A: Arkansas allows for limited-scope representation.

It may be possible to have an attorney draft the necessary documents on your budget, especially if you arrange for this to be paid and produced over a period of time (pay for drafting the complaint, file when you can afford the filing fee, pay for a final decree when you can afford that, etc).

If your spouse is not contesting the divorce, he/she can save you at least $50 by signing a waiver of service.

Price could vary significantly if children are involved. Working out custody-visitation details together, as soon as possible, will also save time and money.
