Dissolving a Common Law Marriage In Rhode Island

Common law marriages, once formed, are treated like any other marriage—which means a couple in this type of union must file for divorce like a traditionally married couple. However, before you can file for divorce, you and your attorney must work together to prove that the common law marriage actually existed. Usually, this involves providing evidence of the requirements for a common law marriage, including:

  • photos and videos
  • social media posts
  • financial records
  • multimedia communication (i.e., text and email records)
