My husband and I are on bad terms, can we file for divorce separately in Rhode Island?

Additional Information:

Do a husband and wife both have to be present to file a joint petition for an uncontested divorce in Rhode Island?  Do we have to go together or can we go separately?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

You may go separately but there are legal requirements that must be met if you go alone.
