It's perfectly normal for in a marriage for there to be one person in charge of the bills. This spouse may be the one in charge of not only making sure things like a mortgage and electric bill are paid on time, but could also be the same person in charge of all of the family's budgeting. But then, what happens in the case of a divorce? What about that spouse who wasn't in charge of finances?
Back in January we posted on the fact that model Heidi Klum and musician Seal were separated and planned on filing for divorce. At the time, everything seemed rather amicable between the two -- but we did wonder if things would start to heat up when it came to child custody and other divorce settlement matters. As it turns out, the tables have indeed turned with news of Klum already in a new relationship with her bodyguard.

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.
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.
One of the biggest issues that many couples handle during a divorce is child custody. Usually, both parents want what is best for their children and both want shared child custody. However, sometimes parents have different ideas about what is best. If both parents share custody, they might decide to take a co-parenting approach. This means both parents are active participants in the child's life, even if it is about an event that happened with the other parent.
