In order to get an existing placement order modified, you would have to file a motion to modify and then prove that there was a substantial change in circumstances to justify a possible modification of placement and that it was in the best interests of the child that placement be modified.
Feel free to contact one or more of us here on Avvo to discuss your situation in a confidential setting. Changing placement is not easy and not something you are likely to achieve pro se, though it is certainly possible.See question
She gave welfare a fake name and told them she doesn't know my whereabouts but I been in his life ever since he was born.
That type of behavior may factor into a custody decision, but the determination would be made based on the totality of the circumstances.

If I can't afford an attorney but need to get my visitations changed with my kids can I go it alone? If I can how do I go about it?
There is no rule against representing yourself, but it can be very difficult to do so. You will need to file a motion to modify visitation and be prepared to demonstrate to the court that there has been a substantial change in circumstances since the last order was entered which justifies the change.
Good luck.See question
We were married in Rhode Island and will have a court date for a divorce in August 2017, I hope to purchase a home by August 2017. Am I safe from him getting any rights to the house when he gets out.
I think you would have an excellent argument to support your position that he is not entitled to any equity in the house. However, without a proper agreement stating otherwise, the legal presumption is that he is entitled to half of the increase in the marital assets from the date of marriage until divorce, and a judge would wonder why you didn't divorce him if you didn't still consider him t be a partner in the marriage and didn't want him to participate in the equity in the house.
I strongly suggest that you contact one or more of us here on Avvo who practices in the Family Court in RI to discuss your situation and evaluate your needs and determine your best choices.See question

You have to take jurisdiction into consideration in regard to child custody/placement, and jurisdiction will reside in the state in which the child lived for the last six months. Therefore, the state you have moved to cannot make a custody/placement decision in regard to your child, unless there is a some kind of an emergency, and even then, it would only be temporary.
However, you could file a motion in RI Family Court asking for custody/placement to be given to you in your new state based on the fact that you are the primary caregiver and otherwise homeless. It would be best to do so with the assistance of a RI Family Court attorney.
I urge you to contact me, or any other RI Family Court attorney on Avvo, directly to discuss representation.See question
I designed and built for her a thriving business. Per our marriage (together for 14 years), I was 50% of the business but trusted our word. I have nothing in writing so I lose all of that. But I know that she hides all cash sales as voids and make...
If this is a Rhode Island divorce and you were served with pleadings, you are not expected to sign anything, other than possibly an acknowledgement of service. You are expected to file an answer, with which you may correct/contest any factual errors. If you want to prove that your wife's income is misrepresented you will need to conduct discovery to do so. If the business appreciated in value during the marriage you would be preemptively entitled to 50 percent of that appreciation, but would have to properly present that to the court.
I suggest you not attempt to address this by yourself and instead contact one or more of the RI attorneys here on Avvo that practice in the area of Family Law. I would be happy to help you as would many other attorneys.See question

The insurance company's determination as to who is at fault will not prevent you from filing suit, but you really need to discuss this with a personal injury attorney to see whether or not you have a viable claim. It's not a decision you should make on your own.

Evidence has to be properly admitted in order for the court to consider it. Your attorney would know how to get it admitted into evidence and if the judge improperly excluded the evidence, your attorney will know whether or not an appeal would be advisable.See question
