Understanding these standing orders, their implementation, and your legal obligations can simplify the process of a family lawsuit. A family lawyer can provide you clear instructions on how to pursue your desired outcome within the bounds of those standing orders.

He is always available to discuss legal matters in a secure and confidential environment and is qualified to handle your divorce or family lawsuit at any stage in the proceeding.

Divorce & Family Law Areas of Practice:

In addition to changing your family dynamic, adoption represents a significant and often stressful legal event. You may have questions about adoption eligibility, how long the process will take or what your obligations will be as legal guardian. An adoption attorney can help you understand the legal steps you need to take and ensure you have met the requirements to adopt in Arkansas. If you are considering adoption in Arkansas, or if you have questions about adoption and guardianship, you may wish to consider meeting with an experienced adoption attorney.

You may have questions about child custody and child visitation following a divorce, separation or loss. You may be fighting for custody or seeking a change in the visitation or custody agreement. Perhaps you have questions about how you can protect your custodial or visitation rights. Consulting with an experienced visitation and child custody attorney can help you fulfill court orders and rulings while prioritizing your child’s welfare.

Are you struggling to make child support payments? Is the non-custodial parent failing to pay child support or making late or incomplete payments? Many parents find themselves struggling to pay or collect child support, but it isn’t always clear what legal action you can take to protect your rights and those of your child. You may benefit from the legal services and professional advice of a child support attorney.

Divorce is one of the most stressful experiences an individual can face, but according to many sources, half of all marriages still end in divorce. Divorces can be contentious or amicable, but regardless of the type of divorce, they are often emotional and overwhelming. You and your ex may disagree on a variety of important issues, from child custody and visitation to the separation of your assets and marital estate. If you need support as you navigate the legal, professional and personal challenges of divorce, you may benefit from speaking with a divorce attorney.

Guardianship and paternity suits are often performed in an effort to better support the physical and emotional needs of a minor or child. Paternity suits can be performed to either prove or disprove a child’s biological parents. Unlike paternity, guardianships can be set up for different lengths of time. This allows for a guardian to legally care for and take responsibility of a person and/or estate while the parent(s) are unable or unwilling to do so. Consulting with a family law attorney experienced in matters of guardianship and paternity can help you understand your options and take appropriate legal action.

A prenuptial agreement, or prenup, is a legally binding agreement that can dictate how you and your spouse’s assets are split in the case of a divorce. Often, prenups will only cover the assets of one party. It is important to note that a prenuptial agreement cannot address issues of child support or child custody. A family lawyer can give you and your partner the resources, guidance and legal aid you need to develop a prenuptial agreement for your marriage.

Family lawsuits can involve complex legal proceedings, and it can be difficult understanding court orders and what is expected or required of you. Are you doing what is best for your child? Have you completed and submitted all necessary forms on time? When is child support due? Can you revise court agreements if your situation changes? If you are facing a family lawsuit, such as filing for divorce or fighting for custody, you may feel too overwhelmed to keep up with court obligations. A knowledgeable and experienced family law attorney can help understand your obligations and feel confident that you are doing what is best for yourself and your family.

For many family law matters, meeting with an experienced Arkansas attorney as soon as possible can help you minimize the challenges you will have to face. Family law attorney Ben T. Roberds has experience in a wide variety of family law cases and understands your rights and legal options.
