Concerning division of property, Arkansas is not exactly a community property state—but we function like one. Arkansas statutes say that the property is generally to be divided equally in divorce cases unless there is a compelling reason to do otherwise. Those last words of the statute have resulted in uncertainty about what is fair and unacceptable to each party.
Our knowledgeable divorce attorneys consider the issues and facts in property division to help you split property equitably or sometimes unequally if the facts warrant such division.
While divorce is a typical course of action for marriages that have ended, an alternative legal pathway some individuals might consider is a marriage annulment. Unlike a divorce, an annulment doesn’t just end a marriage; it legally invalidates it, effectively erasing its existence. This distinctive legal process requires a nuanced understanding of Arkansas state law, and it isn’t an option suitable for all circumstances.

Our Little Rock divorce attorneys will guide you through the annulment process, ensuring you thoroughly understand the specific prerequisites and grounds required to qualify for an annulment in our state.
