I have been helping couples in Rhode Island get divorced peacefully through mediation for over 20 years. Difficult issues like child custody, property division, alimony, and child visitation issues can all be handled with a skilled mediator outside of the family court system. All divorce mediation agreements need to be approved by the family court, but agreements reached through mediation are not part of the public record. Mediation also allows couple to get divorced with fewer expenses and less emotional divisiveness. If you have questions about divorce mediation I offer a free consultation.
