What Our Clients Say

An Overview of Family Law

Family law is primarily concerned with the various legal issues that can come up between family members. A St. Louis family law attorney can represent your interests in court proceedings or negotiations, as well as draft important documents such as divorce settlements, marital agreements, and custody agreements. One of our experienced advocates can help you prepare for your future after the resolution of your family law matter.

Divorce: Courts in St. Louis use the term “dissolution of marriage” and “divorce” interchangeably. An uncontested marriage dissolution involves two spouses who agree on matters such as child custody, alimony, and division of property. If one spouse disputes any of these issues, the couple’s marriage dissolution may have to go to court and possibly even trial.

Maintenance: During divorce proceedings, a professional ally from our firm can help you obtain spousal maintenance – also referred to as alimony. The party requesting maintenance must show that they are in need of financial assistance from their former spouse following the breakup of their marriage and that they are unable to provide for their own needs.

Child Custody & Support: Child custody in St. Louis involves where your child will live on a regular basis as well as how parents will share decision-making authority regarding your child’s welfare. Local courts set forth both physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody is determined by the schedule of custody and who the child resides with primarily. Legal custody involves how decisions are made regarding your child. Child support, on the other hand, is calculated based on several important factors, including the custody arrangement, the incomes of both parents, and any special needs the child may have.
