Helping Arkansas Neighbors with Offices To Serve You In
When family issues arise, so does anxiety.
It can feel like you’re constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop, but only this time, it feels like your life will change forever.
The truth is – whether it’s divorce, adoption, child custody battles, or domestic abuse – family law cases can be intense. They affect every facet of life as you know it, and as a result, they are often emotionally charged.
You might wonder—How do I move forward from here? Can I trust the justice system to work in my favor? Can I trust myself to make the right decisions with my emotions all over the place?
With great change comes great chaos and the thought of uprooting your life is (understandably) nerve-wracking.
So when it comes to making the best decisions for your family, partnering with a Cabot family law attorney at Kevin Lemley Law Partners is the best choice for you and your loved ones.
Let’s cut to the chase. There’s a lot at stake: Your children, home, and way of life.
And when you don’t have proper legal representation, the odds of losing everything becomes more likely. The laws tend to bend in favor of those who know and understand it, those with assertive family law representation.
Hiring a family law attorney gives you the best shot at a successful outcome.
Here are a few ways hiring an attorney benefits you.
With decades of experience in family law, our firm has successfully handled complex cases. Time has taught us that laws can change, but having the right representation on your side can make all the difference.
Family law disputes rarely end quickly. Even uncontested divorces can take months before finalizing. This timeline can be extended when you file missing or inaccurate paperwork or allow your emotions to get the best of you. A family law attorney can save you time by taking over the details of your case, like filing paperwork, setting up mediations, and representing you in all communications.
Family law issues cost. But having no representation at all will cost you more.
Our attorneys can help you protect your family’s financial future by securing your assets and protecting your rights.
Information is key in a family law case. What you don’t know can ultimately be the undoing of your case.
Here are a few legal resources you should know about:
Family law issues are emotionally-taxing. So, you’d want to talk to someone who knows and understands what you’re going through. Our team at Kevin Lemley Law Partners has represented families for over 20 years, providing solutions to even the most complex situations. We are family law lawyers who care and want to help you through this difficult time. We handle the following types of family law cases in Arkansas.
Choosing to end an unhappy marriage can birth new problems you weren’t ready for. You’ll have to determine how to distribute assets, who will get the kids fairly and how often, who stays in the family home, and whether or not you pay spousal support. These questions need answers, but in the middle of a separation, you may find that you don’t agree on any of them. Our attorneys handle contested and uncontested divorces, and we can help you map a solution that works for everyone.
As a parent, you must make the best decisions for your child, no matter how difficult. Child custody, visitation, and support are among the toughest decisions you’ll make on their behalf. But they are also the most important for your child’s well-being. Arkansas child support guidelines have recently changed. Our attorneys can keep you updated on how state laws impact your case and can fight to uphold your parental rights.
Adopting is an exciting experience. But it can be made stressful by the constant hoops the legal system requires you to jump through. Our attorneys can help you navigate both inter-family and intra-family adoptions.
How do Arkansas courts resolve family law disputes?
Family law disputes may be resolved through mediation and negotiation under Collaborative Law, a dispute resolution process facilitated by trained attorneys through the family courts. An AR family law attorney at Kevin Lemley Law Partners can help you with your case.
How are assets divided in a divorce in Arkansas?
Arkansas is an equitable distribution state. Meaning assets must be divided fairly among spouses. Fairly does not always mean equally in this case, and a judge can allocate proportions based on the length of the marriage, employability, health status, occupation, and other factors.
How is child support granted in Arkansas?
Arkansas grants child support based on the supporting parent’s income and how many children need to be supported in the legal custody agreement. If you have a joint custody agreement (when children stay with each parent at least 40% of the time), the parent who makes the most money is usually the paying parent. Or it may be considered “equitable time,” and neither parent is ordered to pay child support.
