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.
