Unmarried couples can divide assets with legal help in Missouri

29564457_S.jpgThere are many couples across the United States who live together, but, for one reason or another, choose not to get married. While a separation is obviously never the desired outcome, not being married can make the process much easier if a breakup should occur. Divorce proceedings may require complex litigation, whereas breaking up can be as easy as walking out the door. However, depending on how long couples lived together, things may not be that simple.

Time spent on social media could indicate divorce

10502330_S(1).jpgFamily law is a multifaceted and important legal practice area that concerns the safety and stability of all members of the family unit, from parent to child to grandparent. Family law covers things like prenuptial agreements and domestic abuse, but one of the most well-known areas of Family law is divorce. From which parent is granted custody of a child, to how much money in assets each party gets, divorce affects all assets of a post-married life.

Serviceman almost loses custody of his child while deployed

2433702_S.jpgThere are many additional factors that make military divorce more complex than civilian divorce, such as the Service Members Civil Relief Act and survivor benefit plans. More than just the extra rules and plans, however, there is the possibility that the military serviceman or servicewoman might be deployed and unable to attend court hearings. This more than anything makes military divorce a special case that must be dealt with by experienced professionals who can work with patience and diligence. The stakes in these cases can be extremely high.

Missouri law cracks down on domestic violence

21924131_S.jpgDomestic abuse is a serious matter that could be affecting someone you know, even if they don't show any signs. Victims of domestic violence are sometimes led to believe that nobody will help them, or they are controlled through fear, believing that even if they inform the authorities, it will just make their abuser even angrier. There have been concerted efforts by Missouri law and law enforcers to curb these instances, but raising awareness about domestic abuse is never a bad thing.

Legal separation is a complex business

12381184_S.jpgThere are many reasons that a marriage may end up not working out, but whatever the reasons, our country currently hosts a very high divorce rate. While it's true that nobody should stay in a marriage that is no longer making them happy, divorce isn't the only option. Couples who feel that their marriage isn't working out can enter into a separation agreement. Legal separation affords couples many of the same options as divorce, including asset division and child custody arrangements.
