Issues in Divorce and Custody Cases
Legal Separation : Few people understand how legal separation is viewed by Rhode Island family courts so we’ve provided an explanation for you.
Property Division and Alimony : Unless you had a prenuptial agreement that specified property division and alimony, you will need to decide these issues in your divorce agreement. We will help you through the process of documenting and valuing marital assets and debt and negotiating a fair property settlement agreement.
Child Custody and Support: Child custody and child support decisions made together. Rhode Island child support guidelines consider each parent’s income as well as the child custody arrangements when arriving at a final award of support. Our Warwick child custody attorney helps married and unmarried parents negotiate parenting plans that are specific enough to avoid problems but customized enough to meet the unique needs of their children and families.
Post Divorce Issues
Modification of Court Orders : Child custody and child support orders may need to change as your child grows and your family situation changes. We help clients obtain a modification of existing court orders – or fight the proposed change.
Domestic violence: We handle domestic violence issues with care, helping clients with restraining orders and complaints for protection from abuse.
