An Ethical & Knowledgeable Family Lawyer
We Want the Best Outcome for Your Family
When you are facing a matter involving your family, you want to hire a family lawyer who is not only highly experienced and capable, but also ethical. After all, family law is a delicate matter, making it imperative to reach the best outcome for all parties involved, while protecting your rights. DeMoor Law Firm, LLC, meets all of these criteria and offers a full suite of family legal counsel, including:
- Child support
- Child relocation
- Child adoption
Separation & Divorce
First, we must make an important distinction on a state-by-state basis regarding separation. Some states do not allow legal separation, even through a family lawyer. Missouri is one of the states that does, which allows DeMoor Law Firm, LLC, to offer legal separation services to our clients. While there are some similarities, separation and divorce differ in several key ways.
Unlike in a divorce, the marriage is still intact from a legal standpoint if you file for a separation. Issues like debt payments, division of property, spousal support and child support are the same in a legal separation as they are in a divorce.
A divorce is the legal and formal dissolution of a marriage. It requires obtaining a judicial decree declaring that the marriage ended. Going through a divorce involves matters like dividing property, as well as paying spousal support, child support or both.
Child Support & Relocation
The courts or the Missouri Family Support Division of Child Support Enforcement may order child support. The order specifies the frequency and dollar amount of the child support judgment. The payment of child support is an emotionally charged issue, regardless of whether you are the payee or payer. Allowing a qualified family lawyer like DeMoor Law Firm to handle your case is imperative.
Child relocation law regulates what happens when one parent wants to move to a new place that is a significant distance from the other parent. These laws determine what constitutes a relocation and sets rules for it.
Adopting a child is a beautiful and heartwarming gesture to make. That said, adoption can be a complex process from a legal standpoint. Because it involves the future of a child, adoption cases require great care. Hiring a family lawyer with advanced expertise in adoption law is critical for ensuring the process goes smoothly and yields the most beneficial outcome for both you and the adopted child.
