Rhode Island Child Custody Attorney

Kent County Family Lawyers


Realizing that you will no longer be able to spend every single night with your children is often the hardest part of a divorce. It can also be one of the most hotly debated and complex areas of contention. An experienced, compassionate attorney will listen closely to your goals and concerns while setting realistic expectations that ultimately serve the best interests of your children.



At Assalone & Associates, LLC, our attorney is committed to not only helping our clients navigate the complexity of child custody, but also to giving them an understanding of how the process works. We empower our clients with information so they can make decisions that will support their plans for the future.

Child custody comes in two forms:

  • Legal custody: This refers to who has the right to make health, education and other important decisions regarding the child. Typically, both parents share this responsibility.
  • Placement: This refers to where the child lives. This can be split in numerous ways.

To be frank, the court system cares little about the desires of you and your spouse when making a child custody ruling. Your children’s best interests will always be at the forefront of a judge’s mind. However, if you choose to mediate with your spouse and come to an agreement before walking into a courtroom, your requests will be honored.

Attorney Veronica Assalone has nearly 20 years of experience helping individuals as they navigate the complexities of child custody. She is well-known in the Rhode Island legal community for her fierce dedication to her clients as well as her deep compassion.
