As one faces a looming divorce, the question of “how did I get here” is often asked. The future is unknown and so much is at stake. This isn’t the time to “just see what happens” or expect that all will conclude smoothly and fairly. The many factors that are involved in a divorce make it one of the most stressful experiences that an individual can face. Don’t try to get through this alone. Reach out to a skilled and responsive St. Joseph Divorce Lawyer at Taylor, Siemens & Elliott, P.C. Our attorneys understand the vulnerable and nerve-racking position you may find yourself in and can provide the type of support and answers that can put your fears at ease.

We’ve represented hundreds of families who are facing a divorce and need answers and support.

Our legal team has seen it all and we bring that understanding to every one of our cases.

Spousal Maintenance in Missouri Divorce

Spousal maintenance is Missouri’s word for alimony and is defined as monetary support paid by a spouse to a former spouse, ordered by a judge. This amount can be modifiable or non-modifiable and can be set for a certain number of months or years. There are numerous factors the court considers when determining maintenance. As a result, it’s imperative to have an attorney working on your behalf, to make sure your needs are met during a maintenance determination. The legal professionals at Taylor, Siemens & Elliott, P.C. use their knowledge and experience to garner a strategic and profitable maintenance judgment for their clients.

The division of a divorcing couple’s property is decided by the court, taking into account several factors, or its decided by agreement of the parties, making the division of property complicated. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to see that our client’s interests are protected during this process.

Minimizing the effects of divorce on children is one of our top priorities. We will work vigorously to preserve the relationship that our clients have built with their children. We seek to obtain the custody agreement that is in the best interests of our client and their children.

Protecting Your Interests in an Uncontested Divorce

If the divorce is uncontested, meaning both parties agree, it’s still necessary to obtain an attorney’s direction. Letting a professional guide the process is very wise when making decisions that will undoubtedly and profoundly affect your life, present and future. A family law attorney can shed light on factors that the client may not have thought of before.

In most cases, however, a divorce is contested – meaning that the parties don’t agree as to how to resolve each matter. A St. Joseph Divorce Lawyer at Taylor, Siemens & Elliott, P.C. is on your team and will work diligently to see that the outcome of your divorce is agreeable and advantageous to you.

From the onset of a divorce, several official documents must be filed within the court system. Some of the documents that will be filed in a divorce are statements of assets and liabilities, judgments of dissolution of marriage, and drafts of proposed parenting plans. Our attorneys and paralegals have experience with all the pertinent documents in divorce cases. We work to handle these technical matters for our clients, so they can spend time healing and settle into their new lives.
