Any split can lead to a property division dispute or obstacles to finding a fair and equitable settlement. For Missouri couples, there are certain details to consider first before agreeing to or signing a property division agreement. While each couple may be unique, certain aspects of an agreement can be quite common and should be realized ahead of time.
One common complication can be if there are minor children to consider. The needs of those children, particularly housing and transportation, can weigh heavily on who gets the house or a family vehicle. If there is a disabled child or disabled spouse, a property division agreement may have to reflect those individual needs when it comes to the house or certain specially equipped vehicles.
