Uncontested divorce is sometimes called “kitchen table” or simple because both sides come to the proceedings in agreement on important issues. Not every couple can agree on this, but those who can appreciate the time, money, and peace of mind they save themselves. Not only that, but experience shows that children do better when parents act amicably than following a process that was bitterly contested.

What Is a No-Fault Divorce?
Missouri is classed as a “modified no-fault” state. This means you don’t have to prove your spouse misbehaved (infidelity, abusiveness, criminal acts) to be granted the dissolution of marriage. You only have to claim that the relationship is over, with no likelihood of reconciliation. Demonstrate this truth to the court and your wish will be granted.
Misconduct can still play a role, such as child custody, parenting time and child support.
A skilled lawyer like Stephen Bardol can lead you through these areas, according to your wishes.
