The Best Arkansas Divorce Attorney
Contested divorce in Arkansas is when the parties involved can’t agree on things like child custody, child support, alimony, property distribution, financial distribution, etc. Arkansas has standards for most issues in a divorce case:
Custody: Arkansas’ preference is joint physical custody, or for the child to spend about 50% of their time with each parent.
Child Support: Arkansas sets child support amounts through Arkansas Administrative Order #10. It sets the amount of support per child based on income and pay frequency. Even in joint custody situations, there is still a child support obligation.
Property/Financial Distribution: Arkansas begins by giving 50% of all marital property and debt to each party.
