Child benefits

Divorce proceedings can be stressful for kids. A separation period can avoid undue stress on children or allow them to finish out the school year before the divorce process begins.

Financial concerns 

In Rhode Island, spouses are prohibited from selling, transferring, or concealing any individual property or marital assets during a separation. In addition to preventing retaliatory spending, a separation can give an unemployed spouse time to find a job and offer a real-time look at each spouse’s finances going forward.

Religious concerns

A separation can allow you to live apart from your spouse if your religion prevents you from getting a divorce.
