Knowing when to contact a divorce attorney

A great many spouses who eventually end their marriages spend an enormous amount of time considering that possibility prior to taking any action. Some are uncertain at which point they should contact a divorce attorney, and waver in making this critical decision. It is important to understand that when it comes to matters of Missouri divorce, including property division and child custody, taking a proactive approach is the best possible course of action.

Unusual fathers' rights case makes national headlines

An unusual case has led to a great deal of media attention in Missouri and across the nation. The case centers on a family in which a man and his wife invited another woman into their marriage. A resulting pregnancy added to their unusual family dynamic, and eventually to a child custody case that has set legal precedent, and resulted in a fathers' rights victory.

Really Bad Divorce Advice....

This is an article from Huffington Post contributor Jackie Pilossoph, and I could not agree more with it:

This is a piece of divorce advice from one divorced man to another: "Separate yourself as fast as you can. Limit your contact as much as you can. With kids it's tough but try not to communicate. Trust me. Just move on and move on fast." Honestly, reading this guy's advice made me sad, depressed, and angry, and left me with a feeling of hopelessness. Here's why: When men and women get divorced, it's very understandable that they don't want to talk to each other for several reasons. Tensions are high, anger and resentment are ever present, and the feelings of shock, hurt, anxiety and fear are at their highest. 

Father asks court for custody modification after video goes viral

Some Missouri residents are aware of a viral video clip of an episode of Dr. Phil that has recently made the rounds. The video features a 13-year-old girl who is blatantly disrespectful and rude. Her parents are no longer together, and her father is now asking for a custody modification based on how the child's behavior has been addressed by her mother.
