Important Information Regarding RI Family Court & Child Support

Please note that all child support matters will now be scheduled via WEBEX/telephonic hearing by the Rhode Island Family Court.

There will no longer be any "in person court hearings" held at Rhode Island Family Court until further notice.

This includes all Family Court locations: Providence, Kent, Washington, and Newport County.

Please do not appear at the courthouse on the date you were previously scheduled.

All cases with a scheduled in person court date, will now be rescheduled for a new hearing date and time.

On the new court date/time listed, you will have your hearing via telephone or WebEx video conference.

You may be contacted by a child support representative about this.

Once the court has completed rescheduling the hearings, you will be mailed a notice with the new date and time. Please follow the instructions included to participate in your court hearing.

Your participation is required.

If you have a court hearing scheduled and you need the telephone or WebEx information to participate in your court hearing you can find that information here.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
