There are two different ways that people in Missouri and elsewhere view millennials. They are either thought to be cautious planners or too quick to make big life decisions. In terms of family law, many experts believe them to be the former rather than the latter in many ways, particularly when it comes to marriage and divorce.
Adoption can be a beautiful thing. While there is a lot of good that comes from giving children in need their forever families, it is not a process that is taken lightly. Children are not just given to anyone. Those in Missouri who are interested in adoption may find it harder to get approved than they thought it would be. A family law attorney may be able to help with the process.
Being rich and famous seems like it would be a great thing. Maybe it is, but who knows. The grass is always greener on the other side, right? For instance, Brendan Fraser may not appreciate his money and celebrity status all that much right now as he has been ordered to pay nearly $1 million a year in alimony and child support. Alimony is a family law issue that affects numerous individuals in Missouri, and like Mr. Fraser, there are those who may not be too pleased with how much they have been requested to pay.
You did it! You made the decision to grow your family through adoption. This is an admirable choice, one that will forever change your life and the life of a child. Now, how do you get started? This is where a Missouri family law attorney may be able to help.
Post-divorce finances can be a bear to figure out. For a lot of people in Missouri, the dissolution of marriage comes with a big drop in income and an increase in expenses. Thankfully, an alimony order can be included in a divorce settlement for the spouse who is in financial need. What if after all is said and done, you, as the recipient, need your alimony adjusted or extended? A family law attorney may be able to help you with that.
