Fathers play an important role in their children's lives

Families in Arkansas today come in all shapes and sizes. A family could consist of one parent, two parents, no kids, or 10 kids. Whatever a family looks like, the most important thing is love. Children, in particular, need to feel that they are in a secure and loving environment in order to thrive. While this is often possible with only one parent, research shows that children benefit from both of their parents' presence.

What is income for child support purposes in Arkansas?

The state of Arkansas has an interest in making sure that children within the state have the financial resources they need. Therefore, when a child's parents are not married, the family law court will generally order child support. Child support is a payment from one parent to the other in support of the child. Generally, the non-custodial parent is responsible for paying child support to the parent with custody over the child.

Alimony and its effect on taxes

When a couple decides to get married, they often intermix their finances, meaning that each person has access to the other's income and resources. However, when people decide to get divorced, this financial support system comes to an end. For an individual with a stable career, this might not be a huge issue. However, if one spouse stayed at home, to take care of children, for example, then the financial loss can be devastating.

How does religion play into child custody?-Part I

America is a democratic country in which with people from all ethnic and religious backgrounds come together and live harmoniously. Because of that, inter-religious marriages are not uncommon. When one of these couples has children and then divorces, religious differences not only become a subject of conflict, but those religious differences may also come up with regards to child custody. If the matter goes before a judge it can become rather controversial because the First Amendment allows every U.S. citizen to practice their own faith and religion.
