Who gets what: Asset division in Arkansas divorces

Asset division is often one of the most hotly contested aspects of a divorce agreement. Each spouse may feel like he or she deserves a specific asset, such as the marital home. Even if both parties are trying to work together, small disagreements can quickly cause problems when deciding on how to divide the marital assets.

Should you try to keep emotions out of a divorce?

If you're going through divorce, you know how hard it can be to keep from feeling emotional. This is true in almost all divorces—whether you asked for the split, your spouse did, or you both agree it's for the best. It's still a huge change and you could feel a wide range of emotions as things play out.

4 huge divorce questions

The most common question people ask about divorce is what the cost is going to be. While this is a logical question, every case is different, so there's no standard answer. Below are four other common questions that are a bit easier to answer outright—though there are still differences from case to case.

Some experts suggest starting new traditions to help you during this time.

Many people in Arkansas make the mistake of thinking that a divorce is the worst possible thing that can happen -- that it is the end of the world. One writer, though, shows how you really can move on and even feel good when the dust settles.

Divorce selfie photos gaining popularity
