What you need to know
Even though the relationship between you and your spouse has changed and you may no longer be living together, until you are legally divorced, you are still married. The legal ramifications of being married vary from state to state, but generally speaking, until you are divorced you and your spouse have certain rights and obligations to one another. In general, until you are divorced not only can you not remarry but also anything you obtain may be subject to a claim of ownership, in whole or in part, by your spouse, and the future ownership of assets and property already obtained may be unclear.

Parents have an obligation to provide financial support for all minor children. The court enforces the child support obligation regardless of the gender of the parent. For instance, the court does not automatically assume that the father must pay child support to the mother. If it is in the best interests of the children, the court orders a mother to pay child support to the father. In circumstances where the child lives with neither parent, the court will order both parents to pay child support to whomever the child lives with. The court relies upon the Arkansas Child Support Worksheet to determine how much a parent must pay to support their children.
