Establishing paternity can open legal doors for a father

There are several ways that a Missouri man may be designated as the father of a child. If he is married to the child's mother at the time of the birth, then he may be presumed to be the father. He may also acknowledge that he is the father of a child by signing a declaration and including his name on the child's birth certificate.

Money may not be a cure for all marital woes

Depending upon who you ask, money may be considered the greatest of goods or the cause of all evil in the world. For those who do not have enough money to make ends meet, the idea of having significant wealth may seem like a dream in which all of their concerns would melt away. However, for those who have seen how money conflicts can tear apart families, the idea of excessive wealth may be a nightmare and something to be avoided.

What courts will consider when making child custody decisions

In the wake of a divorce, it can be very difficult for parents to fully comprehend the challenges that their kids will face as their lives are forever changed. In Missouri, parents are allowed to attempt to work out their own child custody plans, but those plans must ultimately serve the best interests of the kids to whom they will apply. If parents cannot for whatever reason settle these matters, courts will step in and create child custody plans for them.

Do you need information on sole custody and joint custody?

Going through divorce may be one of the most trying times in your life. You may have struggled for some time to even come to this decision, and now you have a number of other life-changing decisions ahead of you. In particular, you likely worry about how the choices you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse make will impact your children.

What is considered marital property in Missouri?

Many Missouri couples live by the phrase, "What's yours is mine, and what's mine is yours." That is to say, they are willing to share what they have with their partners and expect that what their partners have is also available for their use. However, this collective interpretation of martial property may not be an accurate representation of how property is actually classified under the laws of the state.
