Individuals living in Rhode Island in most cases must have been a resident of the State for at least one year prior to filing their Complaint for an Absolute Divorce. However, there is an exception regarding the ability to file for a Divorce from Bed & Board, which allows for an immediate filing when you haven’t met the one year residency requirement. Contact Attorney Frank Flanagan if you have any questions regarding your Rhode Island Divorce residency requirements.
