How social media can negatively impact divorce and child custody proceedings

39567606_S.jpgAccording to the Pew Research Center, as of 2015, an estimated 65 percent of U.S. adults had at least one social media account. Facebook remains, by far, the most popular of these sites with an estimated 72 percent of U.S. adult Internet users reporting having a Facebook account.

Missouri child support modifications

Thumbnail image for 36312005_S.jpgFor many Missouri divorcees and their children, child support remains a greater issue. After a divorce or when unmarried parents separate, the custodial parent may be entitled to child support payments from the other parents. The main purpose of child support payments it to ensure that there are adequate funds to cover the expenses that the parent incurs as a result of having the child most of the time.

Risks for unmarried couples and owning property

15539885_S.jpgThe legal system assumes that all property is purchase with the consent of both parties for the use of both parties; therefore the property is marital property. If the marriage should end and the couple splits up, the property that the spouse purchases together will be divide equally. But, unfortunately for couples that are not married, the splitting of property is not as simple.

What do you tell your kids when you're getting a divorce?

32440806_S.jpgOne of the hardest parts of a divorce is telling your children about it. For them, this is a tragic and hard event in their lives. Kids always want to see their parents stay together and to work through it. But sometimes that's not an option, and the breaking the news of the divorce can be extremely devastating.

Indifference in your divorce: how it can help you during the process

10162632_S.jpgIf you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse have decided to divorce, you are likely more than anything but indifferent towards the divorce process, and are likely anything but indifferent towards your spouse. Even the mere thought of your spouse creates a troublesome amount of emotions that may include: sadness, anger, frustration, guilt, and possibly longing. These feelings towards your spouse are completely understandable. But, it may benefit you to try to be indifferent towards your spouse during the divorce process.

Don't count on Alimony in Missouri

Thumbnail image for 30807000_S.jpgDuring some divorce cases, the question of alimony may come up. Alimony, or better known as the maintenance in Missouri, is being awarded to more men, considering some women are now out-earning their husbands. Women are no different from men when it comes to their dislike of paying maintenance for their former spouse.

It's your choice on how you want to divorce

9253009_S.jpgDivorce is comparable to an all you can eat cafeteria. You can enter the line, and choose a small salad, a single entrée, and a small side or two. You can even skip dessert. Or, you can begin heaping your tray with mounds of food until it is difficult to tell if you still have a plate underneath it all.
