When a marriage is clearly no longer working, it is often easier for couples with no children to file for divorce. However, having children does not mean that a couple will not file for dissolution, but it can further complicate their situation. Divorcing with children means making serious and difficult decisions that will impact the children immediately and for years to come. Thus, it is important to understand how divorce could affect your children and what options you might have to remedy this situation.

When couples in Missouri divorce, they often seek to move forward with the process so they can start their single post-divorce life. However, the procedure to get from filing for divorce to a divorce decree can be rather lengthy and complex. This is especially true for couples going through a high asset divorce. In some cases, spouses will go to great lengths to protect property from the divorce, even going as far as hiding it from their ex. This could present some major problems, especially if these assets are uncovered during dissolution.
Divorce is difficult no matter your financial situation; however, for wealthy couples, dissolution can bring additional issues and disputes.

The complexities of dissolution are obvious to any couple in Missouri. Whether they are of average income or are a wealthy couple, the divorce process means taking the time to consider major factors of the relationship and the intended post-divorce life. While some couples understand the constraints and limitations of the process, others believe in the process delivering the divorce settlement they desire.
