Rhode Island Property Division Attorneys
Protecting Your Financial Interests in a 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.
Our senior attorney, Veronica Assalone, is proficient in Spanish, French, German, Italian and American Sign Language. Our office assistant speaks Spanish. We proudly serve clients in Kent County and beyond.
MILITARY DISCOUNT AVAILABLE.
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.
