RI Divorce Mediator & Lawyer On "Revenge Porn"

Many couples, use their cell phones to take photos/videos of themselves and partners in various forms of undress and performing certain sex acts.  Usually, these photos/videos are taken with an expectation of privacy, that they would be shared only between the parties (often husband and wife). These photos can be used as revenge in a divorce.  In a recent episode of HBO's "The Newsroom", one newscaster was mortified when an ex-boyfriend posted compromising photos of her online.

Rhode Island residents realize that divorce can be a very challenging time. Divorce not only affects the spouses involved, but the children as well. The ability to help children through a divorce may serve a dual purpose in also assisting the parents to get through the transition.

People going through a divorce expect to receive a share of marital retirement accounts. Lawyers use Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO's) to split 401(k), 403(b) or other retirement plans.  Can you consider other uses for this retirement plan, including payment of child support arrearages?

Usher's Child Custody Emergency

Nothing creates more emergency child custody petitions at Family Court than one parent feeling that the other has neglected or intentionally mistreated a child. Oftentimes, it is just a method of getting a temporary upper hand until a full hearing can occur before a Judge. In the Rhode Island Family Court, one parent can allege that there is an emergency situation that should change the custody and parenting plan (visitation) immediately and even stop the other parent from seeing the child on a temporary basis.
