Missouri is a no-fault divorce state. This means that a divorce can take place because the marriage is broken with no likelihood that it can be preserved or fixed. It is not necessary to prove that one spouse is to blame for causing the breakdown of the marriage due to adultery, abuse, or other bad acts. Proof of these faults may help in the matters of child custody and property division, but they’re not necessary for a divorce.

There are numerous issues that are addressed during divorce proceedings. They can include but are not limited to the following:

  • property division
  • child support
  • child custody
  • division of any monetary assets
  • visitation
  • alimony or spousal payments

The state of Missouri tries to divide the assets obtained during the marriage equally. However, that can be easier said than done. The Lawyers at Byrnes Family Law can help you reach negotiations regarding your martial property.


Obviously, the issues that come up during a divorce are emotional issues. An experienced divorce lawyer can make the process easier, and help you focus on the best outcome for your family.
