Missouri couples who divorce often face many challenges as they negotiate settlements. When a couple has children together, complications easily arise concerning the development of a new parenting plan. A leading causal factor in many divorces is often communication breakdown; therefore, it's easy to see how disagreements regarding how children should be raised and who should financially support them may affect a divorce agreement.
Married couples in Missouri don't typically envision themselves standing in courtrooms fighting over how much time they will spend with their children. However, this is exactly where many parents wind up when divorce leads to disagreements about such matters. Parents know what's best for their children, yet divorced parents may have different opinions where child custody is concerned.
Celebrities who divorce face the same types of challenges that everyday folks in Missouri might when they decide to call it quits in their marriages. In fact, some might say movie stars, singers and others in the limelight have it even tougher because their personal business is often aired in public. Kate Hudson might agree as she makes her way back to court regarding her 12-year-old son whose father has asked the court to re-evaluate their parenting plan.
Following divorce, Missouri parents often have to make arrangements to meet their former spouses so their children can switch houses. Child custody exchanges are a typical part of post divorce life for many families. Not so typical, but also not all that uncommon, are contentious situations that arise during such exchanges.
Many Missouri parents wind up back in court after divorce when disagreements arise pertaining to their children. In addition to visitation and support matters, it often occurs that one or the other parent will seek permission for child relocation to another state. Because such plans may bear significant impact on everyone involved (not just the parent planning to move) the court has the final say as to whether such a move can take place.
In Missouri and elsewhere, January is known as "divorce month" because of substantial increase in inquiries about the process during this time each year. There are various schools of thought as to why many couples delay proceeding with divorce until after the holidays. For some, reasons involve financial matters; others may want to avoid parenting plan disputes during family gatherings and holiday celebrations.
For many former spouses in Missouri, it was a long, hard road traveled to achieve amicable solutions to divorce matters pertaining to their children. Even after a plan is set in place, however, challenging issues may continue to arise. For instance, if a parent seeks modification of court orders for the purpose of child relocation, it can lead to a whole new string of contentious debates.
Sidra Saucedo, a former model who worked for Seven Jeans and Alberta Ferretti has been engaged in a contentious battle with the father of one of her children. Many Missouri readers may already know that the two have been fighting over child custody in court for years now. The father of the 11-year-old child, propriety trader Steven Schonfeld, has apparently been trying to keep Saucedo away from her.
Every Missouri family is different, and many have gone through divorce. With a new holiday season just around the bend, it might be a good idea for divorced parents to review existing court orders and make adjustments for visitation as needed. Sometimes, the court specifies exactly which parent will be with the children on each holiday.
