Rhode Island Divorce Details

Rhode Island Residency Requirements

You are required to be a resident of Rhode Island for at least one year prior to filing for divorce.

Grounds For Divorce

Rhode Island is a no-fault divorce state. In a Rhode Island no-fault divorce the spouses agree that irreconcilable differences have caused the irremediable breakdown of the marriage.

Filing Your Rhode Island Divorce

The basic steps for filing for a divorce in Rhode Island are as follows:

  1. You review, sign, and file the initial divorce documents with the Family Court Clerk.
  2. You then serve your spouse with the divorce documents and provides him/her with the documents he/she needs to complete and file.
  3. Both spouses and a witness (who can testify to your residency) attend the divorce hearing.
  4. After waiting the required 90 days after the divorce hearing, the judge finalizes the divorce by signing the Final Judgment.

Division of property & debt, child parenting plan (including child support, visitation and custody), spousal support, and more are covered.
