It is important to know your rights (and limits) in child custody

Child custody is one of the most important aspects of divorce for most Arkansas parents, but if you don't know what your rights are and where those rights end, you could find yourself in big trouble. In most child custody cases, parents will receive joint custody. Some parents, in an effort to get sole custody, will try to sabotage the other parent in court, yet that is almost always destined to backfire.

Postnuptial agreements offer protection after the wedding

It is no surprise that prenuptial agreements are becoming increasingly popular in Arkansas and across the country. Whether it is because there are more individuals getting married for a second or third time that want to protect the property they bring into the marriage or provide for children from a previous relationship, more and more couples are using this family law tool to lay out how property is to be divided, what spousal maitenance will look like or how child custody will be determined should a divorce happen. But, what about those people in Arkansas who are already married and never created a prenuptial agreement?

How can Arkansas' same-sex couples divorce?

It is no surprise that same-sex couples in Faulkner County can't get married, at least not in Arkansas. For those couples who refuse to get married outside of Arkansas, that may mean looking for creative family law solutions to protect themselves and their families. For others, however, they would rather leave the state and get married in one of the states or countries in which same-sex marriage is legal. Once they return to Arkansas, some of them will realize they want to divorce, but how can they do that in a state that doesn't recognize same-sex marriage?

For Arkansas veterans, marital problems may take their toll

For many people in Little Rock, the assumption is that once a veteran has returned home after a deployment, that there are very few concerns left. He or she has made it out of danger, so all that a veteran must do is pick up where he or she left off, right? Unfortunately, it is not quite that simple and there are many veterans who are seeing problems at home. Sadly, sometimes the toll of combat ends up causing military divorce.
