High-conflict divorce can be emotionally, financially draining

Whether a divorce is due to a sudden emotionally devastating event or whether it comes after years of fights and disagreements, some Rhode Island couples are relieved to simply put the past behind them and move on.

Some Rhode Island divorce cases involve either a Family Court restraining order, a protection from abuse order or a "No Contact" order from either the Family Court or the District Court.

A person believing this can find themselves being arrested or charged with a violation of a court order that may include jail time.
