Voluntarily living separately without cohabitation for 18 months. [Arkansas Code of 1987 Annotated; Title 9, Chapter 12-301].
General reasons for divorce in Arkansas are valid under the following reasons:
Legal separation in Arkansas can be granted based upon the above listed reasons for fault divorce, and also includes:
The circumstances of the parents and child;
The nature of the case;
Which parent is most likely to allow frequent and continuing contact with the other parent; and
Any acts of domestic violence.
Joint or shared custody may been awarded if it is found to be in the best interests of the child. The sex of the parent is not a factor for decisions relating to child custody. A grandparent of a child may petition the court to request continuing contact with the child. [Arkansas Code of 1987 Annotated; Title 9, Chapter 13-101 and Arkansas Case Law].
In awarding a reasonable amount of child support, the court is to consider the following factors:
Child support payments may be ordered to be paid through the registry of the court and the court may require that a bond securing payment be required. There is an official Arkansas Family Support guidelines chart which is presumed to be correct, unless the court finds that the amount would be inappropriate or unjust, considering the following factors:
This chart should be available from the Clerk of any Chancery Court. In addition, an official Affidavit of Financial Means must be filed with divorce cases which involve issues relating to child support. [Arkansas Code of 1987 Annotated; Title 9, Chapters 12-312 and 14-105 and Addendum to 1997 Arkansas Code Supplement].
Arkansas is an “equitable distribution” state. All of the marital property acquired during the marriage is divided equally between the spouses. However, if the court finds the division to be unfair, it may redistribute the property, after consideration of the following factors:
Alimony may be granted to either spouse in fixed installments for a specific period of time and subject to automatic termination upon the death of either spouse, remarriage of the receiving spouse, or the establishment by the receiving spouse of a relationship that produces a child or children. Where the grounds for divorce are voluntary separation for three years, fault may be considered in dividing the property. The factors for consideration specified in the statute are that the amount be reasonable based on the circumstances of the parties and the nature of the case. Alimony payments may be ordered to be paid through the registry of the court. [Arkansas Code of 1987 Annotated; Title 9, Chapter 12-312].
