Pets becoming sticking point in divorce proceedings

Missouri couples may have heard that pet custody is becoming an increasingly important matter for many who are going through the process of divorce. This may be due to several factors. Firstly, many couples are refraining from having children until later in life and opting for pets instead. Additionally, some pet parents are spending more money on their pets than ever before.

Men asking for more recognition of their rights

Lawmakers in Missouri, Maine, Arizona, Colorado and Delaware have taken significant steps to make more gender-neutral policies regarding custody rights. Now, advocates are asking for other states to follow suit in acknowledging fathers' rights.

Director going through difficult divorce

Missouri fans of "Fahrenheit 9/11" and other works of director Michael Moore may be surprised to learn that Moore is currently going through a divorce from his wife of 23 years, Kathleen Glynn. She has worked as a producer on some of Moore's films, and the couple has brought in tens of millions of dollars during their time together. Much of the divorce centers on figuring out how to best divide the money between the couple. A major difficulty, though, comes from his wife's building of a $2 million vacation mansion in the couple's native Michigan. Glynn allegedly used marital funds to build the house, and its building has, according to the director's attorneys, adversely affected Moore's image and reputation.

Simplifying the property division phase of divorce

Divorce rates are climbing in Missouri and around the nation, and for many couples this means that preparation for the financial aspects of the process is essential. A clear and reasonable path to a settlement and separation may be the best way to avoid conflict and give both partners resolution.
