Child Custody & Child Support

Whether you are going through a divorce or are experiencing the end of your relationship, if you have children, you and your co-parent will need to find agreements concerning child custody and parenting time. These are often some of the most difficult issues for couples to resolve, and you need to understand your rights in these cases.

Arkansas favors joint custody of children, where the children will spend an equal amount of time with each parent. This is a recent change and one that can be difficult to understand. At the Bryce Brewer Law Firm, our attorney, Bryce Brewer, provides representation to individuals dealing with child custody disputes. While the law may favor equal time with both parents, there are still unique issues that each family will need to address as their case moves forward.

Helping You With Your Custody And Support Disputes

Finding an agreement that works for both sides is our goal, because we feel that these arrangements will stand a much better chance of lasting in the future. Courts may not consider your requests and impose an agreement that is not reflective of your wishes. Whether we are mediating or litigating your custody and support cases, we are confident we will provide you with the representation that you require at this time.

We have helped with a number of issues connected to child custody and child support, including:

  • Negotiating a child custody agreement
  • Determining a parenting time/visitation schedule that keeps both parents involved
  • Protecting parental rights in cases where grandparents are trying to obtain custody
  • Establishing or contesting the amount of child support in your case

Under current laws, child support in Arkansas is determined by a specific formula contained in the statutes. Variations from these recommendations are only allowed in limited situations. We work hard to ensure that all income is included when calculating child support in your case.

After the initial custody and support determinations have been resolved, there may be a significant change in your circumstances that requires the order to be revisited. We are able to assist you with any post-decree modifications, including parental relocations.

Helping You Protect What Is Most Important To You

We are committed to helping you keep the time that you are able to spend with your child. To schedule a consultation with our lawyer, please call our North Little Rock office at 501-712-5204 or send us an email.
