Little Rock Child Custody Lawyers

Parents want the best for their children, so when it comes to child custody disputes under Arkansas law it is no wonder that they often feel overwhelmed. At Robertson, Oswalt and Associates, in Central Arkansas, we know that family court can sometimes feel unpredictable or even unfair. Our clients can have confidence about things that are under our control. We promise you aggressive dedication to your best interests, thorough preparation of your case, clear and consistent communication, and creative problem solving.

Arkansas courts make child custody decisions based upon the "best interests of the child." Courts encourage, if the parents can agree, joint legal custody whenever it is practical, giving both parents the authority or input to make decisions about how the child is raised. Often, in a joint custody arrangement, one parent has primary physical custody and the other, noncustodial parent has visitation rights.

Knowing our court system, we take a balanced approach to child custody law: our Little Rock child custody attorneys take aggressive action and fight for our clients' rights to see their children, but we also encourage them to be smart, thinking in the long term about the decisions they make. We can also help you petition for a modification when circumstances change or an agreement is not being adhered to and the court should intervene to help.

Although Arkansas courts make child custody decisions without regard to the sex of the parent, they do consider the roles that parents have in their children's lives, like the breadwinner providing financial support or the caretaker at home. For this reason, we work diligently to protect fathers' rights.
