All people who get married generally have one thing in common -- they expect to spend the rest of their life with the person they tie the knot with at the end of the aisle. However, life happens and people change, possibly meaning a couple is no longer compatible. Those who decide that a divorce is in their best interest have many decisions to make, including child custody arrangements if there are children involved. Fortunately, there is help available with visitation issues for those seeking a divorce in Missouri.
In Missouri, family courts typically prefer a joint custody arrangement. Generally, the child will reside primarily with one parent. A parenting plan will help address a parent's concerns about how often they will see the child as well as how the holidays will be spent and drop-off and pick-up procedures.
