Asset division issues for non-married couples

3151278_S.jpgBoth the definition of what constitutes a family, and the ability of Missouri law to keep up with changes in social attitudes are in a state of flux. Today what the law sees as a committed couple is not always confined to a heterosexual marriage, nor is an actual marriage a prerequisite. These developing new norms for how a couple can form can also interact with state law when couples decide to split up.

Attorneys helping members of the military with family law issues

20690107_S.jpgMissouri is home to many men and women serving in the United States military. Service members accept the fact that serving their country may involve uprooting their families at any time to move to a new base anywhere in the U.S. or the world, but relationships may suffer. This is particularly true where a service member is forced to leave his or her family for deployment to hostile locations overseas.

Can a child support order be modified?

11688201_S.jpgIn an earlier post, we discussed how child support is calculated. In Missouri, either the court or the Family Support Division can enter a child support order. Form 14 provides guidelines for calculating child support, but the court or FSD can choose to award a different amount than what the guidelines suggest. Once a child support order has been entered, the law favors keeping that order in place to ensure stability for children. As a result, modification of child support is difficult, yet possible.

How is paternity established in Missouri?

35835737_S.jpgEstablishing the paternity of a child provides definite advantages and benefits to both the father and the child, including but not limited to eligibility of the father to petition for child custody and visitation in the event of a divorce and the child's eligibility for Social Security benefits in the event of the father's death. But how is paternity legally established?
