court, parties who decide to use our services work with a neutral third party mediator (or attorney) to negotiate issues concerning your divorce (including child custody and support, spousal support, division of assets and debts if applicable).
Divorce without court!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MEDIATION?
You take the control of your divorce away from the attorneys.
Ultimately you and your spouse will be making the decisions that you both will live with, choices that will be entered in your final divorce decree. And doesn't it make sense that you makes these decisions?
Mediation helps preserve a 'fair and honest relationship' with your spouse thus reducing additional tension.
If the parties have children, they typically benefit from such a collaborative approach.
Typically mediation is significantly less expensive than a litigated divorce.
If the case goes to court, the cost is typically four times as high -- (or more).
Mediation is always less expensive than paying two lawyers to fight for each spouse.
Less Time Consuming
Rhode Island Mediated divorce cases typically take considerably less time than a litigated divorce.
Greater Overall Satisfaction
In Mediation the parties are assisted by a mediator to reach an agreement developed by the spouses themselves, not one imposed by a judge or the court system.
Typically those spouses who mediate their own settlement are much more satisfied with their divorce.
In addition, children of mediated divorces may adjust better to the divorce of their parents than children of litigated divorces.
