I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

JustAnswer provides general legal information only, and in accordance with site policy, none of the attorneys here are able to retain clients through the site, so neither myself nor any of the attorneys could personally represent you in this matter.

However I can answer any legal questions you might have in regards ***** ***** case and I can let you know how you can in fact get in touch with an attorney to take your case.

With regards ***** ***** attorneys are given wide discretion in setting their fees and how much they can charge.

Family law attorneys generally range anywhere between $100/ hour - $400/ hour.

The more experience an attorney has, the higher the hourly rate for a family lawyer will be.

You can contact the Arkansas State Bar for a referral to a family lawyer in the county where this case will be heard.

The phone number is:

***-***-****

There are sometimes pro bono lawyers available who can take your case for free, so be sure to ask about that possibility as well.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!
