Think ahead when creating a prenuptial agreement

16575821_s.jpgA good prenuptial agreement contains detailed information pertaining to significant assets and debts. The best agreements are also those that cover all types of possible situations, from spouses becoming involved in each other's businesses to one spouse staying home to take care of children. 

Missouri legislation concerning foster children care

2080941_S.jpgThe Missouri legislature has taken steps to make it easier for individuals to assume the role of being foster parents in our state.  Missouri Senate Bill 47 allows for distant relatives and individuals with family ties to receive additional subsidization for taking on the role of guardianship for children.

Suspicious reasons for marriage can lead to complicated divorce

22920438_S.jpgMarriage as an institution has become quite tricky. While the idea is that two people who love each other very much take vows to honor and respect each other, and spend the rest of their lives together, going by the high divorce rate one has to be realistic when speaking of marriage. In addition, outside of the fact that many marriages just do not work out as intended for any number of reasons, there are also those marriages where one has to question the motives behind the marriage in the first place.

Great-grandparents push for expanded rights to honor deceased boy

18381281_S.jpgFor people in Missouri who have grandchildren for whom they might want to have custody, court battles can end in heartbreak. While some judges do have concern for grandparents' rights in child custody cases, oftentimes the presumption is that a child's biological parents, if they are around, are the best choice to raise their children.

Supreme Court to hear arguments in Baby Veronica case

13159699_S.jpgFor the first time in 14 years, the U.S. Supreme Court is getting ready to rule on whether the Indian Child Welfare Act can stop an adoption, even if that adoption was granted by the custodial parent and done in accordance with state law. The ruling is expected to set precedent to future ICWA cases.

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.

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.

Divorce teaches father how to parent

7081183_s.jpgDivorce can be no doubt challenging for fathers. Going from seeing their children day-in and day-out, to only during scheduled weekends and weekday visits can be quite challenging. This, on top of the emotions and frustrations associated with a pending divorce, can at times feel like the worst thing in the world. However, the truth is that in many ways a divorce may be a blessing in disguise.
