Domestic Relations

In Rhode Island, the Family Court hears cases relating to divorce, child & spousal support, temporary and permanent alimony, division of marital property, custody of children and protection from abuse.

Miller Scott Holbrook & Jackson serves the Rhode Island Family Courts and is sensitive to the emotional turmoil that families experience when facing issues and making tough decisions relating to your family’s future.

The most common issues present in divorce cases include child custody, monetary child support, and the division of personal items. Family court cases can be some of the most complex types of cases because they incorporate different areas of the law that are unfamiliar to many, including division of real estate, tax implications, retirement accounts and pensions frequently. These are just some of the secondary issues that have to be addressed in order to make a divorce final. Miller Scott Holbrook & Jackson is equipped to handle these complex issues and will help to remove some of the anxiety from the divorce process.

There are other areas of Family Court practice that can impact you both legally and emotionally. Domestic restraining orders, for example, can lead to a change in child custody and a restraint on your ability to see your children. A former spouse may attempt to modify the final divorce decree to his or her benefit. You should always consult with an attorney in these cases, and we are here to help.

Our attorneys will work to make the process of navigating through Family Court as smooth and stress-free as possible, making every attempt to resolve cases before trial.

When the time comes to fight for you and advocate for your interests, we will ensure your voice is heard.
