Protecting Your Financial Interests In Divorce
Rhode Island is considered a no-fault, equitable distribution state. Equitable does not mean equal, but it does mean fair. No-fault implies that either party can file a divorce citing irreconcilable differences, but if adultery or extreme cruelty is involved, property division can be affected. Property is considered more than just the house and your possessions. It also includes:
- Credit card debt
- Negative equity
- Qualified domestic relations orders
- Retirement accounts
The biggest challenge in property division involves assessing commingled assets within the marital estate. Once marital and separate properties are determined, the distribution can take place. At Assalone & Associates, LLC, our lead attorney Veronica Assalone has more than 27 years of experience, and all of our attorneys are extremely detailed in their assessments of property division cases. We understand how important property is to our clients, and we are determined to help them preserve that to which they are entitled.
Attorney Assalone has a proven track record of winning cases for her clients in both criminal law and family law. Clients describe her as, “tough, brilliant, prepared, unintimidated, yet caring and compassionate and unstoppable.”
We will carefully examine your property and assets and explain the process clearly and openly. If necessary, we are prepared to litigate for our clients, and our reputation is well-respected within the Rhode Island community.
