Too many people see divorce as an enemy. If you're a staunch catholic or have a family history where divorce is seen as taboo, then divorce becomes an evil. Coping with divorce is often about coming to terms with what it truly is and what it means. Marriage is a wonderful thing. There is no doubt about it. I have a wonderful woman that I love and I would give my life for in a second. Yet marriage is a legal bond recognized in different ways. In some cultures marriage is recognized as part of… [read post]

In my years of practice as a Rhode Island Divorce * Lawyer I've seen my share of lawyers and their tactics for settlement. Their tactics give a significant insight into their views on the philosophy of settlement if they consistently take the same approach. All in all I can understand and appreciate why the public looks at most lawyers with a sense of distrust and even disgust. Each person who comes to see us as lawyers has a certain objective in mind and they come to us as the profession whose job… [read post]

If you don't know about Rhode Island divorces and how they are processed or the laws that guide the family court, that is understandable. However, knowing your divorce lawyer's philosophy about divorce can make you or break you. A divorce lawyer should know what his or her own philosophy is and it is a valid question to ask what a lawyer's divorce philosophy is when you interview lawyers to represent you. What is a philosophy? It is the underlying thought process and guiding principles by which a… [read post]

Rhode Island isn't the only state that is feeling the financial pinch from the national economy, but we're feeling it well enough. The investment market is bottoming out while the US Dollar continues to lose strength and popularity as the national currency standard. Rhode Island has one of the highest unemployment rates in the United States and devastation from the March 2010 flood caused billions of dollars of damage to the Rhode Island economy. Financial pressures are one of the greatest causes of… [read post]

It's one thing not to have enough money to hire a lawyer for representation in your divorce. It's another thing altogether because you simply don't want to pay a lawyer ANY money at all to make sure your divorce is done right. The fact is, that divorce lawyers exist for a reason and serve a valuable purpose. The law is often not all black and white. Yet at times even one word makes a difference. Jacob (not his real name) came to me after he and his wife completed their own divorce by agreement and… [read post]

Rhode Island Divorce Coaching is a new concept but it is not to be confused with RI Divorce Mediation. Rhode Island Divorce Mediators provide an atmosphere and services that facilitate the parties in a divorce to be able to reach an agreement for use in a divorce. The agreement is typically called a Marital Settlement Agreement or Property Settlement Agreement. In a Rhode Island Divorce one of the most crucial aspects of reaching a successful conclusion is arriving at some type of settlement… [read post]

Whether you are a Rhode Island lawyer who practices divorce or a client looking for good honest representation, it's hard to know who is who on the internet, especially with all the internet fraud going on. In the past two weeks in between spending time with my wife at her hospital bed at the Rhode Island Intensive Care Unit (who were magnificent to her by the way), I had the misfortune to receive calls from a closing attorney for a RI Real Estate transaction, as well as a Rhode Island resident who… [read post]

As the founder of a divorce coaching program one would think that I am one who would say that divorce lawyers aren't necessary. Yet the answer is actually to the contrary. Yes, they are absolutely necessary. The law regarding families and domestic relations is far from simple and it is evolving as fast as possible to keep up with the changing times. First you have what might be considered the old fashioned notion of a family. This is the typical mother and a father who are married and have children.… [read post]

No. One man called and wanted my price for a "completely uncontested Rhode Island divorce." I told the gentleman I don't provide quotes for Rhode Island divorce matters over the phone and that with all due respect, his case may or may not be a completely uncontested divorce. The man became very angry and told me he didn't like being jerked around. I explained to him that I have been through this process myself before I even became a lawyer and I had no intention of jerking him around and was not… [read post]

Are you curious as to why most divorce lawyers are unable to answer your divorce questions with a great degree of accuracy. This lack of accuracy is due to several factors. I call them the "X Factors." Some lawyers may not discuss these factors with you, but it is important that you understand they exist. Yet these divorce factors are just as important as the rules that govern the Rhode Island family courts themselves. The divorce "X Factors" are simply unknown factors. A divorce lawyer usually… [read post]

When you are your own Rhode Island divorce lawyer you represent yourself and you have the opportunity to make your own mistakes. This is the unfortunate part of representing yourself Pro Se. So that my message isn't misunderstood, let me be clearer than I have perhaps been in the past. Rhode Island divorces aren't always simple or easy even if they are uncontested or when you "think" they are uncontested. Some Rhode Island divorces that are uncontested can be made easier and simpler. Keep in mind… [read post]

When trying to resolve your Rhode Island Divorce the idea is to reach a settlement that both parties are in agreement with. There are two forms of settlement agreements namely, oral and written. When the agreement is oral, the terms of the Marital Settlement Agreement are confirmed before the family court judge with the court stenographer taking down the details of the agreement and the parties testifying to the terms of their agreement. When the parties divorce agreement is committed to writing,… [read post]

Most divorce lawyers in Rhode Island know that divorce settlements are a matter of give and take, offers and compromises. Yet as a RI divorce lawyer there are settlement aspects that frankly I wish didn't exist but are a reality of the process. Alimony as part of a marital settlement when it isn't warranted from a legal perspective is sometimes one of them. Yet, this is a perfect example of how as a Rhode Island Divorce Lawyer, or even more economically as a Rhode Island Divorce Coach, I could be of… [read post]
