Divorce is necessary when spouses decide they want to terminate their marriage contract. From a legal standpoint, divorce gives each spouse the right to marry someone else. A divorce also requires spouses to divide their assets and debts and determine custody of their children. If you and your spouse agree on everything regarding your divorce agreement, then you can file for an uncontested divorce.
Spouses in Arkansas have to prove fault if they want to divorce. The only form of “no-fault” divorce, is if the spouses have lived separate and apart for 18 months. When that occurs, either party may obtain a divorce, even if the other party does not consent to the divorce. The other common grounds for divorce in Arkansas are “general indignities.” This means that the at-fault party has made the other party’s life intolerable.
Arkansas is a community property state, which means your marital assets are split equally. If an agreement is not reached regarding the division of property, then a trial will be held and the Judge will divide your property evenly between you and your ex.
