What is the UCCJEA and how does it affect child custody?

Arkansas residents are more mobile than ever before. With the invention of the Internet the world has gotten a little smaller. People can access information from all over the world and, therefore, work from all over the world. This gives individuals more flexibility when it comes to where they choose to live. While this can be a good thing, it can also complicate child custody matters -- especially when parents live in two different states.

The difference between physical and legal child custody

When a couple has a child together, they often split duties when it comes to raising that child. However, when couples break up it's not always as easy to determine who will take care of the childrearing responsibilities. In many cases, each parent will want significant time with the child. When this happens, a child custody dispute is likely. In a child custody dispute, the courts will be tasked with determining which parent will receive physical custody and which parent should receive legal custody.

Dealing with post-divorce issues

Going through the divorce process can be emotional and complex. Even when divorcing couples in Arkansas believe that they have reached a workable and fair divorce settlement, this does not always mean that they are done dealing with divorce issues or that the decision-making process has ended. And, while the post-divorce life can be a huge adjustment for some newly divorced individuals, it could also be a time when legal divorce issues need to be revisited.
