For parents in Arkansas, children are often the most important thing in their lives. Parents go to great lengths to ensure that their children are well taken care of and have everything they need.
However, there are some situations where parents are ill-equipped to provide for their children. In these cases, the children suffer. This might happen with parents who are imprisoned, when they fail to properly care for the child, when drugs or alcohol is involved or when a parent is suffering from a mental or psychological disability.
In these cases, someone else may have to step in to take care of the child. These individuals often do this through a guardian relationship. Guardians can take over the duties that a parent is unable to fulfill. These duties can include making important decisions on behalf of the child or providing the child’s day-to-day care.
While it might be in the child’s best interest for a guardian to step in, it is not always easy for a parent to lose custody in Arkansas. There are specific requirements that must be fulfilled in order for a guardian relationship to be established.
At our law firm, we understand how important a guardian relationship can be to a child. We attempt to help family members, grandparents and other interested parties obtain custody over a child in the appropriate situations. By filing a petition with the family law court, these individuals have the opportunity to help the child.
At our law firm, we understand the evidence required to reach a favorable result. Family law cases are often very emotional. We attempt to help our clients put the emotions aside and focus on the facts in the case. Parents and guardians can then focus on providing a loving home for children, knowing that the legal case is under control.
