Family law deals with the challenges of changing families

10180322_S.jpgAs society evolves, its foundation adapts along with its changes. Nowhere is this more evident than in the American family. While the traditional nuclear family made up of a father, mother, and one or more children is certainly still in existence in Missouri and across the country, it has been joined by other forms of familial arrangements. What has not changed is the value placed on having a supportive and stable family, regardless of its makeup.

Missouri same-sex marriage may be law of the state in 2015

272775_S.jpgThe family law question of whether same-sex couples can legally marry in the state of Missouri continues to evolve. At the present time, the state does not recognize same-sex marriages.

Same-sex divorce now possible in Missouri

23491565_S.jpgThe same-sex marriage issue has been taking on more significance in the U.S. for several years now. With many states moving forward with the legalization of same-sex unions, it was only a matter of time before Missouri family law attorneys would have to face a new challenge.
