Family & Divorce Law


Contested and Uncontested Divorce 

The attorneys at Sayer Regan & Thayer LLP handle all kinds of divorces - from nominal uncontested matters to the most serious of divorce circumstances involving complex asset division or termination of parental rights. 

At Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLP we know that divorce is one of the most difficult events in a person's life.  The prospect of divorce, working with an attorney and the actual divorce proceedings can be daunting enough, but couple those with the potential for dire financial ramifications, and you need a strong advocate in your corner. You need someone to help you get through the process and so you can continue to build your life. We know that clear and concise communication is vital. We provide direct answers and supportive guidance to get you through the process as painlessly and as cost effectively as possible while making sure that your rights are protected.  We keep you informed throughout the course of your case and make sure you remain up to date on every development to allow you to fully participate in your representation. 

The attorneys and staff at Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLP understand how the personal issues, negative feelings and frustration involved in family law matters can hinder any possible agreement between the parties.  We believe that this understanding and the years of experience our attorneys have in dealing with these sensitive issues is essential to obtaining a positive result for our clients in all of the following areas: 


Alimony and Financial Support 

Financial support issues are commonplace in divorce proceedings.  But an attorney’s true level of experience and expertise comes into play when there are substantial estates, inheritance or business interests involved.  More complex issues of ownership and possible tax liability must be accounted for when there are significant financial holdings involved.  These issues require a level of attorney expertise not always present in other family law firms.  Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLP has not only the family law practitioners but tax and estate attorneys on staff to help you navigate these more challenging legal issues.


Child Custody and Support 

Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLP recognizes the often detrimental effects of the breakdown of a marriage on children and the problems associated with divorce.  We look closely at both the long and short term financial and custodial needs of the children involved to ensure that their best interests are served and protected.  Our attorneys thoroughly review and evaluate the financial resources of both divorcing spouses to establish the legally required amount of child support due under Rhode Island law.  Our clients can be assured that we will be unyielding in our quest to minimize the negative financial impact on the children of the dissolved marriage. 


Temporary or Emergency Restraining Orders 

The attorneys at Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLP are available for any emergency situation involving family law issues.  We stand ready to handle those urgent situations that require immediate judicial intervention, such as Temporary Restraining Orders to alleviate spousal abuse or Emergency Orders for Support to ensure that the financial needs of our clients are met during the course of divorce proceedings.  We are a mere phone call away when our clients encounter situations that require immediate action. 

While these are the more common family law matters, we how the same steadfast determination in protecting our clients' interests in other, less common domestic matters such as: 

                       Pre- and Post-Nuptial Agreements



                       Modifications Orders 

Family law issues can be some of the most trying and emotionally charged issues in your life.  If you find yourself dealing with any of these problems, the attorneys and staff at Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLP are here with the experience and compassion to guide you through those difficult times.
