Did you know? Your neighbors can sue you for causing a nuisance

We all like to think that we can do as we please with our property so long as we don’t break the law and we do it on our property. There is an element of truth to this, but it is not always the case. Arkansas allows neighbors to sue one another if one’s conduct unreasonably interferes with the use and enjoyment of his neighbor’s land. In other words, if one neighbor’s conduct disturbs the peace, quiet and enjoyment of another person’s nearby property, the offending neighbor can be sued.

There, they can either pay $100.00 or be screened for substance abuse counselors.

November is National Adoption Month

Danny and Dawn Curtis always wanted a large family. They already had two sons when they saw a photo album of Arkansas children in foster care waiting to be adopted. They fell in love with the picture of a young girl and learned that she had three brothers. After much discussion and prayer, they adopted the sibling group and turned their family of four into a family of eight.
