Arkansas is Not a No-Fault State
In the state of Arkansas, a divorce cannot be finalized until one side or both have demonstrated that there is a justifiable reason or “fault” for terminating a divorce. As you can imagine, this further complicates the divorce process as neither party would want to be the reason for the marital dissolution. This is especially true when the two spouses who are seeking a dissolution of marriage have children. As your legal representative, we will ensure that your voice is heard and that your side of the story is presented to the court in the most compelling and favorable light. Our attorneys will be sensitive to your needs and desires particularly if you have children.
What are the “Grounds for Divorce” in the State of Arkansas?
Arkansas Divorce Law states that an individual who wishes to dissolve a covenant of marriage must prove one or more of the following “grounds for divorce” in a divorce proceeding:
- A spouse was impotent at the time of marriage and continues to be impotent.
- A spouse has been convicted of a felony or “infamous crime.”
- Alcohol addiction or habitual drunkenness for one year or longer.
- A spouse is guilty of life threatening cruelty or “barbarous treatment.”
- A spouse has committed adultery during the marriage.
- A spouse “offers such indignities” to the other spouse that he or she can no long tolerate the situation.
