Divorce can be one of the most difficult and stressful experiences of a person’s life.  Not only can divorce cause financial strain, it can also cause emotional strain on all parties.

In a dissolution action, a party is asking the court to dissolve his or her marriage for the reason that the marriage is irretrievable broken with no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.  Missouri is a “modified” no-fault state, meaning a party does not have to prove fault (e.g., infidelity, abuse, etc.) in order for a dissolution judgment to be entered, however, fault or “misconduct” can be considered by Missouri courts when making determinations concerning division of property, maintenance and child custody.

During divorce proceedings, Missouri courts make determinations concerning the division of property and debt, child custody and support, spousal support, and attorney’s fees.  It is important to select an attorney who is highly knowledgeable of all aspects of the dissolution process, and who can protect your interest during one of the most difficult periods of your life.
