Women who are active in marital finances do better in divorce

Missouri divorce law attempts to treat the genders equally and without favoritism. However, societal practices and long-held cultural values seem to leave an indelible mark that favors men over women. According to several reports, there is a gender-gap in financial matters between men and women during a separation and a divorce.

2 primary concerns for high-asset divorces

If you are one-half of a high-asset union in the St. Louis area and considering divorce, you might believe you have things all figured out. You have probably thought about ending the relationship for some time. Though you might have taken measures to prepare for this kind of event before you exchanged vows with your spouse, divorce is not always easy. 

Divorce and prenup go hand-in-hand for many couples

A nationwide increase in couples seeking prenuptial agreements is reported. However, those planning their weddings in Missouri will likely agree that it remains a difficult subject to broach. The idea of preparing for divorce, even before the marriage, remains the thorny bit of this conversation. Advisers maintain that it is less uncomfortable if the subject is brought up when a couple is still dating. At that stage, it will be an exchange of ideas rather than a situation in which it can be mistaken as one partner demanding a prenuptial agreement.

Fighting for pets in divorce

Family pets to some people are more than just animals; they are members of the family. Their are not pieces of property to just be passed around or tossed aside. Unfortunately, when it comes to divorce, the state of Missouri only considers them as property and does not concern itself with their well-being.
