Division of Property and Debt
It is common for a divorcing couple to come to an understanding about how property and debts should be divided. Each state has different laws regarding how property and assets are to be divided. Missouri is an "equitable distribution" state, which means that property and assets are divided by what is fair. Since equitable doesn't mean equal, it is easy to see how important it is to have an experienced attorney.
Sometimes a mediator is used to help facilitate this process. There are, however, times when an agreement can't be reached, and a judge is left to determine how assets are to be divided. In this instance it is imperative that you have an attorney you can count on to look out for your best interests.
