Family Law Overview

Family Law in Arkansas

Family law encompasses multiple legal issues, including:

  • Divorce
  • Alimony
  • Property division
  • Child custody
  • Child visitation
  • Child support

Our team of trusted legal professionals is able to effectively represent our clients in these different areas of family law. At the Law Firm of Thomas Buchanan we are passionate about what we do and work aggressively so that our clients’ financial and parental rights are protected. We treat all of our clients with compassion and respect; we are committed to achieving solutions that meet their unique needs.

Divorce Proceedings in Arkansas

Filing for divorce is necessary in order to end your marriage. It is important to understand your rights and the legal process involved. We make sure all of our clients’ questions and concerns are addressed. We also keep our clients well-informed throughout the court proceedings and work hard to protect their rights.

Property Division during Divorce

Any assets and debts acquired during the marriage must be divided equitably. Hiring skilled and knowledgeable attorneys is crucial when dealing with the property division aspects of any divorce case. We remain apprised of the most recent law changes and pertinent court decisions so that we can use that information in a manner that will protect our clients’ financial interests. We make sure our clients receive a property division settlement they are entitled to under Arkansas laws.


Alimony is the financial support one spouse gives to the other spouse. When our clients need help maintaining the standard of living that existed during the marriage, we aggressively fight for their right to receive the appropriate financial arrangement. When we represent clients who are in a position to pay alimony, we aggressively fight to make sure any payment arrangements are equitable and not detrimental to the clients’ financial welfare.

Child Custody and Child Visitation Rights

Child custody and visitation rights tend to be very contentious issues with parents. We use our exceptional negotiation skills to create child custody arrangements that will satisfy our clients and meet the needs of the family. In instances when an agreement cannot be amicably reached, we use our years of litigation experience to convince the court to establish a custody arrangement that supports the best interests of the family.

Child Support

Child support is the money a parent pays to cover the expenses associated with taking care of a child. The courts use set guidelines established under Arkansas laws to create child support payment arrangements. Since the particular circumstances within each family are different, the attorneys at the Law Firm of Thomas Buchanan carefully analyze each client’s financial situation. Then we pursue the necessary legal actions to ensure the financial needs of our clients’ children are met.
