Explaining asset division for unmarried couples

19926312_S.jpgIt is one of the most dreadful things about any kind of separation in which couples lived together, whether the separation is divorce or simply breaking up: asset division. There are some couples who attempt to resolve their disputes and stay in a relationship simply because they do not want to have to deal with the hassles of splitting and potentially losing some of their assets. This is inadvisable, because an unhealthy relationship benefits nobody, and assets can be handled legally.

Nearly half of domestic violence cases are unassisted

31829326_S.jpgWe often talk about how serious Missouri treats domestic violence, and we recently reported on a state congressman who is taking steps to increase resources devoted to reducing domestic violence and assisting victims. New statistics indicate that this help cannot come quickly enough, as many shelters are struggling to provide the necessary assistance for domestic violence victims. Whether it is employees being released or lack of funding, the fact is that many individuals are unable to receive the help they need.

Understanding legal separation

32623841_S.jpgThe primary difference between legal separation and divorce is that a couple is still technically married, even if they are legally separated, whereas in a divorce, the marriage is ended. This is a particularly crucial distinction to make if a couple is unsure that they truly want their marriage to be ended, but they still wish to have many issue commonly covered by divorce to be mandated by the courts.

Don't let complexities keep you from a necessary divorce

8534233_S.jpgDivorce is never a situation that should be taken lightly, but at the same time it is not a situation that should be automatically avoided either. There is often a social stigma about divorce where people feel that a divorced couple should never have been married in the first place or should have worked harder to keep their marriage together, but those who have been divorced know that this is far from the truth.
