Divorces come in many different forms; some can be contentious and some can be amicable. Regardless of the type of divorce – if children are involved and no matter how large or small the assets of a marital estate – a divorce can be an emotional and overwhelming time.
The Roberds Law Firm handles divorce cases in and around northwest Arkansas, including Bentonville, Rogers, and Fayetteville. As an experienced divorce attorney, Ben T. Roberds can help you obtain a satisfactory conclusion so you can move on with your life.
Contested divorces are those in which both partners either cannot agree on the divorce or cannot agree on the terms of the divorce. These terms might include the division of assets, allocation of debt, alimony and child support or child custody. In a contested divorce, the issues must be resolved in court. Often, complex issues and finances can make it difficult to agree on the terms of the divorce. In these cases, if unsuccessful with mediation or arbitration, an experienced trial and divorce attorney can help you navigate the legal aspects of your separation and establish the grounds for divorce in Arkansas.
If you are going through a contested divorce or believe you or your spouse may soon file for divorce, consulting with an experienced attorney can help you protect your rights and assets. Additionally, if your spouse has already hired a divorce lawyer, you may wish to seek an attorney.
Uncontested divorces are not uncommon, but, to the untrained eye, the procedures can be fraught with peril. It is a common misconception that an individual can file a divorce for “irreconcilable differences” in the State of Arkansas to obtain a “no fault divorce” or “uncontested divorce.” Many times, a person attempting to obtain a divorce through this manner will have their case dismissed from the Court. Arkansas law states that the person who files the divorce has the burden of proof to demonstrate that they are legally entitled to a divorce, and that means citing the appropriate grounds for a divorce.
Understanding your rights and obligations for a contested or uncontested divorce can be complex. The Roberds Law Firm has experience in simple and amicable divorces as well as divorces fraught with contention.
But, you may still have questions or concerns about divorce laws in Arkansas or how to choose a lawyer…
I’m not sure I want to go through with my divorce. What should I do?
If you have come to the decision that divorce may be your best – or only – option, consulting with a divorce attorney can help you understand how you can proceed. Consulting with or hiring an attorney does not mean you are committed to going through with your divorce, only that you are prepared if you do.
