We Have Answers!
  • What is legal separation?
    Rhode Island refers to legal separation as "a divorce from bed and board." This means that both spouses are technically still married, but are not living together. Legal separations typically last for one year and are a way for spouses to consider divorce without the influence of each other.
  • My spouse and I saved a lot in our retirement fund. How will that be divided?
    During your divorce, anything that is considered marital property will be divided equitably by the court. Equitably does not always mean fairly, however. Retirement accounts are considered marital property and the court will take into account the age and health of both parties, your occupations, and the contributions made to the retirement fund.
  • Will I have to pay alimony?
    Alimony, also called spousal support, is not required in Rhode Island. However, depending on your circumstances, the court may order spousal support for a certain length of time. They will consider things like the length of your marriage, the employment of you and your spouse, your standard of living, children, and the ability to pay alimony.
