In equitable property division states, hindsight may be 50/50 p2

3802649_S.jpgWe are talking about Harold Hamm, a billionaire in the U.S. gas and oil business, and the issues he and his wife have run up against in their divorce. The couple separated in 2012 after more than two decades of marriage, and it was an eventful two decades for Hamm's business interests. He owns 66 percent of Continental Resources, a company that has profited nicely from the Bakken Shale and that has netted Hamm about $13 billion since its initial public offering in 2007.

Some realities that newly single dads will likely need to face

21827991_S.jpgIf you are a newly single dad, you may be feeling anxiety about how to parent successfully on your own. If you have recently gone through a divorce or separation, you are likely trying to cultivate your own approach to parenting while navigating a different approach taken by your child's other parent.

When child support and college tuition merge

20010236_S.jpgWhen minors turn 18-years-old, they become legal adults. As a result, society tends to expect them to fend for themselves financially and socially unless their parents choose to help them out in some way. However, courts seem to be increasingly embracing the idea of ordering non-custodial parents to pay college tuition support as an extension of either divorce settlements or general child support obligations.

Tackling your child's tech usage if you have shared custody

17417402_S.jpgMany modern American parents are currently grappling with a frustrating task. These individuals are struggling to manage their children's usage of technology in a world that increasingly makes such technology accessible and inviting during all hours of the day and night. It is difficult enough to manage your child's potential infatuation with technology if you and your co-parent are on the same page. However, it can be downright aggravating to navigate this issue if you share child custody with your co-parent and you each take a different approach to technology usage.

Apps you and your co-parent should consider using

20993983_S.jpgYou and your co-parent likely parted ways for a number of complex reasons. One of these reasons may have been that you do not communicate effectively with each other. While communication-relation challenges can be frustrating within a romantic relationship, they can also be unquestionably aggravating when they arise within a co-parenting relationship.

Shared custody laws and the rise of single fathers empower dads

18786395_S.jpgWe have discussed before the shift toward shared custody that several states, and many courts, are beginning to implement. In an area that has historically favored mothers over fathers, this change is certainly a step in the right direction as far as fathers' rights are concerned. Interestingly, however, a recently article in the Atlantic explains how this change may be empowering fathers even more than most people realize.

After big financial hit, music manager gets child support cut

18065926_S.jpgWe've talked before on our St. Louis fathers' rights blog about how parents whose financial picture changes might seek child support modifications. Many of these requests are not reported on in the press, but when a high-profile case comes to light, it's a good opportunity to see how these alterations actually come to pass.

Make sure your business is looked out for in a divorce

9370435_S.jpgWhen St. Louis-area residents elect to divorce, there are many factors to think about -- lots of them financial in nature. Many of them are regarding issues directly connected with the family: dividing personal assets, possibly selling the family home, and setting up child support arrangements. However, family concerns are not the only considerations that need to be made when couples are going through a divorce.
