Key family law considerations for older couples in dispute

Family legal issues are not limited to younger people. In Missouri and across the country, a greater number of older couples are choosing to part ways even if they have been married for an extended period. Spouses in longtime marriages will often have issues in dispute that are not as prominent with younger couples. It is more likely that there will be significant assets if it is a couple that was together for a long time and was able to accrue a vast portfolio. Property division and retirement accounts will come into focus.

Understanding the value of a family law professional on your side

The process of a divorce is seldom easy. There are plenty of considerations and decisions to be made including property division and possibly spousal support or alimony. And if there are children involved, the discussions and decision-making process can be especially difficult and trying for all parties involved.

Dividing ownership of pets in a divorce

When a married couple divorces, the parties must go through the process of dividing the marital property. With some financial assets, such as bank accounts, the parties can often reach a fair result by simply dividing things in half. Some other types of financial assets, such as ownership stake in a business, can be a lot more difficult to divide. And, of course, division becomes really tough when it comes to unique items or things of sentimental value. Typically, the parties have to negotiate over these pieces of property, and the debate can be emotional. Some of the hardest of these cases involve pets.

A Missouri spouse facing divorce needs sound advice

You and your spouse may have reached a mutual agreement to split up. Or you may have been living apart from your spouse for some time and just had divorce papers served on you.
