RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS

In order to file for divorce in Rhode Island, one spouse must have been a resident of the state for at least one year before filing.

GROUNDS

The State of Rhode Island considers irreconcilable differences, which have caused the irreversible breakdown of the marriage as no-fault grounds for divorce.

Rhode Island’s fault based grounds for divorce include, but are not limited to, adultery, impotence, alcoholism, substance abuse, willful desertion for five years and extreme cruelty.

CHILD CUSTODY

The parents may agree upon joint custody or the court may grant custody to either parent. Although joint custody affords the parties equal decision-making power, it does not necessarily insure each parent equal time with the child.

CHILD SUPPORT

Rhode Island’s child support guidelines apply in virtually every case, unless special circumstances are present. Both parties’ gross incomes and certain child related expenses are taken into consideration when calculating the child support obligation. Child support payments will continue until the child reaches eighteen years of age, and may extend through the child’s secondary education.

VENUE

When filing for divorce in Rhode Island, the proceeding will generally be filed in the county where the petitioning spouse resides.

MEDIATION

In an effort to resolve their differences regarding custody and visitation for divorce in Rhode Island, the Family Court may direct the parties to participate in mediation. Before or after the divorce the parties may agree to submit disputed issues to mediation. The parties may proceed in court on an uncontested basis if agreements are reached in mediation.

FILING FEES

Court filing fees are in addition to the cost of using CompleteCase.com. This cost may vary by county. Please check with your local courthouse to determine the exact amount.
