Rhode Island Divorce Lawyer
Legal Help for Divorce, Family Law & Child Custody
My firm, The Law Office of Patricia A. Sullivan, was established in 1981 to provide high quality, compassionate legal assistance in
divorce and other family law matters. For
over 30 years, my firm has focused on helping clients obtain swift, amicable resolutions to divorce issues, including those that involve
visitation, and spousal support. In addition to being a Member of the Rhode Island Bar Association, I am also a Certified Guardian Ad Litem, a Family Court Justice of the Peace, a Notary Public, and recognized as an AV Rated law firm by Martindale Hubbell. I have a broad knowledge of the law that will serve to increase your chances of a successful outcome to your case.
Divorce is a difficult experience in the best of circumstances. Having defended mothers' rights,
fathers' rights, and
grandparent's rights in divorce cases of all types, I understand the emotional and financial strain that the process can cause. My goal is to reduce the impact of the difficulties involved with divorce as much as possible. One of the ways this can be accomplished is by attempting to work constructively with the other party to reach agreeable solutions to divorce matters. An
uncontested divorce will almost always be a quicker and less expensive proposition than a
contested divorce. If you want to move through the family law system harmoniously, without a detrimental effect to you or your loved ones, you need the help of a
Rhode Island divorce attorney who will work to protect your interests without being unnecessarily combative. I will do my utmost to bring about a resolution to your case that does not require courtroom litigation. If you and your spouse cannot agree on divorce terms, however, I am prepared to take legal action in an effort to secure the best possible result.
Divorce Attorney in Rhode Island
Every divorce is different, as are the needs of the individuals involved. There is no "one-size-fits-all" method of helping someone navigate divorce proceedings. While one individual may be seeking a military divorce, another may be trying to obtain permission for
relocation from a court. In representing clients in divorce and family law matters, I take a personalized approach to each case. I provide unique legal strategies for clients seeking to obtain
equitable distribution of marital assets,
paternity rights, and
legal separations. I am also able to address cases involving
postnuptial agreements, and
modifications of custody and support.
