What types of child custody are recognized in Missouri?

When going through a divorce that involves children, it can be a challenge to figure out which custody arrangement will work best. Every family is different, so what works for one may not necessarily work for another. Thankfully, Missouri recognizes various types of child custody arrangements so that every family can put together a plan that works specifically for them.

Seeking a child custody modification

When going through a divorce that involves children, custody orders are created to fit a family's circumstances at the time. There is always hope that the child custody order will work long term, but there are no guarantees. Thankfully, parents in Missouri can seek modifications to these orders when they feel that doing so is justified.

What happens when the primary child custody holder needs to move?

While there are those who hope they never have to move, sometimes the need to relocate cannot be avoided. Life happens and one must simply do his or her best. What happens, though, if a primary child custody holder needs to move? According to the laws of Missouri, this is not something that he or she can do without the approval of the noncustodial parent or the court.
