Expressions of anger can impact custody decisions

49635486_S.jpgBen Franklin is cited as having said, "Anger is never without a reason, but seldom with a good one." And while these are very sound words, in theory, putting them into practice can be very challenging. The fact is, we all have experiences that can drive us to distraction and even lead us to falling prey to some very negative emotions.

Study demonstrates the value of grandparents

42309401_S.jpgAs a grandparent, you likely believe that you can play an important role in your grandchild's life. And as it happens, there is research that proves you are correct in this assumption. In fact, one study produced results that demonstrated the positive effects that grandparents can have when they have greater involvement with their grandchildren.

After all, the habits and values espoused in the military are intended to help you get through the most challenging situations imaginable. But did you ever stop and consider how the techniques used for military training can be effectively applied for parenting purposes?

Unmarried couples need to keep finances simple and separate

35137027_S.jpgEven if your relationship with your live-in partner could not be better, be aware that things can change over time. Any number of unforeseeable factors could contribute to a parting of the ways. And if this happens, you want to make the break as clean as possible and you want to retain that which belongs to you.

Keep your emotions in check during a legal separation

50563212_S (1).jpgIf you and your spouse are considering a legal separation, then you are likely feeling a mixture of strong and complicated feelings. It is understandable if you are experiencing intense anxiety. After all, your marriage is in the balance, and you have no idea what the future holds.

The Progression of Family Law in Missouri

53466713_S.jpgIf you're a Missouri father who is in the process of divorcing or otherwise severing ties with your child's other parent, you may be worried that you will not receive fair treatment in regard to child custody or child support decisions rendered by the court.

While this sounds reasonable, the fact is that such determinations are always subjective to a certain degree, and may not produce the desired results.

Parental psychological evaluation process may be flawed

39459672_S.jpgIf you suffer from a mental illness, your life is filled with challenges. And this is especially true if you have a child.

Unfortunately, if you should become embroiled in a contentious divorce, your condition could be used against you for custody purposes. 

Military spouses sacrifice career aspirations to their detriment

Of course, there are long periods of time when your spouse is deployed or on maneuvers during which you are solely in charge of all household duties. You may have also had to move numerous times, following your spouse to his or her next assignment.
