Prenuptial agreement can be the first step to a lasting marriage

44969608_S.jpgMarriage is looked upon as the beginning of a wonderful journey that a couple will share for the rest of their lives in Missouri. The reality is that almost half of all marriages end in divorce. People enter into it promise to share worldly goods, support each other and care for each other in sickness and health. Divorce can change this perspective, particularly where worldly goods are concerned. Having a prenuptial agreement can simplify property division.

The family pet: an emerging family law issue

42309764_S.jpgPets are generally treated as beloved family members. The court systems, however, tend to see a pet as property, even in cases of disputed divorces. For some individuals in Missouri, custody of the family pet becomes a contentious issue when settling a divorce in family law court. With the exception of two states, courts will treat a pet as personal property, but attitudes about this issue are changing.  

Minor emancipation can be a path to future success

49045505_S.jpgOne woman's journey to successful pageant queen started with less than ideal beginnings. She lacked support from her parents and needed to do many things for herself for which children are not typically responsible. At 16, she was granted a minor emancipation and was able to take more control of her life. Individuals in Missouri may find the details of the woman's story inspiring. 

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. 

Here's why you need a surrogacy agreement

35403202_S.jpgFor families who are unable to have children through conventional methods, surrogacy may be a viable option. Many Missouri parents have wonderful relationships with the women who serve as surrogates, but a good relationship does not replace the legal protections found within a surrogacy agreement. A contract between a surrogate and the soon-to-be parents is essential for protecting everyone involved.

Could you benefit from a prenuptial agreement?

43131363_S.jpgUnlike their parents, millennials in Missouri tend to put off marriage, prioritizing other aspects of life. However, this does not mean that millennials are swearing off marriage altogether. Many people in this generation want to establish themselves in their career or build a more solid financial foundation before saying "I do." A carefully worded prenuptial agreement may be essential for protecting assets accrued before marriage.

Include prenuptial agreement in your wedding plans

17972136_S.jpgAfter the venue is booked, dress bought and reception is planned, most engaged couples feel like it is time for them to sit back and wait for the big day. Before propping up your feet and relaxing, you and your fiance should take one more thing into consideration -- a prenuptial agreement. While not what most people in Missouri have on their mind when leading up to their big day, a prenup provides invaluable protections for everyone involved.

Protecting personal assets is easy with a prenuptial agreement

26271411_S.jpgThe idea of even discussing the possibility of divorce can be abhorrent to many people. TV and movies have a helping hand in this, as they seem quick to vilify those who suggest that a prenup might be a good idea. While some Missouri couples might fare fine without addressing potential issues in a prenuptial agreement, those who have significant personal assets have a lot to lose.

Family law matters don't have to wreck your finances

17610182_S.jpgFiling for divorce can have a profound impact on a person's future. While many expect that ending an unhappy marriage will likely lead to a better future, few understand the potential financial implications. Family law might seem complicated when it comes to this matter, but divorcing couples in Missouri can ensure their future financial security by being as prepared as possible for the process.
