When emotions interfere with divorce issues

46316650_S.jpgIf you are contemplating divorce, already in the middle of the process, or have already parted ways with your former spouse, you may have various responsibilities and concerns. You could be worried about how marital property will be split between you and your spouse. Or, perhaps you are losing sleep thinking about how custody will be awarded. During these times, an array of emotions can arise, from anger to depression and high levels of anxiety. It is important to prevent these emotions from having a negative impact on your divorce case.

Untangling child custody disputes

34372258_S.jpgHome is a place to unwind, bond with family and friends and enjoy peace of mind -- these aspects are especially ideal for children who are affected by divorce. Millions across the nation struggle with making two homes what one used to be. Yet a 2016 Missouri law has caused many parents to develop concern in regards to how much time, exactly, they are able to spend with their own children. Much confusion has surrounded this 50/50 parenting law, and some fathers in particular have decided to speak out.

Divorce, bankruptcy and your mortgage

30773695_S.jpgResidents in Missouri who are facing the difficult and emotional decision of having to end their marriage may also have other decisions to wrestle with. If financial problems are part of the marital issues, people may also be struggling with how to reconcile these problems as well. If the financial challenges are severe enough and bankruptcy is a viable options, consideration should be given as to what type of bankruptcy might be best and when it would be most appropriate to file for that bankruptcy relative to when a divorce filing is made.

Child support determination guidelines in Missouri

42892638_S (1).jpgOne of the greatest challenges that divorcing parents in Jackson County may face is being able to set aside the issues that contributed to the end of their marriages in order to work together in raising their kids. Many may believe that residual feelings of animosity harbored by former spouses may prompt them to try and punish their exes through their divorce proceedings. One way may be to ask for inordinate amounts of child support. Those obliged to pay such support may feel as though their former spouses are trying to harm them financially under the guise of trying to support the kids. The fact that the U.S. Census Bureau reports that $32.9 billion was due in child support as recently as 2013 may seem to support this assumption.
