Protecting the Interests of East Providence Families in a Variety of Family Law Cases

For any of the following family law matters, you can turn to me for help:

  • Divorce – I assist clients who are filing for divorce or responding to a complaint for divorce. Whether the case is uncontested or contested, I will put more than three decades of experience as a skilled negotiator and litigator to use.
  • Property distribution – Rhode Island is an equitable distribution state, meaning that when spouses end their relationship, their marital property must be fairly – but not necessarily equally – divided. I can work closely with you to negotiate a fair property division or to advance your position in court.
  • Child support – Rhode Island child support guidelines use various factors such as the financial resources of both parents, the child’s standard of living, the time the child spends with each parent and the needs of the child to determine an appropriate amount of support. I can file a child support action on your behalf, seek to modify an existing order or enforce an order if you are not being paid the amount of child support you should be.
  • Child custody – Nothing is more important to you than your relationship with your child. At the Law Office of Frederic A. Marzilli, I will work diligently to ensure that you have a meaningful relationship with your child. I know the ins and outs of the Rhode Island court system and can advise you on the steps you should take to increase the chance of a favorable outcome.
  • ChSpousal support – If you and your spouse have different earning potential and resources, you may be able to secure spousal support. We can discuss your legal rights during an initial consultation.
