Man says he was tricked into giving away custody rights

11681212_S.jpgOne man in another state is without his daughter after an incident with Child Protective Services that was recently highlighted in the news. The man claims that he was tricked into signing away custody rights in a moment of duress and that he did not understand the document he was signing. He is now taking the matter to court. Missouri fathers who aren't able to see their own children may find themselves empathizing with the man's situation.

Splitting marital assets includes retirement, investment accounts

Ending a marriage is never easy. When two people have built a life together, it can take a bit of strategy to untangle the threads. One facet of divorce is property division, where the two parties divide the marital assets between them. Retirement accounts and investment accounts typically represent the divorcing couple's largest collection of funds. In Missouri, each type of account has its own rules for separation, and by following the rules, an individual can avoid common mistakes that could potentially reduce his or her portion of the sum.

Family law matters don't have to be agonizing

Divorce and disagreement seem to go hand in hand. Many people feel that there is no way to avoid unpleasantness while ending a marriage. The truth is, while it may not be easy or even guaranteed, it is possible. A person who finds him or herself in a family law court in Missouri can try to take advantage of common threads that can lead to a more amicable parting.

After the dust clears, one or both partners could be left with a sum of funds that will need to fully or partially finance their lifestyles for years to come. By choosing to invest one's portion of the marital assets, a Missouri resident may be able to get more mileage from the share of the divorce settlement that he or she receives.
