Fighting for What Our Clients Deserve: To Move On Peacefully After Divorce

Divorce Lawyer in St. Louis

Compassionate Representation at a Difficult Time

The decision to divorce is never easy and the process can be complicated, especially if there are minor children or marital property disputes. At Cavanagh & Associates, our primary goal is to guide our clients through the process and advocate for their best interests. Our St. Louis divorce attorney has more than 50 years of legal experience and fights to get the best decision for every client.

The Divorce Process in Missouri

The first step in a divorce is for one party to file a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, stating that the marriage is irretrievably broken. At least one party must be a resident of Missouri for at least 90 days. Many issues must be decided during a divorce, depending on the situation and whether the couple has children or not. We can advise you and look out for your best interests in the division of property and assets, spousal support, child support, and custody of minor children.

We provide legal services that include:

  • Pre-divorce consultation
  • Mediation/collaborative divorce
  • Dissolution of marriage
  • Marital misconduct
  • Division of property
  • Spousal and child support
  • Child custody
  • Post-judgment actions

Once the required documentation has been filed, a 30-day mandatory waiting period is required before a court hearing. During the hearing, the spouses present their arguments and the court will enter orders concerning child custody, child support, spousal support, and division of marital property. Whether you intend to file a Petition for Dissolution or need to respond to a petition filed by your spouse, our St. Louis divorce lawyer can help.
