When a family is living together as a single unit in Missouri, it gives all the members of the unit stability, especially the children, who may not be aware of the struggles the parents are going through to keep up a united front. For various reasons, the couple may no longer be able to remain married to one another and decide to get a divorce, opening up a Pandora's box of questions from the children. But often, it is not only the children who have the questions; even the parents are now going into unchartered territory, where not only is everything familiar to them going to change, but they will also be introduced to new legal concepts they do not understand.
At these times, it helps to have someone who is knowledgeable in family law by one's side. Someone who can explain the ins and outs of the divorce process and advocate for one's best interests even when that individual is too emotionally drained to understand what is going on. Lawyers at our firm can provide that guidance, as we draw upon years of experience of representing clients in resolving a range of family law issues, from child custody to asset division.
We take the time out to discuss everyone's personal situation, trying to understand what an individual wants from a divorce, and helping people make informed decisions that will aid them in getting what they want. Whether the issues are contested or not, we stand by our clients to ensure they are getting a solution.
People face difficult decisions during their divorces, but those decisions should be made with a full understanding of the short-term and long-term consequences. For more on how we can provide that, please visit our child custody page.
