There are matters such as military benefits to consider in addition to rules surrounding property division.

Couples in Missouri considering a military divorce have all of these matters to consider.

Don't let a child custody dispute turn into a domestic situation

13148991_s.jpgWhen it comes to child custody matters, tempers can easily flare between parents. In some cases, these tempers can even flare to the point of a domestic situation, which can only further complicate issues regarding child custody and visitation.
