    "The price was so good, I had to do my divorce with you. I didn't want to pay a lawyer $800 dollars to do an uncontested divorce. We already knew what we wanted on how to divide up the house. I'm grateful I found you when I did. Going through the stress of a divorce is hard enough without having financial stress as well. Thank you so much."

Missouri Grounds for Divorce
Irretrievable breakdown of the marriage

 

NOTE: Regardless of the reason of the breakdown of the marriage or the reason for filing for divorce in Missouri, the Divorce Do It Yourself Service will do divorces on an "Agreed" basis or a “Default” basis.

  • An Agreed Divorce , as described in the Missouri divorce guidelines and MO divorce laws, is when the other spouses agrees to the terms of the divorce such as Missouri property distribution, Missouri child support, or Missouri child custody. Most of our customers (75%) prefer the Agreed Divorce method when the spouses sign the divorce papers and are agreed to the divorce.

  • A Default Divorce , from the Missouri divorce guidelines and MO divorce laws, is a divorce where your spouse doesn’t sign the Missouri Divorce paperwork or Missouri divorce forms. They simply doesn’t do anything at all… with the divorce. They simply default on their side of the case. And YOU who filed FIRST get whatever you ask for in the originally filed divorce forms. NICE

Missouri Missing Spouse
If your unsure of where your spouse is currently located, you may still get divorced in Missouri. A missing spouse divorce involves running an ad in your local penny newspaper. We help you through the process. Have no fear.

Wife’s Last Name Change
The wife may, if she chooses, receive her Maiden Name back during the divorce. Our Divorce Service includes this name change in our service for FREE.

Child Custody Laws in Missouri
Non Legalese Definitions: (source: divorce process in Missouri and MO divorce laws)

  • Visitation is the Plan both spouses have on WHERE the children will live and WHEN the children will see each parent
  • Legal Custody is different than Visitation. It is the ability to make decisions in the lives of the children. Such as, which church they will go to and where the children will attend school.
  • Physical Custody Is the choice of where the children will live and which parent they live with.

Missouri Child Custody in a shared arrangement, is the usual preferred method of our Missouri divorce clients. If a sole-custody arrangement is what you would like, then there is usually a very good reason for it. Usually the financial status of a parent is not usually considered for allocating any parental rights and responsibilities. Shared Custody or Sole Child Custody is to be awarded according to the “best interests of the child.” That is the gold standard.

Your Missouri Child Support Laws
If the 2 spouses are unable to agree to a specific $amount of child support, there are Missouri Child Support Guidelines that determine the amount for you. The guideline amount is supposed to arrive at a support amount that is in the child's best interest. However, most divorcing couples agree to a $number on their own, that will work just fine. Also NOTE, in most situations, -0- Child Support is OK if both spouses are working and can manage. This is also true for a Missouri Legal Separation

Missouri Divorce Laws for Property Distribution
In an "Agreed Divorce" or "Default Divorce" the marital property is to be divided so that spouses agree on how to divide it. The main focus here is to agree on the division of the property…so that it doesn’t create a big fight that one party will want to go to a Missouri divorce lawyer to make the divorce into a “Contested Divorce.” Then YOU will have to incur the fees of a lawyer too. Which can be huge.

  • Debts Most couples going thru a divorce, set out who will pay what debts as part of their Marital Settlement Agreement (MSA), and close all of their joint bank accounts.
  • Missouri Alimony Laws (Missouri Spousal Support Laws) In an Uncontested “Agreed or Default” Divorce, spousal support may be awarded to either spouse for their maintenance and support. Both parties must agree to it however…since most spouses are working, alimony (if awarded at all), is usually for a shorter period of time, and smaller amount than in the past. In the Missouri divorce laws for alimony, it is possible for alimony to be paid in one lump sum payment OR the use of a payment plan has become popular in the last 10 years as well. Alimony is not required for a person to get divorced in Missouri.

Local Court Filing Fees
Your Local Court filing fees are not included in the price of our service as usual. To file your divorce in Missouri, the court fees you must be paid when you file the divorce at your local county courthouse. It is best to call your local county court and ask what the fees are in your County to file for divorce papers. Regardless of whether you are going through a divorce service, using a Missouri divorce kit, using a divorce attorney (or divorce lawyer), or doing a nearly free divorce in Missouri, you will always be paying the local court fees.
