Collaborative divorce: easing tensions over child custody

The tension of determining child custody can make the divorce process complicated and difficult for all parties. While this is not possible for every situation, Missouri couples may find that collaborative divorce can be a beneficial way to come to amicable solutions. Collaborative divorce can also be a method by which couples determine child custody agreements and more.

Military personnel are often deployed for months or years at a time, which can make child custody battles complicated.

When individuals are aware of their rights and a couple is willing to work together on a child custody agreement, the process can be faster and smoother.
