Looking ahead to life after a child custody decision

11205267_s.jpgIn our last post we focused on things fathers should know before walking into the courtroom. And while it is certainly important for a dad to know exactly what he wants and to have an attorney who understands those wants, it is also important that a father thinks about what life will look like outside of the courtroom.

Child custody in Missouri: Fathers need to know what to expect

13343911_s.jpgWhen a relationship ends it is hard on everyone, especially when there are children involved. However, by pre-planning a little and having an understanding on what to expect from the beginning, fathers have a better chance of being able to accurately articulate their arguments on why a child custody or visitation schedule should be awarded in a certain way. 

Trend increasing of women paying alimony to ex-husbands

8835345_s.jpgIt used to be that husbands always out-earned their wives. Many times, these husbands went to work while the wives stayed home, raised the children and ran the household. Due to this arrangement, when there was a divorce, it was the man who would be paying his ex-wife alimony. The idea was that this money was due to the fact that the woman had sacrificed her own earning potential to maximize that of her husband's. 

Custody battles: Missouri parents should know what to expect

10643392_s.jpgChild custody battles in Missouri can be a real headache. Especially, when one parent is financially more well-off than the other. While money will not necessarily give them the upper hand in the courtroom, it does mean that with money not being an issue, this parent can continue to appeal rulings and drag the case out in court. 

Missouri parents: Include college costs in divorce settlements

14669163_s.jpgWhile Missouri parents tend to focus on things like child custody and visitation schedules during a divorce, parents also need to be focusing on just how they are going to pay for their children's college education in the future. Ideally, these conversations should be happening in order for the plan to be included in the divorce settlement. Essentially, the settlement will discuss how much each parent is going to be paying for college.

Kris Humphries divorce finally finalized

17623457_s.jpgBack in January we posted about the fact that NBA star Kris Humphries had rejected a $10 million divorce settlement from Kim Kardashian. Rather, he wanted an annulment, claiming Kardashian used him and their marriage as a publicity stunt. This reason would fall under fraud, which is a primary reason for seeking an annulment.

Mother arrested for custodial interference

19025747_s.jpgIssues surrounding child custody are understandably very emotional for parents. In some cases, one parent may not agree with the child custody arrangement being enforced by the courts and wish to take matters into their own hands. However, while this may be tempting it is important to remember the arrangements have been set forth for very specific reasons and going outside of these arrangements could end up resulting in criminal charges. 

It's normal for men to feel a loss after divorce

15263780_s.jpgDivorce is an emotionally trying time for a man. After a divorce, men often feel a huge sense of loss, not only of their wives and families, but also of their sense of self. This in turn can lead to dangerous and destructive behaviors, which can harm them and have a serious impact on how the courts rule on child custody and visitation agreements.
