Paul Petty got a friend of mine full custody, but the mother was proven unfit.
Red Morgan is my attorney and we love him. People mouth off that he's too old or in poor health.
But he knows his business, that's for sure.
My next choice would be Penny Choate.
Most judges prefer joint custody, so it shouldn't be too big of deal. Good luck :)

It depends on why you are wanting joint custody. And it depends on if y'all were married and you have full custody to the mother at the time of divorce.

What if the father ran out on the kids at a very young age and doesn't contact them or care about them nor ask about them?When going to court for custody would he have any rights or would they be terminated. And no we where never married an only together five years.

Well I'm not completely sure about all that stuff you can look it up on the Arkansas website it'll tell you everything you need to know. A very good friend of mine was in a situation that sounds quite simular to yours. She and the father of their two kids were never married, They had the kids very close together he was never a part of those kids life, never even tried until he finally decided to grow up and married a girl that had kids herself, and I assume talked him into trying to see the children he had abandoned years before, of course not the story he told her. His version was he wasn't allowed to see those children, when that was a flat out lie I saw my friend more than a few times try to get him to be involved with those kids and he refused everytime or would just ignore her altogether she finally gave up and two years later after "he'd changed" He decides he wants to be a "daddy" to those babies he didn't want! They'll be going through the court stuff soon but the way I took it is, it's the law in the state of Arkansas if you know the child/children are yours or are thought to be yours and you do not have any contact with them within a year of there life, or after a year from last contact with them it is considered as abandonment, and they have no rights. But like I said I'm not 100% on that but really it should be that way sad how these "men" wanna make all these innocent babies then just have nothing to do with them I guess unless its convient for them. Selfish and disgusting if you ask me.

If you we're never married the woman has custody from the start. You have to prove the mother unfit to get them. As the father and you have to prove that you the father. I am doing that know.
hell yeah
