It is important to note that Missouri is an "equitable distribution" state, meaning it takes into account several factors when distributing property. This includes the determination of what is marital versus non-marital property and the financial needs of all parties. Marital property is defined as property acquired by either spouse during the course of marriage barring certain exceptions, often related to inheritance. Non-marital property is property acquired prior to marriage, again with certain exceptions. These types of distinctions can get incredibly complex, particularly in high-asset divorce cases. Because family law is one of our core competencies, however, there is no case too complicated.
We are ready to take the experience we have honed in decades of practice to help you and your family reach an ideal outcome. We encourage you to reach out as soon as possible.
