Grounds for annulment in Missouri

14368614_S.jpgFor the majority of cases in Missouri, the end of a marriage means a divorce. But in very few cases, a divorce is not necessary. In these instances, couples may be able to file for annulment. In this process, the courts deem the marriage to essentially have never happened. Missouri law has very stringent laws regarding these types of separation, and specific criteria must be met to qualify.

Do I have to pay child support after bankruptcy?

19208847_S.jpgWhen Missouri families go through a divorce, custody is generally granted to one parent or to the other. This tends to leave the other parent with the order to pay support to cover the everyday expenses associated with raising a child. Typically, the Missouri court system tries to balance between having the non-custodial pay enough to cover the child's expenses without leaving them in poverty. This sometimes doesn't work out, however, and the payer finds themselves filing for bankruptcy.

Don't assume that marriage and family law are same in each state

41597455_S.jpgAnyone who has followed the publicity surrounding the same-sex marriage debate have probably heard that, until the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision, it was legal in some states but not in others. In fact, if a same-sex couple was married in a state where their marriage was legal and then moved to a state that had not yet legalized same-sex marriage, they were not considered legally married in the new state of residence.

Assisted reproduction raises tricky legal issues

14119122_S.jpgCouples who are unable to conceive often turn to other means of having children. Luckily, they have many options, including surrogacy, artificial insemination, and egg fertilization. However, these options can raise some complicated legal questions. Having a baby should be a positive experience. With so many difficult legal issues, a couple can very easily become overwhelmed.

The benefits of a collaborative divorce

34744296_S.jpgThe first images that generally come to people's minds when they hear the word "divorce" are couples screaming at each other, going through lengthy court battles and generally being very unhappy with the outcome of the case. While this is all-too-common, it does not have to be the only way. One of the easier ways to handle the end of a marriage is to go through a collaborative divorce.
