SHOULD I MOVE OUT WHEN GETTING A DIVORCE?

The first thing you might want to do after filing for divorce is move out of your family home and get some time and space away from your ex-spouse. This is entirely understandable but also generally discouraged by divorce attorneys and legal professionals. Whether you realize it or not, packing up and shipping out on your own accord can seriously and negatively impact your side of the divorce proceeding.

RHODE ISLAND DIVORCE LAWS: THE BASICS

Divorce is a trying time for the toughest of individuals. Even people who have only been married for a year or so can feel the pressure and emotional struggle that accompany divorce.

FOUR FACTORS TO CONSIDER BEFORE FILING FOR DIVORCE

There are relatively few divorces that spring up out of one single and troubling event, and even fewer still that then follow through to completion. For the most part, divorce is a long, arduous process, in both how it can pan out in court and the thinking, debating, and inner-monologues that lead up to the decision to finally file the paperwork. If you keep finding yourself pacing back and forth, unsure if divorce is the right solution for your marriage problems, here are four factors you should consider, review, and re-review to help you make your choice.

According to their findings, March and August saw much more divorce filings than any other month in the year; November and December were consistently the lowest by a noticeable margin. (You can view their results here in an article from The Atlantic.)

THE DO'S AND DON'TS OF DIVORCE

Divorce can be an incredibly emotional and confusing experience. Amidst the tumultuous change and sadness that this experience can bring, a divorce can sometimes prompt individuals to lash out or engage in different behaviors than normal. This can be dangerous, however, as your actions during this time can have a considerable impact on the outcome of your divorce settlement. In order to keep yourself in good standing and avoid costly pitfalls, it is important you stay in control of your actions and be aware of the "do's" and "don'ts" of divorce.

AN OVERVIEW OF RHODE ISLAND CHILD CUSTODY LAW

Some of the most complex and emotional types of family law disputes revolve around child custody. When a child's parents divorce or separate from one another, they must make decisions on how they will share parenting responsibilities, where the child will live, and how the child's time will be divided between each parent. If the parents are able to agree, the courts will usually approve their decision. If not, the courts may step in and make a decision on their behalf.
