Custody of the Children in Rhode-island

Parents can work together to agree upon joint legal custody. On the other hand, the court can choose to grant custody to either parent with the non-custodial parent having visitation. Even though joint legal custody will award both parties equal decision-making power when it comes to raising the child, it doesn’t mean both parents will have equal time with the children. It is important to resolve all child custody issues in an amicable and agreeable manner to file a divorce as an uncontested divorce and take advantage of the affordable, fast services available from OnlineDivorceSolutions.com

Mediation may occur before or after the divorce is filed, but must happen before the case proceeds to trial. Using mediation may allow an otherwise difficult situation to go through the courts as an uncontested divorce.
