When you are going through a divorce, you are making many decisions lasting financial and emotional consequences.  Decisions about:

  • Child Custody- Child custody includes both physical custody, who takes care of a child on a day-to-day basis, and legal custody, the right to make education, medical, and religious decisions for a child. 

  • Child Support- a payment by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent to help offset the costs of raising the child.  This can include amounts for child care, medical insurance and expenses, and the costs of the child’s extracuricular activities and school.

  • Maintenance– periodic payments from one party to another to maintain the parties’ standard of living prior to the marriage.  Whether any party is entitled to maintenance depends on the length of the marriage, the relative income of the parties, and various other factors.

  • Property Division- during a divorce, Missouri law requires the Court divide all property acquired during the marriage equitably between the parties.  This is different than an equal division.  The Court can consider the circumstances of the parties and the reasons for the end of the marriage including marital infidelity in splitting the marital property.
