Setup A Free Consultation
Divorce is only made more difficult if any sort of misconduct has happened. If you’re leaving a partner who was abusive or cheated on you, this only adds to the emotional anxiety and stress of a divorce, especially if children are involved who may have witnessed the abuse. These wounds can leave lasting scars. Even though Missouri is a “no-fault” divorce state, meaning no one has to prove grounds for a divorce beyond stating that a marriage is broken or unfixable, misconduct such as abuse or affairs is not to be treated lightly. The pain caused by such actions can last a lifetime.
Cheating, domestic abuse, and other forms of misconduct are surprisingly common. You’re not alone, and you need a lawyer who is skilled and experienced in obtaining settlements in these cases. Feel free to reach out and schedule a free consultation. We will find a time and place that is convenient for you and I know you won’t be disappointed.
In Missouri, courts are able to consider each spouse’s conduct during the marriage in order to determine how to divide assets and property. There is no formula as there is for child support, but the facts of the case are still important. Generally speaking, if any sort of misconduct, including abuse or an affair, had a significant impact on the marriage, then that might affect a divorce settlement.
