Rhode Island is an equitable distribution state. Property will be divided "fairly." Of course, each party has his or her own idea about what is fair. Any property or asset that is acquired during the marriage and appreciates in value will be considered. This includes property such as:
- Real property
- Stocks and bonds
If you are a business owner, we are able to refer to certified public accountants and forensic accountants to address the issue of business valuation. Our firm strives to protect your interests and everything you have worked so hard to earn.
Spousal support (alimony) will be considered after property has been divided. Factors that may be considered include:
- Fault of the parties
- Financial and non-financial contribution of parties
- Needs and expenses
- Length of the marriage
- Health condition of parties
- Age of parties
- Earning capacity of parties
Spousal support and division of property are highly complex legal issues. Regardless of which side of the divorce you are on, you will need experienced legal help. Contact the Providence office of Attorney Mark B. Morse to arrange a consultation.
