Alimony
Getting divorced is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. Alimony is appropriate in circumstances where there  is an inequity in earning abilities of the parties resulting in a party’s inability to meet their basic needs.  Oftentimes spousal support is necessary to help former spouses meet their basic needs and/or get the skills/education to support themselves. We are here to promote your case for financial help. Read More

Child custody and visitation
For any parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. We will advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home. You will find under “Resources” some local suggested visitation policies for your review.

Child support
Both parents share in the responsibility of raising a child. We do everything possible to help your child receive the financial support needed for a healthy, happy upbringing. You will find under “Resources” the Child Support Guidelines in Arkansas for your review. Read More

Child support modification
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If there is a substantial change in circumstances warranting a modification of child support, we guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify child support payments accordingly.

Divorce
We stand by you throughout your divorce. We obtain the best possible results in court or at the negotiation table and have extensive experience handling issues such as the fair distribution of assets, the division of a marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Mediation 
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and often provides more expedient, predictable results than court trials produce. I can help you obtain a favorable divorce settlement.

Prenuptial agreements
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can lead to divorce. I expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests. Having an agreement in place can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
