Helping unmarried couples understand their rights

22114547_S.jpgThere are many aspects of the law that can be extremely confusing for married couples and families in the event of a divorce, such as child custody and property division. However, as difficult as these issues can be for divorcing couples, they are often more complex for unmarried couples, who still must answer these questions if they break up or separate. Unlike divorces, where the law is often quite clear, disputes between unmarried couples can be extremely difficult to understand.

How do courts treat child support for military divorce?

33822199_S.jpgThe amount of special rules or provisions that exist for military divorce are incredibly innumerable, and this is why it is highly recommended that individuals going through a military divorce consult with an attorney. Legal assistance can help you understand the multifaceted issues at play in a military divorce, which can be crucial to receiving a divorce agreement that is fair to you and your circumstances as a military service member.

What are Missouri's adoption laws?

16972215_S.jpgThere are many reasons that an individual or a couple may wish to adopt a child: some same-sex couples who cannot conceive together choose to adopt in order to expand their families and some people simply want to provide a better life for children who have no caregiving relationships with their parents. Regardless of the reasons, those who wish to adopt are encouraged to do so, but armed with the necessary knowledge.

Unwed couples should get legal assistance when dividing property

Thumbnail image for 21144197_S.jpgDisputes over property are not only experienced by married couples. There are many people who have found themselves in a domestic relationship where both parties have shared property with one another, but come time for separation, they cannot agree on who gets what. In some cases, this can be easily resolved, but in others, this dispute may result in couples going to court and letting a judge decide what each person will walk away with.

The benefits of a legal separation

12621752_S.jpgIn some states, couples are required to be legally separated for an allotted time period before they can file for divorce. This is not the case in Missouri, however, couples do face a separation requirement after they actually file for divorce; this requirement is a 30-day period in which couples must live apart before divorce proceedings get underway. It is worth noting that just because couples are not required to legally separate before filing for divorce, they may wish to enter into legal separation for other reasons.
