Helping Little Rock Fathers Establish Parental Rights

Arkansas has a unique law impacting fathers' rights to relationships with their children. Under the law, when a child is born to unmarried parents, custody belongs solely to the mother until the paternity of the father is recognized by a court. In order for a father's rights to be recognized, someone must file a complaint with the court to establish paternity. Without recognition from the court, the father has no right to a relationship with his child.

Walking You Through The Arkansas Paternity Process

As experienced family law attorneys at the Law Office Vickie Lynn Cochran, we have a great deal of experience representing fathers in these matters.

By pursuing a paternity action, we can help you take the necessary steps to establish that you are the child's father and obtain full parental rights, including a fair child custody and visitation order. This process also results in the establishment of a child support order if one does not already exist.

I'm a Black Male. Horrible client. Prior criminal history. Bugged Simone to death for updates by email Simone was always nice (and knowledgeable)-- They know Arkansas family law by HEART...

Prior to a full-day trial; spoke to Vickie eh once and did 30 minutes worth of trial prep. No trial prep for my witnesses. Really thought Vickie didn't even know who I was. Boy was I WRONG. On trial day she knew my case better than I did. Remembered things I had forgotten...VC 4 feet of pure pit bull (when needed; she's really a nice lady)....Fierce cross examiner. Despite that, I was still SURE I had lost. WRONG again. Received PRIMARY custody of my DAUGHTER (AND CHILD SUPPORT). Cheap lawyers aint good and good lawyers aint cheap. (They also worked with my financial situation) Filed all motions with lightning speed. I have been wrong a LOT but I wasn't wrong about retaining this firm. I screwed up a lot on the stand but Vickie really saved me. This office is made up of former educators turned lawyers and will fight for whats best for your children (Thats exactly what I paid for). I recommend this office without the slightest reservations!!!!
