What is marital property?

When couples get married, they often co-mingle their property. This means that they often share money, real estate, personal belongings and other assets completely. They both take ownership over the assets and use them for their benefit and for the benefit of the family. However, when a Rhode Island couple decides to separate this arrangement cannot continue. Instead, the couple must split their property. This can leave couples struggling to decide what property is marital and what property is separate.

Rhode Island courts often don't support shared parenting

People can be very protective of their children and of their time with their children. In today's busy society people may have less and less free time to be with their kids. In the case of divorce, child custody decisions must be made that can further separate a parent and child. This often causes conflicts in these cases as parents fight for more time.

Understanding the basics of child custody

Divorcing couples have a lot of decisions that have to be made before their divorce is finalized. These decisions can have a long term impact on the couple's lives and therefore people need to know how the decisions will affect them going forward. In many cases, the decisions surrounding the custody of their children are very important. Not only do child custody issues affect the parents but they greatly affect the lives of the children.
