The Choices That Are Part of Divorce
Divorce involves both parties making decisions on weighty issues, such as:
- Child custody and visitation — Given how important it is for people to be with their children, this issue often requires mediation. We have experience in dealing with the local pool of mediators.
- Child support — Child support is established according to state guidelines, which use a formula. Deviations from that formula are allowed in certain circumstances. If your situation falls into one of those circumstances, we will make the case for a deviation.
- Spousal support — Spousal support is not automatic in Arkansas. It and alimony are based on need, ability to pay and the length of the marriage.
Division of Property
The division of property can be very complicated. All assets and debts need to be divided between the parties. Further, there must be a determination if either party is the sole owner of an asset or if it is marital property. Apart from personal property, items such as the following must be considered:
- Retirement accounts
