Prenuptial agreement can prevent future marriage trouble

115334749_s.jpgPlanning a wedding can be both stressful and exciting, and as the big day approaches, couples try to make sure everything is in order so that the ceremony can go off without a hitch. The ceremony is just the first step in what will hopefully be a long and happy marriage, and Missouri couples may want to do some preparation for the long haul. One way to prevent future marriage trouble is to have a prenuptial agreement in place before a couple says "I do."

Getting married? You might consider a prenuptial agreement

80616940_s.jpgWhen Missouri couples are planning their weddings, divorce is likely the last thing on their minds. It can be hard to imagine one's marriage coming to an end before it even begins, but a bit of legal preparation now can protect a person's assets in the future. A prenuptial agreement might be the way to go, and experts say today's brides and grooms are embracing the prenup like no generation before. 

Adoption, family law and your tax return

87334894_s.jpgMissouri parents are probably preparing to file their annual tax returns. Whether a person hires a professional to prepare their taxes or decided to prepare a return by themselves, people usually want to know what deductions and credits are available. Since tax laws can change each year, parents who finalized an adoption in 2019 -- a matter of family law -- might be unaware that the federal government is offering a tax credit just for them. 

Considering a surrogacy agreement? You're not alone

101719699_s.jpgSurrogacy is not a new idea. If a Missouri woman is facing possible complications with conception or pregnancy, she may be considering a surrogacy agreement. The process of having a child carried and delivered by another woman can be traced back to the dawn of modern civilization, and examples can even be found in religious texts like the Christian Bible. For a long time, many people viewed surrogacy as something taboo, but in recent years, society is changing its attitude. 

November celebrates an important aspect of family law

49601855_S.jpgPeople often view court proceedings as a stressful or negative experience. This is understandable, because in some cases, legal action follows a troubling or traumatic situation like a crime or the end of a marriage. Many people associate family law with matters like divorce or child custody battles. While these are certainly matters that Missouri families may have to face, an annual campaign strives to remind people that there are also happy and positive matters that are handled by family law courts. 

Kim Kardashian West reveals her surrogacy agreement

48593406_S.jpgCelebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have made headlines again. In addition to their accomplishments as reality television stars, music industry favorites and champions for a variety of social causes and charities, the couple is also raising four beautiful children. While fans in Missouri and around the world enjoy "keeping up with" the latest news on the couple, many may be surprised to learn that the latest addition to the Kardashian/West brood, a son named Psalm, was brought into the world via a surrogacy agreement

Legislators propose changes to family law

60917037_S.jpgMany Missouri families might be excited to learn about some changes on the horizon. Adoption is a legal process and falls under the category of family law. Families want to adopt for a myriad of reasons, and children in need of a loving family may have to wait a long time for that dream to become reality. 

Family law can help children find home for the holidays

45990378_S.jpgThe leftover turkey is probably long gone, and many Missouri residents have probably set their sights on upcoming December holidays, but November still holds a few festivities. November is National Adoption Month, and many communities across the state aim to educate and celebrate. Adoption is a matter of family law, and many children dream of finding a forever family with the help of the court.
