Ways to settle a child support dispute

19563023_S.jpgRaising a child is an enormous financial endeavor. Food costs alone can skyrocket as children age, not to mention other massive expenses like childcare and education. Far too often custodial parents try to bear the full brunt of this financial responsibility, but in many cases, it just isn't feasible. Financially providing for a child is a shared duty to be carried by both parents, which is why custodial parents need to do everything they can to secure the child support they need to adequately provide for their kids.

What are the different types of property during divorce?

21860558_S.jpgThere are generally two primary categories of property during divorce and property will be defined as one or the other to help decide what is divided and what will not be subject to the division process. Sometimes considered a third category or property, or simply a separate designation, is commingled property which it is also helpful for divorcing couples going through the property division process to understand.

Be careful when divorcing; it may affect your credit score

58229841_S.jpgIf you're considering divorce, then you've got a lot on your plate. You need to consider how your child custody arrangements will be laid out, how marital assets will be divided and whether alimony will be paid. Navigating the tangled web of divorce can be overwhelming and much more complicated than initially thought. Since many Midwesterners going through marriage dissolution find themselves down in the weeds trying to figure out matters like whether visitation drop offs will occur at the mall or a parents house and the value of a long treasured family heirloom, it can become easy to lose focus of the big picture.

Establishing paternity for child support purposes

12054218_S (1).jpgRaising a child is an expensive endeavor and one that a parent shouldn't face alone. Unfortunately, though, far too often noncustodial parents try to dodge their financial obligation to their child, especially when that child is born out of wedlock. In these instances, men oftentimes deny that they are the father of a woman's child. When they are successful in doing so, they avoid child custody and child support issues.

Property division basics in Missouri

38072942_S.jpgHow property is divided during divorce is an important concern for couples in Missouri. Understanding some property division basics can be helpful to ensure that divorcing spouses can protect their interests and reach a property division settlement agreement that both parties can live with.

Property division critical in gray divorces

98229462_S.jpgDivorce can take an emotional and financial toll on people of all ages. Short-term and long-term marriages can both have tremendous ramifications when they end in divorce, which is why Midwesterners need to do everything they can to protect themselves and their well-being when marriage dissolution is on the horizon. While this often means surrounding one's self with supportive friends and family, it also means knowing how to utilize divorce laws to one's advantage.

How to deal with unfair divorce tactics

43837501_S.jpgEnding a marriage can be a challenging experience on many different levels. The emotions that are tied up in the marriage dissolution process can be more than enough to make it difficult, but the logistics of untangling two lives can be overwhelming. Making matters worse, a contentious divorce can see the parties taking steps to try to thwart a fair resolution. This is why Midwesterners need to ensure they are protecting themselves as fully as possible throughout the divorce process, which includes knowing how to identify some of these brutal tactics and how to adequately address them.
