Thoughts

It is not always necessary to litigate. Litigation is costly and should only be pursued if the benefits exceed the costs. Never pay a lawyer more than what you will receive in return.

Please do not call if you are hoping to "take someone to the cleaners" or to "rake someone over the coals". Rhode Island's Family Court Judges and Magistrates are very fair and work within certain parameters within which cases are generally decided.

I do not give Guarantees. Beware of Guarantees.

Bullies should not be rewarded in a divorce. Physical and emotional abuse often cause people to "walk away with nothing or next to nothing", so as not to antagonize an abusive spouse. I will try to discourage anyone walking away with nothing or next to nothing.

Marriages and divorces, although very different, are both important. Only you will know which is best for you. I will not encourage or discourage decisions made to marry, remain married or divorce. I will give you my best advice when you have made your decision.

Do not hesitate to let your attorney know if you and your spouse decide to reconcile or to attempt reconciliation.
