Located two miles west of the city (St. Louis), and ten miles from downtown, many families choose to settle down in Webster Groves. This St. Louis suburb is known for the plentiful green trees, historical homes, and moderate cost of living, explaining why 6,145 families have chosen to reside there (according to the latest census). According to the Webster-Kirkwood Times, Webster Groves, Missouri was even number nine on the 2008 list of the “Ten Best Towns for Families” in America in Family Circle Magazine.
Despite the many idyllic qualities of Webster Groves, nothing stops what 40-50 percent of families in the United States experience– divorce.
The word “divorce” holds a negative connotation for many, but in reality, this legal split of a married couple is sometimes what actually holds families together. Fights, disagreements, and quarrels lead many couples to find relief in the finality of legal separation or divorce. But while the stresses of an unhappy marriage dissipate, the angst of the divorce proceedings replaces them. As soon as you answer yes to the question of whether or not you and your spouse will divorce, a thousand of other questions rush in.
Can my spouse and I settle our divorce with the same lawyer? If we don’t have a prenuptial agreement, what assets am I entitled to? How can we make the divorce process amicable so that my children are not affected? If my spouse and I share custody, does either of us have to pay child support? If I’m on my spouse’s health insurance, do I need to change that? How do we change our estate plan to reflect our divorce? After divorce, can I move from Webster Groves if I have shared custody with my spouse?
Don’t be ashamed. Questions are natural as you approach this legal process. The most important question to answer, though, is who should I seek help from?
