Divorce & Custody
Arkansas Divorce and Custody Attorneys
When people get married, they pledge to be together “until death.” A divorce happens when the marriage ends before death. As a marriage legally binds two people together, a divorce legally ends that relationship.
Know the facts
Residency: At least one party must live in Arkansas for at least 60 days before filing for a divorce and for 3 months before a divorce may be granted.

- Eighteen continuous months of separation
- General and personal indignities
- Conviction of a felony

Property distribution: Property acquired during a marriage is distributed equally between parties considering factors such as length of the marriage, age, employability and other factors. Alimony may be awarded to either party.
