How child support orders can be modified in Rhode Island

The idea behind requiring a non-custodial parent to pay child support to the custodial one centers around the idea that both parents should be required to be equally responsible for the care of their shared child. In certain circumstances, though, situations arise in which either needs of the child or financial circumstances of the parent change, necessitating one parent or the other to request that the child support order be changed.

Helping children feel they belong in both parents' homes

One of the most difficult parts of co-parenting children after a break-up is transitioning them from one parent's home to the other for visits or custody exchanges. There's a lot of advice out there on how to ease these transitions for kids. As with much parenting advice, a lot of it is contradictory.

Child support has specific purposes

Determining the amount of child support that one parent pays to the other can be one of the most bitterly-contested phases of a divorce. If the couple can't work out an amount on their own and the matter goes to a family court judge, the amount of child support is usually based on the income of each parent, how much time the children are spending with the parent with primary custody and the needs of the child(ren) involved.
