Attorney McKenzie Walters knows children are at the heart of many family law matters, and she is committed to putting their interests first at all times. That’s why mothers and fathers who want the best for their children hire Attorney Walters for their divorce and family law cases.
Attorney Walters has experience with a variety of complex family law matters, including those involving allegations of domestic violence, child abuse and neglect. As heartbreaking as she finds those cases, she’s repulsed by men and women who levy phony allegations of abuse against the other party to seek an advantage in a divorce. She’s relentless when it comes to exposing those kinds of lies, drawing on her experience with the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Unit of the Rhode Island Attorney General’s Office and the Family Law Department of the Volunteer Lawyers Project in Boston.
Attorney Walters also resents when children are used as pawns in divorce and other family law matters, and she’ll remind both sides to do what’s in the best interest of their children – even if her client doesn’t necessarily agree. That’s one of the many reasons clients appreciate Attorney Walters – she tells it like it is. She helps cut through the emotional aspects of a divorce to keep her clients focused on the end result: getting the best possible outcome for them and their children.
Whether representing men or women, Attorney Walters starts by taking the time to understand your particular situation, including your needs and objectives. She then describes your options, outlining the pros and cons of each, before working with you to develop the best possible strategy for your particular case. Her goal is to settle your divorce without the time and expense of a lengthy court battle, and she is a master at the negotiating table. But if things don’t work out there, she is not afraid to argue your case in front of a judge, where she will advocate fiercely on your behalf.
Attorney Walters also aggressively represents men and women seeking modifications of their original divorce, custody or support agreements. If your former spouse isn’t paying court-ordered support or complying with a parenting plan, she’ll immediately file a motion of contempt. If you believe you’re paying too much – or receiving too little – she’ll ask the court for a modification of your child support or alimony agreements.
When it comes to family law matters, especially those involving children, you can count on Attorney Walters to provide aggressive representation on your behalf.
