WomensLaw.org currently does not have information about custody law in Rhode Island. However, we hope these links to outside sources may be helpful.
Rhode Island Legal Services has information you can read about on the basic custody process.
The State of Rhode Island Department of Human Services' Office of Child Support Services provides the following information that might prove helpful:
- information about establishing child support and calculating a child support order;
- a list (schedule) of how much child support a parent has to pay based on his/her monthly income and the number of children s/he has;
- information about how to modify a child support order, including a pamphlet about this topic and a link to the form to request a child support modification; and
- information about child support enforcement procedures. (Note: If you are a domestic violence victim, you may be eligible to get a child support waiver if you are receiving public assistance and it is not safe for you to cooperate with child support enforcement.)
WomensLaw.org is not associated with the above organizations and we cannot vouch for the accuracy of the information on their sites. We provides these links solely for informational purposes.
