Issues related to family are sensitive and emotional. However, because we all have families, we’re likely to face some type of family problem during our lives. You shouldn’t go through this process alone. You need an experienced, dedicated, and compassionate lawyer to fight for your rights whether it’s through a divorce, getting custody of your children or working out a fair visitation schedule that works for you.

There is not a “one size fits all” solution for you, your family or your situation. At the Law Office of Jason M.

When circumstances prevent amicable resolution, we are prepared to zealously represent your in court. We handle a vast array of family-related legal matters from divorce to custody and visitation to advocating for you in Family in Need of Services (FINS) and dependency neglect proceedings with the Department of Human Services (DHS).

  • Divorce

  • Child Support
  • Spousal Support
  • Family in Need of Services (FINS) Proceedings
  • Dependency Neglect Proceedings

Divorce

When you’re considering divorce, you deserve experienced, dedicated, compassionate representation. Tell us your goals, and we will listen to you and devise a plan tailored to your situation. Whether you seek an uncontested divorce or you have tremendous assets to be divided, we can help. Call us today for a consultation, so you can take the first step towards regaining your independence.

Child Custody & Visitation

Custody and visitation agreements can be as unique as you and your family. Oftentimes, a joint custody agreement is preferable so parents can share custody and time with their children. However, what makes sense for custody depends on your family’s unique situation. Certain factors may prevent a joint custody agreement. Sometimes, one parent has primary custody and there is an agreed visitation schedule for the non-custodial parent. No matter what is the optimal arrangement for your family, we listen to you and we advocate for your rights while we consider the best interest of your children.

Child Support

If we represent you in your divorce, child support may be an important part of the equation. However, even if you’re already divorced and a support order is in place, you may experience a change in circumstance such as the loss of a job or a change in pay. If you experience a change that you believe requires modification to an existing child support arrangement, let us help.

Spousal Support

The purpose of spousal support is to balance the income after a divorce. In Arkansas, there are many factors courts consider when determining whether to award spousal support. The most important factors are one spouse’s demonstrated need for support and the other spouse’s ability to pay. You may qualify for either rehabilitative spousal support or permanent spousal support depending on your unique circumstances. Call us today to discuss what’s right for you.

Family In Need of Services (FINS) Proceedings

Contact us if you believe your family would benefit from court intervention regarding a child who is difficult or impossible to control. If your child habitually skips school, is unreasonably or unlawfully disobedient and refuses to listen, runs away from home or needs counseling or other services, call the Law Office of Jason M. Hatfield, P.A. We will listen to you and explore every option available to help your family and your child.

Dependency Neglect Proceedings

If you’re being investigated by the Department of Human Services (DHS) regarding the well being of your children, you need competent, experienced, and compassionate representation. Call us today to discuss your situation and explore options for your family.
