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 financial planning can help reduce financial worries

11597904_s.jpgThere are plenty of concerns when it comes to getting divorced in Missouri. Especially for the spouse who was not in charge of the couple's bills or budgeting, understanding what a couple has, what each spouse is entitled to, and what the future will look like from a financial standpoint can be frightening. 

Let logic, not emotions, guide divorce agreements

9440662_s.jpgIt is not uncommon for one St. Louis spouse to want to try and work through marital issues, while the other is 100 percent adamant that divorce is the only option. In these cases, where emotions are tied up and each spouse is struggling to come to an agreement, it is easy to make snap decisions that can end up really hurting someone in the end. 

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. 

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.
