Parenting time and the child custody agreement

10745492_S.jpgThere are many factors that need to be taken into consideration when Missouri parents decide to divorce. Perhaps one of the most important factors relates to child custody. Child custody relates to who will be responsible for the child on a daily basis, who will be responsible for making decisions related to the child and parenting time associated with the child.

Child support is for the child's welfare and benefit

39649460_S.jpgResearch shows that approximately one-half of marriages end in divorce. Many of these marriages involve children who will be affected by the divorce. In addition, a significant percentage of children born in the United States are born to unwed parents. Based upon these statistics, it is easy to see that there is a great need for child support throughout Missouri as well as the rest of the nation.

The prenuptial agreement is essential if a business is involved

46779396_S.jpgThe average Missouri couple now waits until they are older to marry. Up until a few years ago, it was not uncommon for individuals to marry in their early 20s. However, in today's society, the average marital age is hovering closer to 30. With this in mind, the need for a prenuptial agreement can be critical.

Child custody case focused on parental intelligence, not abuse

34789212_S.jpgWhen a child is removed from the care of the parents, there is usually very good reason for that set of circumstances. Most often, there is serious evidence of abuse or neglect that led to the decision. In many cases, the parents were given ample opportunity to make changes that would allow them to get their kids back. There are child custody cases in Missouri and elsewhere, however, in which the decision to remove a child from his or her home is difficult to comprehend.

Nesting as a form of child custody

10783408_S.jpgDivorce can be difficult for everyone involved. This includes the parents, the children and even the extended family. However, for most Missouri families, once the decision is made that the marriage cannot be saved, thoughts automatically turn to child custody decisions and how the divorce will affect the children. These decisions will have a lasting impact on the children and their relationships with their parents and extended family.
