Child support is for the child's welfare and benefit

39649460_S.jpgResearch shows that approximately one-half of marriages end in divorce. Many of these marriages involve children who will be affected by the divorce. In addition, a significant percentage of children born in the United States are born to unwed parents. Based upon these statistics, it is easy to see that there is a great need for child support throughout Missouri as well as the rest of the nation.

A concerned parent is always able to act alongside experienced guidance to ensure protection of his or her best interests.

Fighting for child support often a battle better faced with help

Practical tips regarding child support in Missouri

Typically, the changes are many and how adaptable a child may be varies depending on individual circumstances.

Avoiding contentious debates about child support, custody, visitation and other child-rearing issues may be helpful.

Child support guidelines reviewed in Missouri

37197042_S.jpgEvery state, including Missouri, has its own regulations that govern court decisions regarding child support.

Ongoing debate regarding stepparents and child support

9949917_S.jpgMany fairy tales depict stepparents as mean and unloving. In real life, however, this is typically far from being the case as many stepparents, including many in Missouri, enjoy happy and harmonious connections to the children they've come to call their own through marriage. In fact, there have been cases where stepparents have sought custody of stepchildren after divorce. What is not so typical, however, is a stepparent being ordered to pay child support.
