Determining child custody is one of the most difficult aspects for Missouri couples going through a divorce. Being prepared for a hearing can have a real impact on the outcome, especially when it comes to question asked by the judge. The Spruce offers insight on what you can expect, from questions about finances to how you communicate with your ex-spouse.

How do I deal with a difficult spouse in a high-asset divorce?

One thing that divorce is often not in high-asset couplings in the St. Charles area is amicable. More money, assets and property often mean more problems. When emotions are involved, the stakes are higher, and the situation becomes highly complex. It is not uncommon for separating couples to let their feelings about their failed relationships take center stage and use them to delay and cause problems during their divorces. 

How should the wealthy approach divorce?

No one is immune to the threat of divorce. Divorce may come as a complete surprise to one partner and leave many decisions clouded with heavy negative emotions and feelings of uncertainty. It can be difficult to navigate your way out of a marriage where lives and households have blended together in legal union.

The many benefits of paternity testing

In a time that is likely already laden with questions, uncertainty surrounding a child's biological parent can be overwhelming. Sometimes, the mere request of taking a DNA test can become a challenge in itself. However, this information can be crucial not only in a parent's life, but in the child's, as well. Below are some of the many reasons why paternity testing in Missouri can make all the difference.

The emotional toll of ending a marriage with a high net worth

For those with a high net worth, ending a marriage can be challenging for diverse reasons. Often, people preparing for these divorces have more at stake and they may be especially worried about the financial consequences of divorce. However, there are times when moving on becomes necessary and people should not feel trapped due to worries about finances. The divorce process can have an emotional toll on people in this position in other ways as well. For example, they may be affected from an emotional point of view and, as a result, encounter difficulties involving work. If you are getting ready to end your marriage, you should keep these factors in mind as you move ahead.
