Help Guiding You Through Arkansas Law

Arkansas law allows individuals to file for divorce based on grounds of no-fault or fault, as well as being separated from your spouse for a period of at least 18 months. Deciding what grounds to base your divorce on is extremely important, as it can factor into other situations, such as determining child custody, property and assets issues, alimony, and more.

Our state is known as an equitable division state, meaning that each spouse is entitled to the income that they earn during the course of the marriage, as well as property that is solely in their name. Typically, a family law judge will presume that the property and assets are to be divided equally and then hear arguments from both sides if they believe that a different course of action is fairer.
