Is Missouri a No-Fault Divorce State?

Missouri is a no-fault divorce state, meaning you don’t have to prove “grounds” like cruelty, adultery, or anything other than irreconcilable differences in your petition to dissolve your marriage. However, you may also file for divorce on the grounds of abandonment, intolerable behavior, criminal activity, or another type of reason, so be sure to specify this in your petition, because this could be important if your soon-to-be ex denies that the marriage is, in fact, irreparably broken. Our divorce attorneys will do everything we can to help you get the outcome you want from the very start.

Do I Really Need a Lawyer for My Divorce?

While there are no Missouri laws that require hiring a divorce attorney, we recommend hiring an attorney, anyway, because many people find there are options they would not have otherwise known about had they flown solo. There’s a common misconception that hiring a divorce attorney only results in higher costs and extended waiting times, but the truth is that at attorney wants to guide you down the most efficient path possible. It’s particularly important to retain the services of a divorce attorney if you have substantial assets or children in your marriage, as this makes matters more complex and sensitive.

Many are leery of the extra expense of hiring a divorce attorney and view it as another aggravation is what is already an expensive, frustrating time. While this may be true short-term, handling your divorce by yourself could be even more expensive and aggravating further down the road if you made legal mistakes and need to backtrack to fix them because you wanted to do a DIY-divorce. Save yourself the stress and frustration by calling Cavanagh & Associates and learn why retaining a skilled attorney can make all the difference in putting your marriage behind you and making sure all the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed, legally speaking.
