Q. My ex and I have joint legal custody but our kids want to live with me, they're 11 and 13. Can they choose in AR?
A: The preference of the children could be a factor, but it’s less likely when they’re still so young. Child custody is determined by the best interest of the child and there are a list of factors that judges consider. I recommend consulting an attorney to determine your best strategy for getting the kids back.
Q. Am I entitled to compensation if my husband cheated 7 months after getting married?
A: You’re entitled to your half of the marital property. Even if you’ve only been married a short time, I still suggest seeking an attorney to at least go over your options and protect your interest.
Q. if me and my ex spouse have not went to court to change our divorce papers do we still have to follow by the one we have
A: Yes, but there may be an exception. It depends on what you’re trying to change and your decree.
Q. How do I go about this?
A: I recommend seeking an attorney for a private adoption.
Q. Does a person have to pay taxes on property for 7 years before they can petition the court for a quiet title
A: No, you’re thinking of adverse possession. I suggest consulting an attorney because title issues can be complicated.
Q. When my fiance got a divorce it was granted in the divorce for the house to be sold to pay back taxes
A: I recommend consulting with an attorney. It sounds like you might need to file a Motion for Contempt and also discuss other options. It’s hard to answer without reading the decree.
Q. i am 53 years old disabled and was married 16 months ago, my wife walked on me. she wants to do a pro se divorce.
A: There's no way to answer that without knowing more about your particular financial situation. Typically, you would be entitled to half of the portion of her retirement plan that accrued during the marriage. You would do well to contact an attorney to make sure you're getting everything that you're entitled to.
Q. Can a pardoned felon be a guardian in Arkansas?
A: Theoretically, yes. Arkansas law specifies that “unpardoned” felons cannot be guardians. Ark. Code Ann. § 28-65-203.
Q. If I'm on the birth certificate, as the biological father, can I pick up my child from a grandparents or daycare center?
A: You’ll need to file a petition to establish paternity. A birth certificate alone is not enough. You have no right to the child if you were never married to the child’s mother until you establish paternity. Then you can ask for visitation or custody.
