Alimony (also called “spousal maintenance” or “spousal support”) is another factor that comes into play when determining how to fairly distribute assets and property. Alimony is typically rewarded when one spouse’s standard of living would drastically worsen without it.
No matter how peaceful or hostile your relationship with your ex may be, our goal is to help you reach a fitting child custody and visitation arrangement. In other words, our priority is helping you establish a plan that puts your child or children’s best interests above all else.
In order to help your child or children maintain a consistent and healthy standard of living, child support may be awarded from one spouse to the other. Child support arrangements vary widely depending on the needs and dynamics from one family to the next.
When two spouses agree on the terms of their divorce, Arkansas calls that divorce "uncontested." If the spouses can’t reach a resolution on their own, the case is "contested." For both kinds of divorce, it’s extremely beneficial to have an experienced lawyer advocating for you.
If two spouses live apart for 18 months or longer, the state of Arkansas will grant them a simple no-fault divorce. Otherwise, one spouse must demonstrate that the other spouse is responsible for the unraveling of the marriage. For instance, adultery, incarceration, and cruelty are all valid claims for legal separation.
Once a divorce has been approved by the state, the next step is to divide up the property and assets that were shared during the marriage. Considerations for this step may include real estate, vehicles, furniture, retirement accounts, business interests, and other assets and property specific to your situation.
Without the right legal team in your corner, divorce and other family law cases can make it feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. We at the Vernetti Law Group sincerely want to alleviate that burden by taking it on as our own. If you need legal guidance or representation for your situation — be it related to divorce, child custody, child support, or a related matter — please don’t hesitate to give us a call. Initial consultations are free of charge.
