GRANDPARENTS' RIGHTS IN A DIVORCE

In a divorce, there can be a great deal of fighting. Unfortunately, these disputes can drag extended family in, or distance them from the divorcing couple. When a divorce separates grandparents from their grandchildren, they may wonder what they can do to remain in their grandchildren's lives. Luckily, many courts recognize the importance of the grandparent-grandchild relationship, and may reward visitation rights to grandparents, if appropriate.

IS RHODE ISLAND AND EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION OR COMMUNITY PROPERTY STATE?

When couples go through a divorce, they will need to divide their assets and property. The way property is divided can vary from state to state. If you are going through a divorce, you will need to understand your state's laws and how they will affect your divorce. There are two methods of division: equitable distribution and community property. Some states observe community property, but most states follow equitable distribution.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR A DIVORCE

Before a divorce can occur, a couple has to prepare for one. Dividing two lives can be an involved process that takes considerable amounts of information, negotiation, and financial resources, so it is best to approach your divorce with a plan.
