Family Access Motions in Missouri

Please note: Not all Missouri counties allow a Family Access Motion to be filed if the original custody order was entered in a paternity/custody case. MO. Rev. Stat. § 452.400 only allows a Family Access Motion to be filed if a parent is violating a divorce order or legal separation order; therefore, some counties will deny a Family Access Motion if a parent is violating a custody order entered when the parents have never been married. You are advised to check with the court or an attorney in the county you wish to file your Family Access Motion before paying a filing fee. This video is prepared by Legal Aid of Western Missouri; it discusses Family Access Motions. In most cases, you may file a Family Access Motion if your rights to custody or visitation under a divorce decree or other custody order have been denied or interfered with by a parent without good cause. It describes how to complete the necessary form with the circuit court in your county and what will likely happen after you file.
