What is considered marital property in Missouri?

11847067_S.jpgWhen two people get married, they expect that they will spend the rest of their lives together, and they often begin to build that life by accruing assets. A new bed in which to sleep together, a new house to raise their family, a new car to take the children to soccer practice, these are all things that married couples might buy to accommodate their new life. But not all marriages last, and in the event of a divorce, the question of who gets what suddenly becomes significant.

Prison sentences could stop child support payments

7362573_S.jpgChild support is almost always a highly debated topic among parents, whether they divorced or never married. The custodial parent often feels that he or she is struggling to raise a child without the financial assistance he or she deserves while non-custodial parents struggle to justify allocating some of their hard-earned money toward a child they never see and a parent they hardly know. This issue is especially pressing for prisoners, who are incapable of making a significant enough income to make most child support payments.

Helping grandparents with visitation rights

14310189_S.jpgWhen a couple decides to divorce, there are many legal issues that may arise, and many parties who may be less than satisfied with the results of the divorce. Oftentimes custodial parents feel that they are not paid enough in child support, or noncustodial parents feel that they do not get to see their children enough. While each of these may be valid concerns, there is a significant focus on the outcome of a divorce agreement as it pertains to children and parents, but very little attention is paid to grandparents.

What are Missouri's adoption laws?

16972215_S.jpgThere are many reasons that an individual or a couple may wish to adopt a child: some same-sex couples who cannot conceive together choose to adopt in order to expand their families and some people simply want to provide a better life for children who have no caregiving relationships with their parents. Regardless of the reasons, those who wish to adopt are encouraged to do so, but armed with the necessary knowledge.

Some Missouri counties struggle with same sex marriage

272775_S.jpgThanks to a landmark decision by the Supreme Court, same-sex couples can now legally be married in every state in the country. This means there is an entirely new demographic of people who will need legal assistance with family law matters, such as prenuptial agreements, adoption or even divorce. The ability to marry comes with many other issues that same-sex couples will need to address. Of course, there are some counties in which that is still not the primary concern of same-sex couples.

Missouri women accused of child abuse

24273855_S.jpgOne of the primary responsibilities of family law is to protect children who cannot protect themselves. This is why when couples are going through a divorce, a great deal of focus is put on determining the custody arrangement based on what is in the best interests of the child. The courts want to ensure that the children will be treated well and cared for so that they develop into healthy, productive members of society.

Seven dead in domestic violence shooting

Thumbnail image for 19014677_S.jpgFamily law covers a wide range of legal matters, including divorce, child custody and prenuptial agreements. While these are perhaps the most common and well-known practices of family law, domestic violence may be the most important because of the potential drastic consequences. This is not to understate the serious impact that a divorce or custody agreement can have on a family, but to raise awareness about a family issue that may not be widely recognized.
