Family Law
Like most people, we have neither planned nor prepared for divorce.  A divorce is an awful situation for all involved, especially if children are involved.  It is an emotional experience, but having an experienced attorney beside you through the process lightens the emotional stress. Attorney Steve Dyer will advocate on your behalf throughout the process.

PROCESS

In Missouri, one of the divorcing parties is first required to be a state resident for 90 days and the court must make a finding that there is no likelihood the marriage can be preserved

If the marriage is not irretrievably broken and there is likelihood it can be saved, a legal separation may be in order if you are not planning to live with your spouse

Attorney Steve Dyer is very concerned with children of a divorce or separation.  Children play a huge part of a divorce or separation.  Let Attorney Steve Dyer assist you in developing a new parenting relationship with your spouse so both you and spouse can focus on the children’s welfare.  Steve can give you admonition and guidance in this structure.  While proceeding with a divorce or separation Steve will be with you to give you examples on how to re-structure.

Attorney Steve Dyer will stand by you through the proceeds including custody, visitation, and parenting time.  Attorney Dyer will work for the best outcome for everyone concerned.

After the divorce, if there is any need for changes, attorney Dyer will handle any modifications that could occur after the divorce and make any transitions as easy as possible.

CHILD SUPPORT

The amount of child support is calculated pursuant to Missouri Rule 88 and Form 14.  The Form 14 is a formula that figures child support based on the incomes of the parties and other factors.  The Form 14 calculation includes the following:

Monthly gross income—this means income before taxes and deductions, and does not take into consideration parents expenses such as mortgage payments/rent/car payments/other debt.  The monthly gross generally includes income from all sources.

• Other child support payments being made
• Court ordered maintenance being paid or received
• Support obligation for other children in parents primary physical custody
• Child care (daycare) costs if work related
• Health Insurance costs
• Uninsured extraordinary medical costs
• Extraordinary non-medical costs

Unless the parents have approximately equal custody time with children and make roughly the same amount of money, one parent will pay child support.  The parent who does not have the children most of the time (also called non-custodial parent) pays support.

Steve also represents clients who are in arrears in child support payments and who have warrants for non-support.  Steve will represent his client in an attempt to lower payments and obtain a withdraw of the warrant.
