Tips on improving credit before and after a divorce

Many Missouri couples have amassed a significant volume of wealth within their marriage and are in a good position to divide their marital assets during a divorce. That said, there are many cases in which one or both spouses have neglected to develop or maintain a positive credit history. Failure to have good credit can lead to a wide range of problems after a divorce, including difficulty opening new lines of credit and even problems finding a new job.

Having second thoughts about a child custody case?

For Missouri parents, few things are more stressful than the end of a marriage. Not only does divorce represent the end of the bond between a husband and wife, it also brings about a wide range of worries about how parenting time will be divided. It is not uncommon for parents to have second thoughts during a child custody case and to question whether they are making the right move in dividing the family.

Prenups can ease divorce settlement woes

More and more couples are making the decision to draft prenuptial agreements prior to walking down the aisle. In fact, a survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers reveals that members experienced a recent increase in prenups of 63 percent. Many Missouri residents understand that these marital contracts can be a powerful financial tool, and can make reaching a divorce settlement far easier if that need should arise. Instead of feeling uncomfortable broaching the topic, many couples are eager to discuss the matter with a family law attorney.

Data collection and your Missouri divorce

With the advent of smartphones, life has changed for many Missouri residents. We now have the power to find the cheapest gas prices, locate the nearest Chinese restaurant, keep up with friends and family and catch up on work -- all using a relatively tiny personal computer that fits in our pockets and is also able to make a simple phone call. What few realize, however, is that the same technology that can give us almost instant driving directions to our next destination is also able to track our whereabouts at any given point in time. For spouses who are preparing to divorce, smartphones can be used to secure a great deal of information.

Management approaches for fathers' rights cases

When faced with a legal contest to determine child custody matters, many Missouri men feel overwhelmed by both the legal and emotional aspects of their case. This can lead to increased stress, which can be both a health concern and a detriment to proper decision-making. In order to attain a favorable fathers' rights outcome, it is essential to implement proper management efforts.
