Elite & Professional Law Firm
Our attorneys have the resources you need to help you succeed. Our top priority is to get the best resolution in your case.
We have a culture of helping one another. Our team members support one another in making a difference in your life.
Compassionate & Committed
We treat you like family and genuinely care about your well-being. When you choose to work with us, we’re committed to fighting for you until the end.
Divorce and Legal Separation
We know that divorce can be overwhelming, but you don’t have to do it alone. Our attorneys will be with you every step of the way, reducing conflict and making the process as amicable as possible. We promise to listen to your concerns and aggressively advocate for your financial, parental, and personal goals.
Child Custody and Visitation
We know that every family is unique, and every case is different. In any custody battle, we put the needs of the children first and work with our client and their families to find the best solution on their behalf.
We work with our clients to help ensure the noncustodial parent pays the appropriate amount of child support in each case. After child support has been established, the person making payments may lose their job, become disabled, or get a pay increase. Anytime there is a material change in income, either the payor or payee can petition the court to either increase or decrease child support payments.
Our firm can help you form an initial child support agreement and make any necessary adjustments. Call us at (501) 267-9808 to get started.
We believe that all children deserve to grow up in a loving, safe and stable home. We also know, however, that death, mental or physical incapacity, drugs, or other circumstances, can leave parents unable to care for their children.
A guardianship can help protect families in these unfortunate circumstances by allowing another adult to stand in for the parents and to provide the affected children with a loving and safe home. In these situations, the adult seeking to become a guardian must obtain a legal guardianship from a court. This legal document will allow them to make important decisions on behalf of the children, such as those surrounding school and healthcare.
Similarly, sometimes adults need guardians to help manage their affairs. Due to age, mental incompetence, diseases (e.g., Alzheimer’s, dementia, cancer, etc.), or physical inabilities, our elderly or impaired family members may be unable to make important decisions for themselves or protect their assets.
To become a guardian of your minor or dependent loved ones and/or an adult’s estate, consult an experienced family law attorney at our firm.
Contempt and Enforcement of Court Orders
Unfortunately, the relief you feel after obtaining a final divorce decree and custody order can be short-lived when your ex refuses to follow the court orders. If this occurs, you need an aggressive attorney who will help you file a Motion for Contempt. A successful Motion can result in fees and jail time – and your ex may even be responsible for your attorneys’ fees!
Unlike a divorce, an annulment makes your marriage legally void, which means the marriage will cease to exist without the stress of a divorce. In Arkansas, you are entitled to an annulment if you or your partner entered into the marriage without the appropriate consent. For example, you may be able to seek an annulment if your partner lied about their large amounts of debt, coerced you into marriage, or otherwise married you using fraud or force.
To find out if you’re eligible for annulment, contact Taylor & Taylor Law Firm, P.A.
Prenuptial agreements establish how assets will be shared both during the marriage and after (in the event of a divorce). With a prenuptial agreement, you can contractually establish decisions like whether your bank accounts will be joint or separate and which property belongs to the marriage. The clarification that a prenuptial agreement provides can lead to a stronger marriage, especially in the beginning, when sharing assets is often a brand-new concept. By defining expectations early on, couples can avoid uncomfortable discussions in the future.
A prenup may be right for you if you or your partner have children from a previous relationship, own a business, or have outstanding debt.
Adopting a child is an exciting process, but it can be legally complicated. Whether you are a stepparent looking to adopt your stepchild, a couple looking to add to their family, or even a single parent, let us walk you through the steps. Adoptions are one of our favorite legal matters because they bring so much joy to the people we represent.
When a child is born without established paternity, the mother gains sole custody of the child. The father will need to petition the court to establish paternity before he can gain any visitation or custody rights. Likewise, a mother will need to petition the court to establish paternity if she is seeking a child support order.
Family Law Appeals
If you are not satisfied with the court’s decisions in any of the categories on this page, we can help you file a family law appeal. Our attorneys are experienced in appellate court and can review your case and complete legal research to help you make the best possible argument. When the law does not serve you well, we can pinpoint exactly what went wrong and present the error in court. We will make sure you adhere to all required forms and deadlines and fight for your best interests at all times.
