The decision to marry is an important one.

Dividing assets in a Missouri divorce

Over the course of their years together, married couples in Missouri and across the country tend to accumulate assets. While assets such as real estate and retirement funds are typically some of their most valuable ones, others -- such as investment accounts, vehicles and frequent flyer miles -- can be significant. Couples who choose to divorce must work to divide both these assets and their liabilities as part of the path to the next stage of their lives.
