Missouri Family Law Attorneys

A legal issue in your family can be a very delicate matter. It needs to be resolved competently, as important things are at stake: your finances, your relationships, and the future of your loved ones, especially your children. You want to ensure that the people you love are provided the care and security they deserve, but at the same time, you must protect your own rights and fair claims.

On top of these, you want the resolution to be as peaceful as possible, with minimal disruptions in your life and the life of your loved ones.

There are many family law attorneys in Missouri, but the lawyer you select must provide a balance of practicality and sensitivity. Talk to us at Shea Kohl Law to see how we can help you with this brand of service.

Family Law Issues We Handle

Whether your family matter involves your spouse or partner, your child, your step-child, or even your ward, we at Shea Kohl Law are prepared to handle it for you. As a full-service family law firm in Missouri, we are experienced in these family issues and more:

  • If you wish to adopt a child, we can thoroughly deal with the legalities – both international and domestic – so that you can focus on your new family adjustments.
  • Child custody and visitation. We can help you fight for your parental rights to ensure that your children grow up in an appropriate and supportive home.
  • Child support. Your children deserve all the support they can get. Let us help you receive the fair amount of financial support needed to raise them well.
  • Child support enforcement. Has the other parent refused or failed to pay court-ordered child support? There are ways to ensure that appropriate payments are made.
  • Child support modification. If there are changes in circumstances that affect your child, our lawyers can assist you through the legal system to have your child support modified by the court.
  • Let us help make your divorce as calm, amicable, and fair as possible. We can get you the most equitable results regarding matters such as asset distribution, alimony, and child custody or support.
  • In a family conflict, we can act as an unbiased mediator so you don’t have to go to court. We enable you to arrive at decisions together for less cost, less hassle, and more amicable resolutions.
