Usually, a divorce mediation takes 3 - 6 sessions, depending on the number of issues presented. Of course, a divorce with no minor children and no real estate can be resolved quicker than one with minor children, one or more parcels of real estate, a small business, retirement assets, investments, credit card debt and some non-marital assets. We serve all of Rhode Island, including East Greenwich, Narragansett, Cranston and Warwick. Actually, we are ready to service everyone in RI.
Each session can lest from 90 to 120 minutes. Steve does not suggest mediation sessions that start after 3:00 p.m. Experience has shown that people are tired at the end of their work day and that interferes with good listening and negotiation. The best time for mediation sessions may be in the morning are early afternoon. On occasion, Steve will mediate on a Saturday morning so you do not miss too much time out of work.
