Proven Arkansas Family Law Attorneys Pursue Favorable Results

Dedicated advocates with offices in Russellville and Little Rock

Troubles within a family can be overwhelming for everyone involved. Fortunately, an experienced family law attorney can help by outlining your rights and options in a clear, professional manner. At the Sanford Law Firm in Russellville, our team provides knowledgeable counsel in a full range of domestic matters, such as divorces and child support disputes. Our firm represents clients throughout Pope County and the surrounding areas and has an office in Little Rock to meet all of your needs in cases involving matrimonial or parenting issues.

Skillful lawyers guide clients through the divorce process

If your marriage is ending, our firm helps you create a complete plan for protecting your rights during and after the divorce. With 60 years of combined experience, our attorneys ensure you understand the important aspects of Arkansas matrimonial law, including:

  • Grounds — A separate dissolution process exists for couples who have a covenant marriage. Whether you have this type of union or a standard marriage, our firm can guide you through each step.
  • Child custody — Whenever possible, we work to create child custody terms that foster a productive relationship between divorced parents and their kids. When that is not possible, our lawyers serve as effective advocates in court.
  • Property division — Arkansas divorce law is based on the principle of equitable distribution, meaning that a judge decides how property should be divided when a marriage ends. An even split is not required, so it is essential to find an attorney who can make the strongest possible case for a fair outcome.

How you handle your divorce can affect the lives of you and your children for many years to come, so our firm concentrates on achieving results that serve you well in the long term.

Effective firm seeks fairness in child support determinations

In most cases, Arkansas child support rates are based on a formula that uses the income of the noncustodial parent and the number of children involved. Though this might seem simple, courts can order a different amount if the circumstances warrant it. Our firm presents the necessary information to the judge and can identify instances where a paying parent is hiding or suppressing their income. We also represent parents in child support enforcement actions and modification petitions.

Established legal counselors assist parents who seek to adopt

Families who wish to start the adoption process face many options. We explain the procedures associated with domestic and international adoptions and help prepare the necessary documentation once you have made your choice. If an agency is involved, we can work with them while helping you get ready for the home study and other important parts of the process.

Attorneys create guardianships to protect children and disabled adults

Establishing a legal guardianship can make a huge difference for a child or disabled adult who needs assistance with important tasks. Our firm works with clients to create instruments that allow them to handle legal, property and medical matters. In these cases, we gather all of the relevant information to make a compelling case to the court regarding the necessity for the guardianship.
