Divorce -- A divorce can be the most difficult process a person goes through in his or her lifetime. It is stressful time that is made worse by the fear of the unknown. While LDHR does not have a crystal ball, we can help you navigate the process, explain your options, and provide you the information you need to make the decisions affecting your life.
Custody -- In 2013, the Arkansas legislature amended Arkansas Law to provide that "joint custody" is favored under the law. This term is defined in terms of division of time. Depending on where your case is located, a "joint custody" award may affect final decision-making between parents, child support, and how a subsequent relocation is treated. Each case is different and this is why you need our experienced litigators to prepare your case for its specific facts.
Child Support -- Arkansas has one of the broadest definitions of "income" for purposes of child support in the United States. Currently, Arkansas considers the income of the obligor parent only and a percentage of net income is applied to determine what amount of child support should be paid. With the changes in the law regarding "joint custody", child support is within the discretion of the trial court when determining whether to award child support in equal time sharing cases. Further, the chart amount is a presumption that may be rebutted and deviating upward or downward is possible depending on factors set out by the Arkansas Supreme Court.
