Modifications to Prior Judgments
Life inevitably changes over time. Modifications to prior judgments can happen when circumstances have changed for the parents of a child, and the custody or parenting time should be altered.

Paternity actions establish legal fatherhood of a child born to unwed parties. The paternity action can be brought by either parent of the child. Our paternity lawyers are well equipped to help advise clients throughout the legal process of fatherhood issues.
Orders of Protection
When you feel a child is unsafe from a spouse, relative, or guardian, it may be best to seek an order of protection. When an order of protection is in place, it carries criminal penalties if the offending party violates the order. Our family law attorneys at Siegel & Irwin, LLC have success in gaining these orders of protection in Missouri to help clients who feel their children are at risk.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are vital to formally specifying how assets are distributed upon the dissolution of a marriage. Prenups and postnuptial agreements can protect both individuals and their property, while also minimizing future potential litigation. Our Missouri and Kansas family law attorneys can assist with planning and establishing an equitable prenuptial or postnuptial agreement for your marriage.

FAQ for Family Law in Missouri
I have been served with a summons. What now?
If you have been served by a sheriff’s deputy or private process server, it is important that you contact an attorney right away. There are important deadlines that must be met to ensure that your rights are protected, and the clock starts ticking once you have been served.
If my case is contested does that mean that there will be a trial?
Simply because a case is designated “contested” does not automatically mean that there will be a trial. A trial is generally a last resort when settlement negotiation or mediation is unsuccessful. While many contested cases do reach a successful settlement, sometimes a trial becomes necessary to obtain a successful resolution.
