Accomplished Russellville Divorce Lawyers Deliver Complete Support

Arkansas advocates find solutions that meet clients’ specific needs

Going through a divorce can be a traumatic experience even if you and your spouse agree on many issues. At the Sanford Law Firm in Russellville, we can’t make the marriage dissolution process perfect, but we can ensure that you have someone in your corner providing knowledgeable advice and advocacy. When disputes arise over matters such as property division and child custody, our experienced attorneys will give you the comprehensive support you need to assert your rights. From our main office and our Little Rock location, we help clients resolve divorces in a manner that allows them to look ahead and move on with confidence.

Experienced firm offers knowledgeable advice on marriage dissolution

Each divorce is different, so our seasoned attorneys guide you based on your individual circumstances and needs. From our first meeting, we discuss key issues such as:

  • Filing and grounds — Most Arkansas marriages can be dissolved without any finding of fault after the spouses have lived apart for at least 18 months. However, special requirements exist for a covenant marriage and for emergency issues. To file a divorce petition, one party must have lived in the state for at least 60 days.
  • Asset Distribution
  • Military divorce — Men and women who served in the armed forces often face complications relating to issues such as jurisdiction and benefits when their marriage ends. Our firm advises service members and their spouses at every stage of their divorce.

We understand that divorce is a difficult process, which is why our family law attorneys are always available to assert your rights and answer your questions.

Skillful attorneys work to secure favorable property distribution terms

Determining how a couple’s assets and debts should be allocated can be a time-consuming and emotionally draining part of divorce. Our lawyers negotiate marital settlement agreements that enable clients to start the next part of their lives on a strong financial foundation. When spouses cannot agree on terms, we are strong advocates in Circuit Court for a resolution that meets the fairness standard set by Arkansas law.

Knowledgeable advisers assist with alimony and other disputed issues

Whether your divorce is amicable or bitter, we offer representation that suits your needs and values. This includes advocating for clients in alimony proceedings and disputes over child custody and support. Our firm works hard on behalf of fathers whose rights have traditionally been overlooked in parenting matters as well as mothers who no longer benefit from a presumption in their favor. If spousal support is an issue, we ensure the court has accurate information on the factors used to decide support, such as the duration of the marriage, the couple’s standard of living and each party’s earning ability.
