Parenting Time

The more current legal term for child custody is "parenting time." Rather than using verbiage that relates to "custody," the issue is how time is divided between the two parties. The Rhode Island courts encourage parties to resolve all divorce issues, especially child custody and visitation issues through mediation or negotiation methods. This avoids additional time, contention and stress for all parties involved, including the child.

We can help you create a customized parenting time agreement with you and your ex-spouse in a way that can potentially work for both of you. Everything from drop-off times, locations, holidays, vacations, weekends, education decisions, religious decisions and more are determined, so that your child's transition into a post-divorce life can be as smooth as possible.

In the event that an amicable agreement is not possible, we will provide fierce trial representation on your behalf. The family courts will always hold the best interests of the child standard as the threshold for all final divorce decrees, whether at trial or using mediation.
