Rhode Island Child Custody Lawyer
One of the most contested issues in divorce is child custody. Disagreements about parenting time, child discipline, child support, educational costs, and other issues may crop up long after the divorce is final. In some cases, the parents may need to go back to court to enforce a child custody and visitation agreement or to amend an agreement when circumstances have changed.
At Robinson & Clapham, our lawyers have more than 50 years of combined experience in resolving child custody issues such as:
- Modifying parenting time agreements when a parent changes work shifts.
- Changing child custody due to drug use or irresponsible behavior of the other party
- Modification of child support agreements due to a change in employment status or income. The amount of child support can be increased or decreased if warranted due to a substantial change in circumstances.
- Enforcement of child visitation or child support agreements
- Educational expenses for children attending private schools and colleges
- Requests by parent with primary child placement to move out of state
In Rhode Island, a custodial parent is not ordinarily permitted to permanently leave the jurisdiction without permission of the court or the other party. Our attorneys have represented both the custodial and noncustodial parents in court actions involving whether it is in the best interests of the child to move out of state.
