When it comes to divorce in Newport, Rhode Island, many couples wonder if hiring an experienced divorce lawyer is best or if divorce meditation is the route to go. The simple answer to this question is that it will vary on each couple and the circumstances surrounding your divorce. Do you two agree on parts of the divorce or do you not agree on anything at all? If you can, then a divorce lawyer may be a great choice. For those that can’t agree on most facets of their divorce, divorce meditation, and a meditation attorney may be the best choice.
