Spousal Support Attorney in Kent County
Ending a marriage is a difficult and stressful time. There are many issues
to resolve including the division of the marital property,
custody and visitation of any children and both
child support and spousal support. The dissolution of a marriage does not automatically
include spousal support under Rhode Island law. If you and your spouse
cannot come to an agreement in mediation or through negotiations between
the two attorneys, a court will examine a number of facts to determine
the amount and term of payment of alimony. An example of some of the facts
the court will review include the duration of marriage, any misconduct
during the marriage, capability and education for employment, the extent
in which a spouse was absent from the workforce to raise children and
There are several other factors that will be taken into consideration,
and each case is completely unique. I can help you get the facts about
what to expect under state law, and the various options with regard to
a settlement. You may decide a one-time payment will work better and end
the association with your former spouse, or monthly payments would better
serve you. Each person is different, and I would like to speak with you
and go over the various options that could work for you.
