With regard to division of property, Arkansas is not exactly a community property state—but we function like one. Arkansas statutes say that property is generally to be divided equally unless there is an equitable reason not to divide property evenly. Those last words of the statute have resulted in a lot of uncertainty about what is fair and what is not fair to each party. Our knowledgable divorce attorneys consider the issues and facts in property division to help you split property equitably or sometimes unequally, if such division is warranted by the facts.
