Raising children together after a divorce

Most parents in Missouri would quickly agree that parenting is difficult. When two parents are no longer in a romantic relationship, there are often even more struggles. Fortunately, there are some steps that parents can take to help create a peaceful co-parenting relationship following a divorce.

Family law: Situations in which a postnuptial agreement is useful

When couples in Missouri and across the country are planning their wedding, it may be difficult for them to consider a time when they are not happily wed. For this and a variety of other reasons, they may determine that creating a prenuptial agreement, a family law tool that can help guide the divorce process, is not necessary. However, as time passes and their circumstances change, they may ultimately determine that some protections need to be in place. 

Divorce: Many Missouri spouses say these issues were factors

If you've been married 10 or more years, you've no doubt had to overcome challenges in your relationship. Some issues are definitely more serious than others. For instance, if your spouse leaves dirty dishes in the sink, it might irritate you but wouldn't necessarily make or break your relationship. If you discover that your spouse cheated, that might be the straw that breaks the camel's back. Many Missouri spouses say infidelity was a causal factor in their divorces.

Do grandparents have visitation rights with their grandchildren?

The relationship between a child and his or her grandparent is sometimes a strong one. However, there are times when a parent in Missouri may wish to deny a grandparent access to children. Despite a parent's desire, grandparents are often legally entitled to visitation with their grandchildren in certain circumstances.
