Description: Hot Springs, Arkansas family law divorce lawyers represented the parties in a dissolution action.

Delores and Jesse Rawls, age 78 and 84 at the final hearing, married in February 1993. They had lived mostly apart since November 2009- Jesse, on a forty-three-acre property in Pine Bluff he had inherited from his parents but renovated during the marriage and deeded to them both; Delores, at a home in Hot Springs they had bought during the marriage. The pair shuttled back and forth for visits. We don't know why they decided to stop. Delores pleaded eighteen months' separation as grounds for divorce. Jesse countersued for a divorce based on general indignities, but only Delores provided corroborating proof. Ark. Code Ann. § 9-12-306(c)(1) (Repl. 2020); see Olson v. Olson, 2014 Ark. 537, at 10, 453 S.W.3d 128, 134. Property division and support were the disputed issues.
