Missouri parents, like others, typically want what is best for their children. In situations where divorce is imminent, child support issues can lead to disagreements over how to interpret what is best. Parents are advised to seek guidance regarding how to address such matters in court.
As in all states, the court has the final say where issues regarding children in divorce are concerned. That is not to say, however, that the court is uninterested in what parents have to say. To the contrary, most judges carefully take into account the needs, goals and requests of both parents, along with any state guidelines that pertain to an issue before rendering their decisions.
Children often go through extended adjustment periods when faced with the fact that their parents no longer reside under the same roof. It is only natural that a concerned parent wants to ensure that children’s basic needs for food, shelter and clothing are met. In situations where a custodial parent may have already given up a career to stay home full-time to raise the children, life after divorce may include tremendous financial strain.
