What You Need to Know About Arkansas Divorce
The Chancery Court in Arkansas divides the couple's marital estate. The court orders an equitable division of property acquired during the marriage. This does not necessarily mean a 50/50 split. The court examines both spouses' circumstances and contributions to the marriage when deciding how to divide the property. When the court divides the property, the judge does not divide any property acquired before the marriage. Therefore, it is important to document what property each spouse owns and when it was acquired.
