Lovely images of satin, lace, ribbons, veils, tuxes and chocolate are often evoked when Missouri couples plan their weddings. They may also have long, into-the-night discussions about their future plans and goals, perhaps including how many children they hope to have one day. For some, however, any mention of a prenuptial agreement is thought to be a romance-killer.
Infowars fans in Missouri and throughout the nation may be aware that one of its stars, Alex Jones, is going through a contentious divorce. He and his former wife are currently facing a nasty child custody battle. Her side told the court Jones has been diagnosed with a narcissistic personality disorder. The mother of three is seeking sole or joint custody of her children.
Not all unwed dads are the deadbeat, disengaged, unhelpful parents that the media often makes them out to be. In Missouri and elsewhere, there are many who are willing to work hard to fully financially support and otherwise raise their children. The problem is that many unmarried fathers run into serious child custody obstacles right at the starting gate.
When someone in Missouri files for divorce, it makes good sense to prepare for the challenges that may arise. Those who have children have their work cut out for them as they must negotiate an agreeable parenting plan with their soon-to-be former spouses. Some are lucky enough to face little or no complications in this regard.
