Fathers' Rights During Divorce
Fathers who are married to the mother of their children have certain rights during a divorce. These include:
- Being involved in decisions regarding the children's education
- Being involved in medical decisions regarding the children
- Having time with the children
When possible, children need the love and guidance of both parents. When parents separate, children can feel stressed and confused if one parent is not involved in their daily life. Our firm can help you protect your rights as a father and make sure your voice is heard during your divorce or paternity matter.
Fathers' Rights During Child Custody
Fathers also have certain rights during child custody matters. In Rhode Island, courts are required to consider the best interests of the child when determining custody. This means that, when possible, the child's best interests are served by keeping both parents involved in their life. Courts will take into account the child's bond with both parents as well as the parents' willingness to share custody. Fathers may request sole custody or joint custody, depending on their situation and wishes. When deciding custody, courts will consider each parent's fitness as a parent. This means that a father may be denied custody because of a history of domestic violence or substance abuse.
Our firm can assist you in ensuring that your parental rights are protected during a divorce or paternity matter. When possible, children benefit from having both of their parents involved in their lives. Our firm can help you assert your rights as a father and make sure your voice is heard during your divorce or paternity matter.

A Sense of Belonging
We treat all of our clients with compassion, dignity, and respect. With our team approach, we really are all in this together and our clients experience the extraordinary difference and benefits of our unique approach to practicing law.
At most law firms, one lawyer will show up to represent you if your case goes to trial. With our team of lawyers, you get the entire team, as needed, for the cost of one lawyer. This provides excellent representation as well as a strong sense of support.
Because our attorneys each have unique backgrounds and skills, our team approach helps us make sure that every facet of your case is considered and covered. We also get to know you and your unique needs to build a case that meets your goals.
With most firms, one attorney will handle every aspect of your case, even the small things that could be handled much more efficiently by a junior lawyer or paralegal. We use the least expensive resources needed to get the job done and we pass these savings on to our clients.
