Absolute Divorce

When a marriage cannot be saved, the state of Arkansas allows a total dissolution of the marriage.  The spouse seeking to dissolve the marriage must prove certain grounds required by law.  These grounds must be proven with specificity and must be corroborated when the divorce is contested.  Arkansas does not grant "no-fault" divorces, but does allow for parties who have lived separate and apart for more than 18 months to obtain a divorce without the necessity of proving any of the other required grounds.
