Short Form vs. Long Form Financial Disclosure
There are two types of financial disclosure forms in Rhode Island: short form and long form. Your yearly income will determine which form you fill out in your divorce; however, it is important to remember that the length of the form is no indication of the complexity of the property division in your case.
During divorce, marital assets and debts are subject to equitable division. In addition to your income and investments, marital property can include your personal property, home and vehicles. Equitable division does not mean that your marital property will be split 50/50. Instead, the court will decide what is equitable based on the facts in your divorce.
