Is your soon-to-be ex hiding assets from you?

You may be like many spouses who are content to let your partner take care of the finances. Payday comes, and your spouse pays the bills on time. Perhaps you have some investments, life insurance and other monthly transactions you left up to your spouse. As long as no problems arose, you were happy remaining in the dark.

What is a QDRO and why might you need one?

When going through divorce, many aspects of your life and your soon-to-be ex-spouse's life will need assessing. Because you will essentially split two shared lives into two individual lives, many minute decisions will need making. In particular, you may have concerns regarding property division and ensuring that you receive your rightful share of the assets.

When life changes, your child support may also change

When you and your spouse married, you probably expected the marriage to last forever. When things didn't work out that way, you may have felt confused and uncertain. The divorce settlement left you with a fair portion of your marital assets and debts and a child support payment based on your income, your spouse's income and the total of your other obligations.

Stepparent adoption brings families closer

Your life changed forever when you married. Whether you had children of your own or experienced it for the first time with your spouse's child, you understand now why people are willing to sacrifice so much for their children. While your family feels complete, you want to take your relationship to the next logical step.

Determining where your child's needs most lie in divorce

Children are, by nature, resilient people who can bounce back from adversity and overcome obstacles life tosses their way. As a Missouri parent, you do your best to support, encourage and inspire your kids to reach their full potentials. When you shared the news of your impending divorce with them, you figured you'd face several challenges in the near future as they adapt to their new lifestyles. Hopefully, you have a strong support network on hand to help you.
