4 Tips to Navigate Back-to-School Post-Divorce

Back-to-school season can be a difficult time for any family. It's always hard getting children to transition out of the freedom of summertime and back into the routine of school. However, this time of year can be even more difficult for families that have recently gone through a divorce.

Establishing a Child Custody and Visitation Schedule Post-Divorce

In the vast majority of Arkansas divorces involving children, the parents will wind up with some sort of shared custody arrangement. Even in cases where one parent gets sole legal and physical custody, the other will usually have some sort of visitation right.

Second Parent Adoptions for Nonbiological Same-Sex Parents

When a same-sex couple has children together, the parents unfortunately do not enjoy all the same rights that heterosexual couples do. Although nothing prevents the couple from acting as joint parents while they are in a relationship, many same-sex couples run into trouble if they later decide to break up. Since the law is not set up to protect same-sex families, usually only one parent has a legal relationship - either biological or adoptive - with the child.

Smoking Pot Can Hurt Your Arkansas Child Custody Case

In recent years, a lot of the social stigma surrounding marijuana use has begun to evaporate. Many states have reduced penalties the possession of small amounts of marijuana, while others have even gone so far as to legalize the medicinal use of the drug. In some social circles, smoking a joint on a Friday night isn't seen as being any different than having a few beers.

Prenuptial Agreements Can Ward Off Financial Conflict in Divorce

Apart from child custody issues, property division is often one of the most contentious aspects of any Arkansas divorce. This is especially true when the couple has amassed a substantial amount of wealth or when there is a significant disparity in the partners' earning potential.
