Study finds emotions play role in divorce negotiations

17185733_s.jpgIt should come as no surprise that during the divorce process it is quite natural and normal for a wide range of emotions to come up. Some husbands may feel guilty for filing for a divorce, while some wives may be angry that the marriage did not go as intended. Others may just regret that the marriage could not work out. However, what's important to keep in mind is that it is often these different emotions that end up influencing how a divorcing couple will negotiate with one another in order to reach some sort of a divorce settlement.

Recently, a study looked at 36 separate couples who had filed for divorce. All of these couples were in their 40s and had been married for roughly 15 years. Of those couples, around 75 percent had children together.

Missouri Senate passes bill that addresses child neglect

11966026_S.jpgChild safety is of utmost concern for people in Missouri and across the country. The Missouri Senate has successfully passed Senate Bill 628. This bill addresses several different matters. One of the most important issues addressed as part of this bill is child neglect and abuse. The bill creates a Joint Committee on Child Abuse and Neglect.

This committee will be comprised of seven members from both the House and Senate. The purpose of the new committee is to study child neglect and child abuse reporting as well as the investigations surrounding these reports. The committee will then determine a plan to assist in the process of making the decision to remove an at-risk child from a home.
