Men, beware of these unhealthy divorce issues

40346537_s.jpgMuch of the attention surrounding divorce focuses on women and mothers. However, men and fathers face just as many unhealthy issues as women do, and some of them can affect their health and overall wellbeing. While it is important for all parties in a divorce to care for themselves, men often ignore the problems associated with divorce.

What does legal separation mean in Saint Louis County, Missouri?

104712395_s.jpgLike most states, Missouri divorce law allows couples to pursue a legal separation instead of terminating a marriage outright. Considered an alternative to divorce, the legal term for separation in the state is separate maintenance action. In many cases, couples may choose to pursue this alternative in the hopes of repairing any damage their relationship has suffered.

Understanding a Missouri collaborative divorce

84572916_s.jpgWhile there might be a perception that all divorces are contentious with the parties squabbling or outright fighting over every aspect of the case, there are some situations where there is relative stability and the couple can negotiate and agree on many issues. This can be useful to expedite the process and keep it civil or even friendly. A collaborative divorce seeks common ground so the case can be settled with as little rancor as possible. The sides will discuss the facts of the case and find areas where they can agree. A key to a collaborative divorce is to have legal advice.

What is an uncontested divorce and how does one work?

82083493_s.jpgUnderstanding how an uncontested divorce is different from a divorce that is being contested is helpful for divorcing couples to understand. Divorcing couples should ensure they have all of their questions answered about the divorce process and how an uncontested divorce works when compared to a contested divorce.

Known as divorce month, January sees an influx in divorce filings

33445807_s.jpgMany things are on the minds of parents during the holidays. For many, it is to ensure that their children are able to spend quality time with their children, celebrating it with as much joy as possible. The holidays can be a challenging time for parents whose relationship has hit a breaking point; however, even when an impending end is near, many parents will hold off on filing for divorce until after the holidays.

The different names for spousal support and how it works

57098523_s.jpgThere are several different names that may be used to refer to the support one former spouse may pay to the other following a divorce. Terms such as spousal support, spousal maintenance and alimony all may be used to refer to generally the same thing which can be a major concern for divorcing spouses to understand.

How to address the topic of divorce with your children

119153881_S.jpgMarriage can have its obstacles and even an ending. Divorce is rarely an easy endeavor. After all, the parties involved have to entirely untangle their physical, emotional, and financial lives. This requires engaging in property division, discussing alimony and figuring out a child custody and visitation arrangement that furthers the best interests of any children involved.

What is the collaborative divorce process?

114074844_S.jpgIt can be challenging to go through the ending of a marriage. Those individuals who are going through a divorce may feel uneasy airing their grievances in court. This is understandable given the fact that very personal details of each party's life may be exposed in open court so that a judge, who knows nothing about the family other than what is presented to him or her in court, can make important divorce decisions that may reshape both individuals' lives. Those who are deterred by this process may want to consider other options that are available to them.

Coping with the emotions of divorce

20142140_M.jpgEnding a relationship is anything but easy. Many people who seek divorce find the process to be amongst the most difficult they will ever face in life. After all, marriage dissolution involves the untangling of lives that were once tightly interwoven. It not only reshapes an individual's day-to-day life, but it can also impact his or her financial standing as well as his or her relationship with his or her children.
