This is the original "Divorce in Missouri" that has received state-wide praise from judges, lawyers, clients and the Missouri Bar Magazine. Now completely updated with all the latest information. Don't be fooled by a book that copied the "Divorce in Missouri" title, but doesn't come close to delivering the quality of detailed, user friendly information that has made the original "Divorce in Missouri" so popular and respected by everyone.

This easy to read and understand book explains the divorce laws of the Show-Me State and suggests strategies that can result in a successful settlement. It also includes information on how divorce can affect non-US citizen permanent residents.

This is not a book that generally covers divorce for all 50 states. It gives clear and detailed information only about the things a Missourian considering a divorce needs to know. Every page is focused just on the laws, processes and likely judgments by a Missouri court if a settlement cannot be reached.

The authors, Alan Freed and Alisse Camazine have represented thousands of Missourians in divorce actions. They are listed in the Best Lawyers in America and Missouri-Kansas Super Lawyers, along with many more professional accolades.
