Rhode Island uncontested divorces in my estimation have their own divorce recipe.
What is that uncontested divorce recipe in Rhode Island you ask?
Here is my RI Uncontested Divorce recipe for those who represent themselves in a nutshell.
1. Your own common sense.
2. Your willingness to get some professional coaching.
3. Your ability to follow directions.
Many Rhode Island lawyers will tell you ALMOST exactly what I will tell you. Most RI lawyers who handle a moderate amount of divorces will tell you something like this:
"It's never a good idea to represent yourself in your own Rhode Island divorce matter."
But ALMOST isn't good enough for most people. It isn't good enough for me, and it shouldn't be good enough for you. So what I will suggest to you is this:
"It's never a good idea to represent yourself in your own Rhode Island divorce matter unless you've got some divorce coaching."
Rhode Island divorce coaching is the second ingredient in the recipe I mentioned above.
Notice the common thread in the Rhode Island uncontested divorce recipe. It's not a divorce lawyer. It's YOU!
Your common sense, your willingness, and your ability will determine if your divorce is and will remain uncontested and go from beginning to end without substantial challenges. This works for both the husband and the wife in each uncontested divorce.
To the extent that there is any magic at all in a trouble-free uncontested divorce in Rhode Island, it's YOU!
The purpose of this short article is very focused. If you don't realize that YOU are the magic in any uncontested divorce then you've missed the point.
You can give the credit to a divorce lawyer if you want to, but in the end you are the one who has the power to call the shots, make the decisions, settle your case and either keep it uncontested or make it contested.
If manage to get through the divorce procedure on your own without any professional coaching or legal guidance then I won't be patting you on the back. Why, because chances are better than good that you just lost property, waived rights, or gave up something that was perhaps even more valuable regarding your child(ren), visitation, placement, custody, healthcare benefits, etc. . . that you will never get back. You may have had that one chance and you blew it because you didn't want to get that divorce coaching.
It is your marriage. It is your divorce. An uncontested divorce is your chance to make the decisions and reach a resolution. Sure, get some professional guidance for your divorce regarding the law and the procedure. It's essential.
Yet if you get nothing else from this article, realize the truth.
YOU are the magic in your Rhode Island uncontested divorce!
