Miguel Cabrera sued in child support case

Missouri residents are likely aware of who Miguel Cabrera is for what he does on the baseball field. A woman has filed a lawsuit against him based on something he did in his personal life. According to a lawsuit filed in Orange County Superior Court in Florida, Cabrera reduced child support payments in 2017 for two children he supposedly fathered with her. He allegedly fathered the first child in 2013 and the second in 2015.

Pitfalls for older couples facing divorce

39458626_S.jpgOlder Missouri couples who are facing divorce may be concerned about their retirement savings. The divorce rate for people 50 and older has gone up about twice as much compared to the 1990s, but older people may also be particularly vulnerable financially. They may have fewer employment opportunities and less time to rebuild assets lost during the divorce.

Divorcing: don't forget the tax implications

39056435_S.jpgWith all the changes a divorce brings, Missouri residents who are going through this process might forget that the end of a marriage also results in important new tax implications. Remembering that these changes are imminent is important in planning for the post-divorce future.

Prenuptial agreements can be a good option for career couples

33143949_S.jpgAs Missouri couples approach marriage at a later age and with more developed career paths, prenuptial agreements can be an appealing option to protect both parties' interests. The thought of disentangling personal businesses, investments and retirement funds upon divorce can be particularly troubling for couples consisting of two high-powered career achievers.

Creating consistency for children after divorce

40580363_S.jpgWhen parents get divorced, their children may be faced with the prospect of living in two different households. This may mean that they live under two sets of rules. However, Missouri parents should realize that a child tends to do better when a consistent set of rules is enforced. Regardless of how parents feel about each other, they should overlook their differences and focus on the best interests of the child.

How to divide assets and debt in divorce

64818708_S.jpgIdeally, Missouri residents or others who are going through a divorce will end their marriage in a civil and equitable manner. However, what one person thinks is equitable may not be what the other party to the divorce thinks is equitable. Therefore, it may be a good idea to make a list of all debts that a couple may have and all assets that a couple may have.

Divorce arbitration as an alternative to litigation

54519499_S.jpgWhen many Missouri couples think about divorce, they often think about handling it through litigation. This can be an expensive and difficult way to end a marriage due to the fact that it pits former couples against each other when arguing their views on property division and other divorce legal issues in front of a judge. However, there are alternatives, such as divorce arbitration.

When mediation will not work for a divorcing couple

20501341_S.jpgFor some Missouri couples whose marriages are coming to an end, getting a divorce through mediation instead of battling the case out in court is appealing. For example, mediation is usually more affordable than litigation and it allows the couple to work together to reach an agreement instead of putting the ultimate decision in the hands of the judge. However, mediation is not for everyone, especially if the couple has a violent history.

Health insurance battle leads to delayed divorce plans

54580584_S.jpgMany Missouri residents likely remember what the health care industry was like prior to the introduction of the Affordable Care Act. Those who were not married or otherwise part of an employer plan often faced high premiums and the possibility of being denied coverage for having a pre-existing condition. Republicans in Congress are looking at ways to repeal the ACA and replace it with a new plan.
