Choosing the Right Custody Arrangement For You

Rhode Island family courts prioritize the “best interests of the child,” meaning that arrangements that are best for the child’s emotional and physical wellbeing will be given preference. In most cases, a judge can award either sole custody, to one single parent, or joint legal custody, to both parents. Regardless of the circumstances, you should never agree to a custody arrangement before consulting with a legal professional beforehand.

Different types of custody arrangements can include:

  • Sole legal custody
  • Joint legal custody
  • Physical placement
  • Shared physical placement
  • Split physical
