Disputes over property in Olympian's divorce proceedings

14244744_S.jpgNot all relationships go according to plan, and when things don't work out it's often best to start again. This does not always mean divorce, however, and some couples may simply choose to separate. Whatever their decision, Missouri separation laws require couples to live apart for a fixed period of time after they have filed for divorce. Unfortunately, some separations come with disputes, as has been the case with one high-profile split in recent weeks.

Splitting up property in an equitable division state

19985629_S.jpgOne of the main concerns that legally separated couples have is how to divide their assets, properties and debts. In Missouri, while there are no separation requirements, a couple may decide to enter into a separation agreement. These agreements can address concerns related to child support and child custody, as well as how to divide assets.

Why prenuptial agreements are needed for every couple

Thumbnail image for 18620693_S.jpgAt least one columnist insists that a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is absolutely essential for any woman who plans on marrying and becoming a stay-at-home mother. The great concern should be the compensation such an individual would receive after foregoing employment during the years where they would otherwise be receiving the highest amount of earnings.

Separation: A time to reevaluate a Missouri marriage

3204131_s.jpgWhile there is no separation requirement for divorce in Missouri, some couples still chose to enter into separation agreements. These agreements can address everything from child custody to property division and can have serious implications if there is a divorce filing later on down the road.

How to survive the separation while living together

20560064_s.jpgIn Missouri there is no legal separation requirement. However, for 30 days after filing for divorce a husband and wife need to be living apart. This does not necessarily mean living in separate houses though. Rather, it can mean living in the same house, yet sleeping in separate rooms. 

Fleetwood Mac drummer files for legal separation

19566576_S.jpgSeparation laws vary from state to state. Some require a couple to be separated for a certain amount of time before filing for divorce, while others -- like Missouri -- do not require separation at all. In some cases though, even when not required, couples still chose the route of legal separation.

Missouri parents supporting adult children going through divorce

15725929_s.jpgWhen a husband and wife decide to file for divorce, the decision affects everyone in their immediate circle. Typically, when we talk about separation or divorce we tend to focus on how it will affect children. And while this is still a concern for many, it's important to also address the fact that many adult children end up moving back in with their own parents following a divorce.

Many Missouri families plan separation for after the holidays

16330433_s.jpgMany families already know that this will be their last holiday season all living together under the same roof. In many cases, at least one spouse plans on a separation in the near future. Typically, these spouses tend to wait until once the holidays have passed to start to take steps to end the marriage.

Separation agreements can have implications in Missouri divorces

21964900_S.jpgMany couples in Missouri who are splitting up face the decision of whether to go with a legal separation or a divorce. Both scenarios have some similarities in terms of reaching agreements, yet both have different implications that can affect a person's financial future. This is why it is important to learn about both before coming to any kind of agreement.
