Not just the holidays: Domestic violence a problem all year long

15628283_s.jpgPeople tend to think there are more domestic violence issues around the holidays. However, one news station recently learned it's a problem all year round and that there are not necessarily spikes around the holidays.

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.

Dennis Rodman could end up jailed if he doesn't pay child support

14582732_s.jpgFlamboyant retired NBA player Dennis Rodman was recently ordered to pay his ex-wife half a million dollars in owed child support. If he does not pay, the 51-year-old will most likely end up in jail.

Relationship with in-laws has effect on Missouri marriages

20993513_s.jpgIt is no secret that many do not always get along with their in-laws. Many times, a mother-in-law is accused of being too prying, while a husband is accused of being too distant when it comes to his wife's parents. And while naturally the relationships with in-laws can become quite stressful, it also turns out that these relationships may have an impact on a couple's risk for divorce.

Divorce on the rise among older Americans

10852474_s.jpgWe all most likely know someone who decided to get a divorce after the age of 50. It could have been due to any number of reasons, including infidelity, boredom with the relationship, or just wanting to get more out of life. Whatever the cause, it seems to be a trend as there has been an increase in divorce among baby boomers in the last 20 years.

Missouri division dedicated to child support matters

19467641_S.jpgIn Missouri, officials work hard to track down and arrest those parents who owe money for child support. In fact, there's an entire division -- the Missouri Division of Child Support Enforcement -- that works on behalf of custodial parents who have not been getting their court-ordered child support. This division also works with both divorced and single unmarried parents.

Trend: Wives paying maintenance to ex-husbands

10287815_S.jpgIn Missouri, spousal support -- also commonly known as alimony -- is something that can be permanent. What this means is that unless there is a death, remarriage or a substantial change to circumstance, one ex-spouse could find themselves making payments to their ex for years and years.

Make it an easier transition for children during divorce

14427547_s.jpgDivorce can be hard for parents and children. For the parents, this often leads to the temptation to start buying children gifts in order to cheer them up and to feel better about the divorce. And while this is a natural reaction, the truth is to a child this could look like their parent is trying to buy their feelings, which can of course do more harm than good.

'Toddlers & Tiaras': Dad wants sole custody after pageant costume

14863793_S.jpgThere's one thing about allowing a child to participate in beauty pageants. But, it's quite another if the costumes being worn by the child are not age appropriate and could be viewed at as sexual in nature. For any parent, the thought that a custodial parent is exploiting their child is surely disturbing and could be enough of a reason to take that parent back to court for child custody.
