Attorneys helping members of the military with family law issues

20690107_S.jpgMissouri is home to many men and women serving in the United States military. Service members accept the fact that serving their country may involve uprooting their families at any time to move to a new base anywhere in the U.S. or the world, but relationships may suffer. This is particularly true where a service member is forced to leave his or her family for deployment to hostile locations overseas.

Missouri Supreme Court intervenes in same-sex divorce issue

19136293_S.jpgThe matter of same-sex marriage in Missouri has been growing in significance since last summer, when we covered a matter involving the attempt by two women who were married in another state attempting to divorce in Missouri, which does not recognize same-sex marriage.

How to change a Missouri divorce settlement or decree

14532822_S.jpgOrdinarily, when a couple divorces, they do so because at least one of the spouses wants to get a fresh start with his or her life apart from the other. The key to this objective is a divorce settlement or decree that both sides can accept as final, so that the issues that led to the divorce do not have to keep being revisited.

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.
