Children may wish to maintain relationship with ex-stepparents

21503145_S (1).jpgAs in other states, when it comes to Missouri child custody matters, the children's best interests are supposed to be the most important factor. We usually think of this in terms of maintaining relationships with the child's biological or adoptive parents. But what about stepparents?

Why do women initiate divorce more often than men?

12927129_S.jpgThere was a time when married men were generally the breadwinners of the household, while their wives stayed home and handled domestic duties. That is not the case in today's society, as many married women have full-time jobs, and there are perhaps more stay-at-home dads today than ever before.

Do a child's best interests and father's rights go hand in hand?

6998153_S.jpgAs frequent visitors to our blog know, we often like to talk about Missouri law and how it affects residents here in St. Louis County and across Missouri. In a post back in February last year, we talked about the push across the nation for joint custody arrangements, which oftentimes provide a middle ground between fathers' rights advocates and a child's best interests. In the post, we left it up to our readers to decide whether they thought the same way.

Respecting the privacy rights of parents who pay child support

18985415_S.jpgWe have previously written that child support is among the more "loaded" topics in family law. Regardless of whether they pay or receive child support, nearly everyone involved has an opinion. And for the parents on the paying end - often fathers but not always - reminders to pay child support can feel like a moral judgment. No one wants to be thought of as a "deadbeat."

Your divorce doesn't have to be a public event

10305169_S.jpgMost of us don't experience the social inconveniences that celebrities do. You probably don't have to look completely "put together" to grab a cup of coffee in the morning, nor do you worry that going shopping with your kids will turn into an unwanted photo shoot. Most of us don't have these problems because most of us aren't famous.

Letting go of anger in order to make smarter divorce decisions

11682311_S.jpgA couple weeks ago, we discussed the potential fallout from the recent hack of the Ashley Madison website. The site's purpose is summed up in its slogan: "Life is short, have an affair." There are apparently millions of people who took that advice, and the personal data of more than 37 million users was stolen by hackers.
