Divorce

Your Divorce Can Be Diplomatic

You and your spouse have decided to end your marriage. Our East Providence, Rhode Island, law firm understands the pain and anguish associated with divorce. We pride ourselves on taking the high road when helping you with your divorce.

We will not try to stir up emotions and pit you against your spouse. We can work one-on-one with you to ensure that your expectations are met. We will try to provide you with a satisfactory, diplomatic outcome.

Diplomatic Divorce Process

Our legal team, headed by attorney Robert M. Brady, has one main goal for your divorce: reaching a diplomatic resolution that satisfies both parties. We will identify all your assets and debts and then try to reach a balanced solution.

Our goal is for each party to carry their fair share of debt and assets acquired during the marriage. We can help you and your spouse find an equitable, balanced solution to:

  • Asset distribution
  • Alimony, or spousal support
  • Child support
  • Credit card debt
  • Outstanding loans and debts
  • Property division

File Vs. Trial

We can discuss your situation to help you decide between filing paperwork with a lawyer and going to trial. Taking your divorce through the trial process can be time-consuming and expensive. Most proceedings take six months to over a year. You would also have to cover court-related fees.

Our legal team can usually calculate your likely trial award within 5 percent. We can help you determine whether that possible award is worth the cost of taking your case to trial. If we believe trial is in your best interest, we will devise the strongest possible strategies to provide the optimum outcome.

Common Law Marriage

Rhode Island recognizes common law marriages. If you filed joint taxes or listed each other on life insurance or health insurance plans, you could have a case for equitable divorce under common law rules. Common law marriages are rare, so please call or email us about your unique situation.
