Helping Unmarried Parents In Little Rock And Surrounding Communities Resolve Child Custody Disputes

Arkansas courts believe that the best interests of children are served when they have frequent and continuous contact with both parents. In fact, Arkansas law specifically favors joint custody.

However, the law states that legal custody of a child born to an unmarried woman belongs to the mother. The biological father can be granted custody or visitation if he is an appropriate and fit parent, and takes responsibility in providing care and financial support.

While additional factors help to determine custody, the best interests of the child come first. Parents encouraging a relationship with the noncustodial parent are clearly putting their needs second to those of their children.
