Military couples face unique challenges during divorce

33822350_S.jpgNot all couples in Missouri have straightforward family arrangements. In fact, some may only be based in Missouri for a short while. Others spend months at a time apart, with a lingering worry that one of them may not come home. These are only some of the stresses and pressures facing military families. In some cases it can strengthen the bond between a couple. For others the stress creates tension between them, causing a rift. Others still simply grow apart.

What is a legal separation?

20585198_S.jpgThe decision to divorce your partner no matter how long you have been together is a difficult one. If children are involved it can be an even more difficult decision. For some couples a legal separation may be the better option. Where divorce ends a marriage a legal separations does not.

What should I know about Orders of Protection?

17463063_S.jpgThe state of Missouri pulls no punches when it comes to issues of domestic violence, with many laws in place to thoroughly investigate and act against domestic violence allegations. Suffering from domestic abuse can be frightening, and you may feel that you have no way to defend yourself, but remember that the law is on your side. Coming forward with your case and alleging domestic abuse can be the first step on a road that will free you from your abuser forever, starting with an Order of Protection.

Handling property disputes for domestic partnerships

31399339_S.jpgWhile some divorces end with both parties on good terms, many divorces are a messy business with both sides wanting to walk away from the relationship with more than the other. This is one of the reasons that the courts step in, to divide things like assets and child custody in a way that is fair to both parties based on the circumstances. But as messy as divorce can be, unmarried domestic partners who split up have it even worse in many ways.

Things to know about child support in Missouri

12869850_S.jpgChild support is one of the most hotly contested areas of family law. It is a popular stereotype regarding divorced couples in our society: neither party is happy with child support. It seems that in every movie or television show, the divorced husband feels that he is paying too much in child support, or the divorced mother bemoans that her husband's substantial paycheck should allow him to spare a bit more for the sake of the child. Of course these stereotypes exist for a reason, and many divorced couples genuinely feel this way.
