Divorce and Separation in Missouri

Missouri is a "modified no-fault" state — in order to obtain a divorce, the parties may plead irreconcilable differences. However, infidelity and other conduct like domestic violence are relevant to property division and spousal support. Missouri is an "equitable distribution" state, considering several factors when distributing property, including nonmarital versus marital property and debt and the financial needs of both spouses. The property or debt will not necessarily be divided equally.

We can represent you in contested and uncontested divorces. Legal separation is also an option in Missouri. It provides almost the same results as divorce, but does not dissolve the marriage itself.

St. Peters, Missouri, Child Support and Custody Lawyer

Our attorneys also represent clients in other family law matters, including:

  • Child support and custody
  • Support modification: When life circumstances change, such as the loss of a job or birth of another child, it may be necessary to modify orders for spousal or child support.
  • Domestic partnerships
  • Domestic violence
  • Guardianships and adoption
  • Paternity
  • Contempt: If a judge orders a spouse to do something pursuant to the divorce and they're not doing it, it is necessary to bring another action to force the party to comply.

We will help you to answer the important and sometimes confusing and complicated questions that arise in these areas.
