Experience With The Complications Of Subsequent Divorces

Any divorce can introduce significant complications into your life, concerning your children, financial stability, future and more. When the divorce is your second or third, the issues you face may be more complex.

At TJC • ESQ, we have represented a wide array of divorcing individuals across Rhode Island for over 30 years. We understand that just as no family is the same, no divorce is either. We will leverage our sophisticated representation style, cutting-edge technology and considerable experience to efficiently navigate the challenges you face.

Providing Sound Guidance On A Wide Array Of Issues

The issues present in a second or third divorce can become riddled with complications as your family, assets and more grow. We can pursue your best interests throughout several complex issues, including:

  • Property and asset division. When you have previous property division settlements in place, determining marital and separate property can be challenging.
  • Child custody and visitation. A commonly disputed issue, child custody can become more complicated concerning the rights of stepparents.
  • Child support. Rhode Island guidelines dictate child support payments. We can assist when you have existing child support obligations.
  • Spousal support. While not guaranteed, we can assist in either seeking or challenging alimony and when you already have alimony obligations.

As experienced litigators, we will aggressively represent your interests in the courtroom when necessary. When possible, we encourage amicable resolutions to find collaborative solutions either through mediation or negotiation.

Advocating For Your Interests In Complex Child Custody Issues

You may have biological children, adopted children, stepchildren or more. As a stepparent, you may have played an influential role in the lives of your stepchildren. However, many stepparents do not officially adopt their stepchildren. When you and your spouse decide to divorce, the question of whether child custody and visitation are even considered can arise. Do you have any rights?

We can discuss this and more with you. Regardless of the absence of an official guardianship or adoption, you may have rights. These often depend on your specific situation, including the length of the marriage, how active you were in the child's life and more.
