Collaborative divorce a perfect option for some Missouri couples

20560064_s.jpgAs many Missouri couples know, sometimes a marriage does not work out. People grow apart; get sick of the bickering, or for whatever reasons just do not see their spouse as "the one" anymore. In many cases, both people still get along well enough, their marriage is just no longer fulfilling. 

Divorce trends: What was the style of the marriage?

3204131_s.jpgWhen it comes to family law, given the fact that many marriage ideals have greatly changes over the years, this too means the trend among divorce settlements has also greatly changed. Now, many men are the ones being awarded things like child custody, child support and alimony. 

Unmarried parents face unique challenges in Missouri

17592509_S.jpgMarriage is not necessarily for everyone. In fact, there are plenty of couples in Missouri who live together, share living expenses and have children, yet are not legally married. Of course, there is nothing wrong with these arrangements at all. However, when children are involved -- and the parents split up -- it can quickly become complicated.

High-asset divorces can be quite complex

6151990_S.jpgThere are certainly signs of trouble in the divorce process when each side cannot agree on the stipulations of a divorce. For example, if a Missouri father is not willing to only have every other weekend visitation rights or pay out thousands of dollars in alimony, but his soon-to-be ex-wife is insistent on these things, this could be a sign the two will end up having to go to court to reach an agreement.

Are changes necessary to pension payouts in military divorces?

17627924_S.jpgLike is the case with any Missouri divorce, there are two sides to every military divorce. While in some cases couples were married for more than 20 years before getting a divorce, in other cases spouses got married early and divorced early. Considering both of these marital situations are very different, some want to see changes made to the ways in which military pensions are split up among ex-spouses.

New 2013 tax rules may complicate your divorce

8712693_s.jpgIt has been reported for many years that the month of January sees more divorce filings than any other month. Exactly why that is remains a relative mystery however; the fact is that it is also a period when many people begin contemplating their annual tax returns. The timing of a divorce can always affect a person's tax return but with the passage of the federal American Taxpayer Relief Act, things may have just gotten even more complicated for those seeking a high-asset divorce.

Trend: Wives paying maintenance to ex-husbands

10287815_S.jpgIn Missouri, spousal support -- also commonly known as alimony -- is something that can be permanent. What this means is that unless there is a death, remarriage or a substantial change to circumstance, one ex-spouse could find themselves making payments to their ex for years and years.

Fathers can face unique issues in divorce

12940561_S.jpgBack in the 1970s and 1980s, many started to push back against what they considered to be the norm of women being favored by the courts when it came to divorce decisions, like child custody and alimony. At the time many claimed men were routinely being overlooked when it came to family law decisions.
