If you read celebrity news, you may already know that actress Gwyneth Paltrow and musician Chris Martin recently finalized their divorce. The split initially made headlines for Paltrow's use of the phrase "consciously uncoupled" in place of "divorce," and now over two years later, BBC has reported that they are officially and legally uncoupled.
When a marriage ends, it can cause everyone in the family to feel stress and anxiety. Adding to the stress is the inescapable fact that parents have important decisions to make at a time when their emotions are running high. Mistakes can be made and indeed they sometimes are. Even worse, many Missouri parents find themselves unable to resolve their custody disputes, leading to litigation. If you are in the middle of a divorce and are consistently at odds with your co-parent, do not risk your rights simply to put an end to the proceedings. Instead, fight for your parental rights by working with an attorney.
