Handling Specific Facets of Family Law

Entering a divorce or any other heated family law dispute is not going to be a straightforward process, not for the most part, anyway. You need to prepare yourself for potential complications. Our Rhode Island divorce attorneys can provide personalized counsel for your family law needs, including:

  • Divorce: The most notorious of all family law issues, divorce is the dissolution of a marriage through legal means. However, it opens up the door for a great deal of other complications that need to be addressed, such as concerns centered on shared children or property. If family law is a structure, divorce could be considered only the foundation. We represent clients in contested divorce and uncontested divorce in Rhode Island.
  • Separation: Not every married couple that wants time apart wants the marriage to come to an end. Time may be required to figure out what should be done. In such instances, a legal separation can be used, which is provides many of the same legal benefits of a divorce without the actual dissolution of the marriage. Sometimes this is the only option for couples who cannot or will not divorce due to religious beliefs.
  • Prenuptial agreements: Before you finalize your marriage, it may be greatly beneficial to you and your spouse to discuss terms regarding what should happen if your marriage does end in divorce. It should be noted that creating a prenuptial agreement is not indicative of someone’s want for a divorce or unhappiness in marriage, but is instead merely the groundwork for a more stable future with, hopefully, less trouble.
  • Postnuptial agreements: A postnuptial agreement is the close cousin to the prenuptial agreement, in that it outlines what should be done in regards to property division, child custody, and so on in the event of a divorce. The only different is that this is a document that is drafted and agreed upon after the couple has already married. Once again, this should be seen as a “safety net” to prevent struggles, just in case, and not as a token of discontent.

Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Cases

Dedicated to helping clients address the impact of abuse, addiction, and mental illness on their children and families, we can help you with domestic violence and children’s rights issues. Attorney Tim Conlon is also well known for his involvement in high-profile clergy abuse cases in Rhode Island. Our firm further handles cases involving teacher and other institutional abuse.
