How can I create a parenting schedule that works?

In Missouri, divorced couples often have a difficult time creating reasonable parenting schedules. It’s crucial that both parents play a vital role in the lives of their kids, even if they have issues between them. To ensure you can develop a reasonable schedule that works well for everyone involved, Very Well Family offers the following tips.

When should I ask for a child support modification?

Once you go to court and finalize your child support order in Missouri, you are not bound by this order forever. You always have the option to return to court for a modification. There are some limitations on requesting changes to your order. The Missouri Bar explains you may only request a modification if there is a substantial change or it has been three years since the original order.

What is a petition for child custody?

There are some situations where a Missouri court may establish child support orders but not establish custody orders. Another common situation is when you have established paternity but custody was never set by the court. If you are in either situation, then you may need to file a petition for child custody, which according to the Missouri Courts, is a petition requesting a hearing for custody of your child.

Navigating court proceedings for fathers who want full custody

In most divorce cases that involve children, the court prefers a parenting plan that includes both parents actively participating in their offspring’s upbringing. Missouri is no different. However, there are times when it is in the best interest of the child for you, as their father, to have sole custody. At Turken & Porzenski, L.L.C. our experienced attorneys work with clients to ensure the best possible outcome for them and their children.
