This post is being written to conclude and recap my series on how a parent may possibly gain child custody in the state of Arkansas. I felt it was necessary to write on this topic as, for obvious reasons, many parents do not know how to proceed when they feel they need to gain custody of their son or daughter. The legal system can be daunting. The goal of my last several articles has been to provide information which will better help parents to understand their situation. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a family law attorney. If you or a family member are in need of assistance then contact my office today to speak with a Little Rock lawyer.
I have addressed several topics over my recent articles. The issues which I have analyzed include:
- How Arkansas handles child custody cases
- How Arkansas Judges determine the best interest of a child
- When a Court may grant primary or full custody
- Dealing with emergency child custody cases
- Retaining an attorney for a child custody case
There are multiple reasons why I chose to address these topics. First, having a general understanding of how our state views such matters can help a parent to determine whether or not they have a legitimate case. Second, it is important for parents to understand that a Judge’s sole concern will be for the best interest of the child. It is, therefore, crucial that a parent know how a Court determines what is in a child’s best interest. Third, the Court will begin each case with the presumption that custody should be shared between the parents. There are instances, however, where a Court will grant a parent primary or even full custody. Fourth, if your son or daughter is in imminent danger then it is vital that you take immediate action. Finally, understanding how an attorney can help you can be important when you are selecting counsel.
