Historic same-sex marriage involving ex-NFL player reported

The well-known words of the classic Elvis Presley song Fools Rush In wafted over assembled guests as Jeff Rohrer’s teenage daughter sang them at her father’s wedding this past weekend in Los Angeles.

“But I can’t help falling in love with you.”

Federal court’s 401(k)-linked bankruptcy ruling affects Arkansas

“Thou shall not commingle.”

Those words serve as a strong admonition to any married individual in Arkansas or elsewhere who seeks to retain the status of so-called “separate” property during marriage. Mixing money or other assets so deemed with “marital” property can render their former status null and subject them to equitable distribution between partners in a divorce.

Case re repossessed vehicles spotlights military legislation

You’d think one of the largest credit unions in the United States would be up to speed on prominent legislation that has long protected active-duty military members against certain financial and other exactions.

The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act is anything but covert regarding the safeguards it spells out for servicemembers who might otherwise confront dire challenges while serving their country.

Get to know the divorce laws in Arkansas

Adobe Robertson9.jpegGetting a divorce is usually not something people want to talk about, but it might be a reality in your life. As such, it is important that you know how the laws affect you.

Arkansas has specific laws regarding divorce. These are not the same as other states in all instances, so be cautious when reviewing what you need to know. Here are a few basic facts to understand about a divorce in Arkansas.

Good go-to sources for discovering marital property concealment

Tax writer and adviser Julian Block notes that many women coming to him for divorce-linked advice essentially fall into three buckets.

One group might be termed “general.” Those individuals seek strategy input on matters that commonly feature in decouplings, such as the division of assets and alimony.

Some widely held prenup-linked notions are just wrong, Part 2

We gave some kudos to rational thought regarding marriages on the near horizon in our preceding blog post. We noted in our October 23 entry that “down-the-road prospects for marital success can certainly owe more to some timely analytical focus than to fuzzy visions of enduring marital bliss.”

That observation serves as an almost go-to drum roll for a spotlighting of prenuptial agreements. Those have had an admittedly mixed reputation in the collective minds of marrying couples in Arkansas and nationally.

Your divorce in Arkansas: Know the basics

Adobe Robertson8.jpegWhile a divorce might sever legal ties between a husband and wife, there are many things you need to do. You'll have to settle your separation by dividing your property and you'll have to come up with custody arrangements if you have a child.

Arkansas law assumes that each party is entitled to half of the marital property. Property includes items such as your home, bank accounts, life-insurance policies, furniture, bonds and anything else of value.

Prenup misconceptions abating, but still common

Couples in Arkansas and elsewhere that are on the cusp of marriage are customarily buoyed by romantic love and hopeful dreams for the future.

Although that is of course understandable, their down-the-road prospects for marital success can certainly owe more to some timely analytical focus than to fuzzy visions of enduring marital bliss.

Arkansas legislators address scourge of family violence

October is national Domestic Violence Awareness Month, something we think merits a spotlight on our blog platform at Robertson & Associates.

Here’s why. As we note on our Little Rock family law website, millions of people – women, children and men – suffer from family violence across the United States each year. They come “from all situations and walks of life, and most never expected it to happen to them.”
