Uncontested divorce in Arkansas

Deciding to split up legally, Arkansas couples have two options:

  • Initiate a contested divorce. This type of legal breakup presupposes spouses being in a disagreement concerning child-related aspects, alimony, or property division. In order to finalize their dissolution, the couple has to hire lawyers who would help them reach consensus and/or represent them during the court hearings. Coming to an agreement is a tough and long process, which takes plenty of time. Apart from that, contested dissolution is extremely expensive.
  • File for an uncontested dissolution. Unlike in a contested case, filing for an uncontested divorce, couples agree on all the matters and may not even need legal help. Consequently, such a dissolution requires fewer expenses and takes far less time to be finalized.

However, any type of divorce presupposes dealing with a great amount of paperwork. If you start looking for the divorce forms required for your case on your own, you may end up downloading incorrect or outdated ones. Such a situation will inevitably lead to court rejection. If you want to avoid it, we recommend using OnlineDivorcer.

Thousands of couples get their marriage dissolutions finalized each year by ordering their forms with us.

  • Check whether you meet the residency requirements. In Arkansas, at least one of the spouses must have lived in the state for 60 days in order to file there.
  • Fill out the forms for your marriage dissolution.
  • File the documents with the County Circuit Clerk and pay the filing fees.
  • Serve the documents to your spouse. Ask any person over 18 who isn’t involved in your divorce case to do it.
  • Contact the clerk to find out about the way to schedule the hearing.
  • In Arkansas, you have to attend a court hearing. You also need to come with the person who can testify that you or your spouse live in the state and that you no longer live together.
  • Wait until the judge reviews the paperwork and signs a divorce decree.

How to complete a do it yourself divorce in Arkansas?

It’s not a secret that many people cannot afford to hire a lawyer nowadays. They try to look for alternative options, and DIY divorce seems like the best one. However, is it worth the trouble? Let’s review the basics of DIY divorce in Arkansas to find it out:

  • The first thing you need to do is to check the following aspects: 1) whether you meet the residence requirements of the state of Arkansas; 2) if you and your spouse are in a full agreement to qualify for an uncontested dissolution.
  • The next step is searching for information. You have to visit the official state website where you need to find all the dissolution-related information. Apart from that, you have to search for all the forms required for your case. If you have no idea what documents you need, you have to do some digging on the Web or get an advice from an expert in the sphere.
  • If you have children, find state custody and support guidelines as well as the child-related forms. Do not forget to check whether you need to take up classes for divorcing parents.
  • Now you can finally fill out all the collected divorce forms. However, be very careful with this step. It is best to research each unknown term not to make any mistakes in the documents. Also, mind that some fields need to remain blank for other people, a clerk for example, to fill them out later.
  • One of the final steps is checking whether there are mandatory classes you need to take to later represent yourself in court.
  • Now you can print the documents and start the signing process. Please note that some documents can only be signed in front of the notary.

Getting a divorce in Arkansas with a child

Being a divorcing parent, you need to consider the following:

  • Most courts in the state prefer encouraging the parents to cooperate to grant them joint custody.
  • If parents came to an agreement concerning custody, they have to develop the parenting plan and present it with the court.
  • There are two types of custody in Arkansas: sole and joint, which can also be legal and physical. Sole physical custody presupposes a child living with one parent while the other parent is granted visitation rights. Joint physical custody in the state does not necessarily mean that parents will spend an equal amount of time with the child.
  • Arkansas courts used to stick to the rule of ‘Tender years,’ which states that the best interest of the child would be to remain with the mother until they reach a certain age. However, now, they provide equal opportunities for both parents.
