ARKANSAS ADVOCATES FOR PARENTAL EQUALITY
WHO WE ARE
Arkansas Advocates for Parental Equality is a group of parents who support shared parenting and equal parental rights, regardless of gender or marital status. We recognize that children do best when they have frequent, meaningful time with both parents.
The Arkansas domestic court system is outdated and failing our children. We are working to bring fairness, equality, and evidence-based best practices to family court through legislative change and judicial reform.
A PRESUMPTION OF EQUAL CUSTODY
When a child has 2 fit and willing parents, the only acceptable custody order is equal parenting time.
FAIR TREATMENT OF UNMARRIED FATHERS
Arkansas law unjustly discriminates against unmarried fathers to the detriment of our children.
"Most reforms, most problems are complicated. But to me there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality."
