It's difficult to say without knowing more about your circumstances, but as a general rule that's not a problem under the facts you relate. However, it would be a good idea to retain an attorney who is experienced in both Family Law and Bankruptcy Law, as I am, to be sure you are not prejudicing yourself in either Bankruptcy Court or Family Court.See question

I purchased stocks from a joint account while married. The stock are solely in my name. Can they be considered a married asset during divorce? What about stocks cashed out during divorce that were not shared with partner?
As a general rule, in RI any assets acquired during a marriage are considered to be marital assets. If the money came from a joint account to purchase the stock then certainly the stocks are marital assets.See question
I got married back in June of 2015. Me and my wife were only together for less than a year before she decided that she wasn't happy and left. How do I go through with getting divorced and moving on with my life?
The best way to do that is to hire an attorney. Feel free to contact me or any of the other RI Family Court Attorney here on Avvo to discuss your situation.
The alternative is to obtain the Family Court forms for a divorce and file and serve them yourself. It's possible to do it yourself, but not easy.See question

Rhode Island law and the courts do occasionally recognize people in your position as de facto parents and may award them parental rights.

My child's mother is dating someone who is a registered sex offender and i have tried to research laws regarding living situations. We have split custody with a set schedule of visitation for both parents. I just want to know what my rights are as...
A level 2 sex offender should not be living with a child and at a minimum doing so would be grounds for a motion to change custody and placement. This is a serous matter so I suggest you contact the police and/or child protective services and begin the process of hiring an attorney to represent you in Family Court in order to file the appropriate motions.
I encourage you to contact one or more of us here on Avvo directly who have experience in Family Court matters.See question

I was the executor of my father's estate, which is now closed. I am now filing bankruptcy and Medicaid has failed a claim against me to recoup funds paid to my deceased father. Can they do this? And can I discharge their claim in my bankruptcy?
It's not just a question of potential fraud. Medicaid may have had a lien on your father's assets which would not be automatically dischargeable, if it's dischargeable at all.. You should consult with a RI bankruptcy attorney.See question
