Should I get a prenuptial agreement?

32565788_S.jpgPrenuptial agreements have long been a source of contention when it comes to marriage. There really is no getting around the fact that you are essentially putting a contingency plan in place for divorce, and the possibility of divorce is the last thing you are likely considering when getting married. Some parties instantly become suspicious if their fiancée requests a prenuptial agreement, but the truth is that prenuptial agreements offer many benefits. It is up to couples to determine if they should get a prenuptial agreement.

How does the law treat unmarried couples?

25006503_S.jpgFor one reason or another, you and your significant other may decide that marriage is not right for you. This is a fairly common occurrence, wherein couples live together but don't officially marry. Of course, if unmarried couples split up, they cannot divorce.

Missouri shows little gender bias in family law matters

25027315_S.jpgFamily law is a multifaceted legal area that covers topics ranging from marriage and divorce to domestic abuse and property disputes.

Hand surgeon with national chain jailed for unpaid child support

8943603_S.jpgPaying child support in Missouri is not an option. Rather, it is a payment that typically the noncustodial parent has to pay -- by law. In cases where payments are not made, the parent who owes can be expected to be contacted by the Missouri Division of Child Support Enforcement. This division specifically works with custodial parents to help locate a noncustodial parent who is behind on child support payments.

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.
