Common-law marriage becomes a family law issue in Kansas

Some of our readers may not know it, but Kansas is one of only eight states that still recognizes common-law marriages. A common-law marriage occurs when a couple agrees to a marriage, but they do not have a marriage license or a formal marriage ceremony. However, according to a recent article, this family law institution may be abolished soon.

Getting a child custody agreement modification in Kansas

Anyone in Kansas who has to go through the process of hammering out a child custody agreement with a soon-to-be ex-spouse knows that this can be the most emotionally challenging part of a divorce. After all, in the vast majority of cases, the parents involved want what is best for their children, and many parents will rightfully think that they are the ones who would provide the most stable family life in a post-divorce atmosphere. But, being subject to a child custody order is part of the divorce process that the parents must accept.
