Technology can be positive and negative in divorce

A University of Missouri study recently examined the role technology is playing in separation and divorce -- especially in cases where the couple have children together. From there it was found that while technology can be a tool used for better communication and parenting, it can also be used maliciously by parents.

DNA paternity testing on the rise

With more and more children being born to unmarried parents there has been an increase in the demand for paternity tests. In fact, this demand has been so high that in one city there is even a mobile clinic that offers DNA paternity testing on the spot. With a prescription from a doctor and roughly $299 -- depending on the service -- a person can stop up at the 28-foot recreational vehicle and submit a sample. About three to five days later the results are in.

Tips for grandparents during a divorce

When adult children go through a divorce, grandparents often find themselves in a sticky situation. While they want to be there for their adult children, it's important that they do not say or do anything that could end up backfiring on their relationship with their own children and grandchildren.

Differences on whether or not to have children can lead to divorce

There are many deal breakers when it comes to marriage. This is why many family law attorneys, who have seen many divorces emerge from one spouse wanting a child and the other not wanting a child, say it's important to have these discussions before walking down the aisle. This way everyone is on the same page and there are no surprises.

Child support and visitation are two separate issues

With today's current economy and many lay-offs it is not unheard of for a father to be behind on his child support payments due to financial reasons. However, when a dad is behind on these payments -- while for the custodial parent this can surely be frustrating -- this should still never be used as a reason behind limiting visitation time between a father and his child.

Stand your ground; keep your cool during divorce

In many divorce cases men incorrectly assume they will not come out on top and will lost their home, child custody and be forced to pay child support and alimony. But this is simply not true and men have just as much of a right to get what they want out of a divorce settlement as women do.

Facebook served search warrant in unpaid child support case

Authorities will pull out all of the stops when it comes to tracking down those parents who are behind on child support payments. A perfect example of this was recently highlighted when a search warrant was served on Facebook to try and learn more about a father's whereabouts. He reportedly owes more than $100,000 in child support.

Valuating assets in a St. Louis divorce isn't just about the money

When a couple chooses to end their marriage in St. Louis, they are not simply declaring the end of a relationship. They are also dividing up their property, whether it is a home, a car, a business or even a collection. While it is very true that equal division of the property often comes down to how much the asset is worth, there is so much more to division than the market value -- especially in the eyes of each spouse.

Jamal Lewis denies failure to pay child support accusation

Failing to pay child support is something authorities take very seriously. Whether a person is a celebrity or regular Missouri resident, failing to pay can result in jail time for those who are behind on payments.

Dad's visitation schedule includes day of basketball title game

When creating a child custody agreement and visitation schedule, it is quite common for parents to put in requests for certain holidays. For example, maybe the kids will be with dad for Christmas, but then with mom for Easter. Or maybe spending at least half of Chanukah with the children is a must for a father. But what happens if one parent is not particularly a religious person and therefore doesn't necessarily feel as much of an attachment to specific holidays? Can this be balanced with the other parent's religious holiday requests?
