Is There Gender Bias In Custody Hearings?

Adobe Robertson11.jpegDivorcing couples face numerous challenges when ending a marriage in Arkansas. In matters centering on the children, however, fathers have historically been worried about gender bias in the courtroom. Their only interest is getting time with their children, not having to fight a system set up to give the children to one parent regardless of the situation.

What was once unusual custody outcome far less so these days

Sure, there was a time when divorce-linked custody outcomes in Arkansas and across the country had a distinct cookie-cutter look about them. Moms got so-called primary physical custody almost all of the time, with dads popping in at slated intervals -- often every other weekend or so, with a designated week night sandwiched in -- to spend a day or two with the kids.

Celebrity-laden, but instructive: Brangelina case and custody

We make this central point about Arkansas family law courts on a relevant page of our website at the Little Rock law firm of Robertson, Oswalt & Associates, namely, that judges "make child custody decisions based upon the 'best interests of the child.'"

Can I address digital 'stranger danger' in child custody terms?

Some lessons we learn from an early age. Don't cross the street without looking both ways for cars. Avoid hot stoves. Don't talk to strangers. That last one is usually modified somewhat if you happen to be with a parent and they say it's OK.

Who determines 'best interest' of children in custody disputes?

On its face, child custody questions in Arkansas might seem simple to answer. The rule that is supposed to guide all decisions by the courts is what is deemed to be in the best interest of the child. However, what constitutes best interests is subject to interpretation and that can create challenges over child custody for parents who may have competing ideas.
