Legal information is not legal advice. I am not a lawyer. I am still in the early stages of navigating the obstacles facing Arkansas families wishing to care for their own dead. I have done my best to provide the most accurate answers to the most common questions. As I begin work with Arkansas families and encounter new situations, I will update /modify answers as needed. If you encounter information that you believe to be incorrect, please notify me so I may research the issue. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
