In either a divorce or separation agreement, many factors can come into play. We are prepared to assist you with all divorce-related matters such as division of marital property and debt, spousal maintenance, child support, custody, visitation, and more.
Division of Marital Property and Debt
After a divorce, perhaps the most common concern for many people is the division of marital property and debt, particularly what will happen to the family home.
Our background in real estate law, family law and many other areas provide the breadth of experience necessary to navigate complex cases, from families with large assets to those with a more moderate income. We are able to provide solutions that will always protect your best interests.
When dividing marital assets, we are able to handle concerns including:
- Division and sale of the family home and other real estate interests
- Division of pensions, retirement plans, 401(k)s and IRAS
- Division of business or partnership interests
Spousal maintenance, also known as alimony or spousal support, is one of the more difficult issues in a divorce. We assist clients whose divorces include the possibility of spousal maintenance. For example, in a long marriage where one spouse earns wages and the other stays home to raise children, it may be necessary to allow the stay-at-home parent a chance to build up their earning capacity. Our lawyers will fight for the rights of our clients on either side of a spousal maintenance case.
Child Support, Custody and Visitation
In Missouri, child support is calculated using a formula. It is possible to get a variation from the child support formula if applying the formula would be unjust or unreasonable for any reason.
Child custody and visitation plans are called parenting plans in the state of Missouri. Parenting plans establish a child’s place of residence and primary guardianship and determine the time that each parent will have with the child. We can help you work out the details of the parenting plan in a way that is healthy and positive for everyone involved.
