During this time, Missourians are overwhelmed by negative feelings, including a belief in the loss of control. But, all hope is not lost. Although the decisions to be made in the process of a divorce often need to be mutual decisions, or if that is not possible, decisions made by lawyers, mediators or judges, you still have a say.

A valid prenuptial agreement can help the parties to greatly reduce the amount of time and negotiation required for property division.

It may be difficult to keep your emotions in check during these difficult times, and it is not uncommon for heated arguments to break out during the divorce process.
