Family Court

Getting divorced is a highly personal, emotionally charged, and complex experience. Knowing what to expect can help ease the stress and create a sense of security at a time when you may be uncertain about your future. Having experienced legal representation is necessary for navigating the complex process of dissolution or legal separation in Rhode Island & Massachusetts.
