Your Favorite Family Law Attorney in Little Rock, Arkansas
Many people have the impression that family law attorneys handle only divorce cases. The truth is that many people need help from a family law attorney for matters other than divorce. At The Madden Law Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas, our family law services run a full range, including prenuptial agreements, stepchild adoptions, support modifications, and name changes. Of course, we also provide professional and knowledgeable representation for people who are filing for divorce and need assistance with property division, child support, and custody, as well as alimony issues.
Free Initial Consultation
Contact our offices to discuss your specific family law or divorce issue. Our lawyers will provide a free consultation to help you determine your best options. In the event your family law matter will involve complex divorce issues, such as marital property valuation, or child custody and visitation disputes in Little Rock, Arkansas, you can be assured that we have the trial experience and skills necessary to help you fight for your rights and protect your interests.
Experienced Attorneys Protecting Your Interests
Your attorney will work directly with you throughout your case. We don't believe in treating you like a file number and passing your case off to an associate or staff person. When you need answers or want to understand something about the process, your lawyer will be there for you. Family law issues can be emotional and stressful. We will lead you through the process in Little Rock, Arkansas, and help you get the type of future you are counting on for you and your family. Our areas of expertise include:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Judgment and support modifications
- Complex property valuation and division
- Guardianship and conservatorship
- Divorce and bankruptcy matters
Although we are experienced trial attorneys, we don't necessarily think that every divorce or child custody case has to end up in front of a judge. By working hard to discover the underlying causes of a marital property argument or custody dispute, we are often able to use mediation, arbitration, or other alternative dispute resolution methods to negotiate a cost-effective settlement that everyone can live with. When a negotiated resolution seems impossible, however, our team of professionals will protect your interests in the courtroom.
Divorce, Child Support, and Custody Modifications
There may come time after a divorce when changes to the divorce decree may be necessary. If your family's needs have changed, the attorneys at The Madden Law Firm will help you in the process of applying for a modification. We represent men and women throughout Arkansas in a wide range of family law matters, including divorce, child custody, child support, and alimony.
If a change in circumstances has occurred, your situation may call for a modification. You need a lawyer's help to make certain that your side of the story is presented appropriately and to increase the likelihood that your request will be granted by the courts. At The Madden Law Firm, our Little Rock, Arkansas, divorce modification attorneys represent clients in situations involving:
Child support modifications: Modifications may be granted if one parent has received a significant increase in pay or a promotion, or they can be made in situations where one parent has had a decrease in hours at work or a demotion.
Custody modifications: As your children get older, custody and visitation arrangements may need to be modified. This may include situations involving parental relocation, changes in your child's school or extracurricular schedule, a job change (or hours change) for one parent and more.
Protecting your family's interests in Little Rock, Arkansas, is of the utmost importance to our attorneys. We believe in treating every client with highly personalized attention and pledge to keep the lines of communication open at all times. We will work toward a goal that you have clearly identified and make certain you are aware of all your legal options.
We Specialize in Paternal Rights
Custody and visitation rights issues can become very heated and stressful. As a parent, you want to make sure that your side is fully represented before the courts. At The Madden Law Firm, we take pride in our ability to aggressively represent fathers in paternity and other family law matters. We will tailor our legal solutions to meet your specific legal needs.
In Arkansas, a father must establish paternity to get visitation rights with his child. Even fathers who are paying child support obligations will need to appear in court in order to get visitation rights to the child. At The Madden Law Firm, we advocate for fathers in matters involving child support, visitation rights, and in pursuing custody. We recognize that fathers' voices are not always heard, and we will make certain that you are aggressively represented in the courtroom.
Our Little Rock paternity lawyers have represented fathers throughout the state of Arkansas, and we receive many of our paternity clients through referrals. We are diligent in our approach to representing our clients and utilize all available resources when handling our cases. You can trust our reputation and proven track record.
