Child Custody & Support
Divorce is difficult but the related issues of
child custody and support can be even more stressful and emotionally
challenging. Primary physical placement and parenting time (formerly
known as visitation) can be negotiated between the parties, or through
court-ordered mediation if the parties cannot come to an agreement.
Numerous factors are considered when determining placement of a child,
and each family situation is unique. Attorney Laurie Durfee is committed
to helping you make the right choices and dedicated to standing up for
support, the Rhode Island Family Court uses detailed child support
guidelines to determine the amount of child support the non-custodial
parent must contribute to help adequately provide for the child’s needs.
Again, Attorney Durfee is diligent and careful when applying the
guidelines to insure obligations are equitable.
