Many times, the heartache of divorce can be complicated with legal issues. If your only option is divorce, we are here to help you. Whether you want help with an uncontested divorce, where you and your spouse agree on everything, or a complex custody and divorce case involving many states and problems with property and jurisdiction, we have the experience to work with you and your children to help you through this difficult time.
When your family is in crisis, you need someone to turn to whom you can trust. More than 4,700 families have turned to us for help in their time of need. We are a Christian-based law firm that provides skilled legal representation in all issues related to divorce, custody and family law, including:
If you and your spouse agree on all matters about your divorce, it is uncontested. An uncontested divorce can be surprisingly affordable. The attorney fee for an uncontested divorce starts at $395 for a basic case, plus the Court filing fee, and there are additions for additional complexity.
Be sure you have talked to your spouse and you agree on all matters. Some, but certainly not all, of the things important to discuss are: Who will have custody of the children? Is normal visitation and normal child support OK? What will you do with your marital home or your retirement accounts? If you are in agreement on every point, we urge you to come talk to us right away so we can draw up your divorce papers and you can get your spouse’s signature while you are both still in agreement.
It is much more common that the stress of divorce results in the inability to talk to your spouse and work out an agreement. That means that your divorce is contested. We will draft the initial papers to file in the Court to begin your divorce and then we will have those papers served on your spouse, usually by a process server.
Your attorney will work to protect your interests in all family and financial matters throughout the legal process. We will negotiate with the other party to try to settle your case in a manner that you feel is fair, so you do not have to go through the anguish and expense of a trial. But if your spouse is not reasonable and a trial becomes necessary, we are experienced with trials and have an excellent relationship with all of the Judges in Northwest Arkansas. You can rely on us to aggressively represent your interests in Court.
We believe that in every family law case, the well-being of your children is the most important issue. You might want help establishing joint legal custody, supervised visitation, or proving paternity. In cases of child abuse and neglect, we have worked with Arkansas DHS (Department of Human Services) to terminate parental rights and facilitate family adoption by grandparents and other caring family members. We also help birthmothers who want to place their babies for adoption in caring, Christian homes.
