Martin Kuny has served families in Jackson County, Clay, and Cass Counties for over 26 years. He provides legal services across a wide spectrum of areas, including:

Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. Mr. Kuny helps you establish fair and equitable spousal support so you can continue to live as comfortably as you did before your marriage ended.

If your spouse is seeking support, Mr. Kuny will use the most current legal arguments and case law to prevent a support order or to limit its amount or duration.

Child custody and visitation

For every parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. Martin Kuny advocates for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a safe and healthy home environment.

Child support

Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. Attorney Kuny helps ensure your child receives the financial support required for a secure and healthy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement

Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in financial circumstances, Mr. Kuny can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify child support payments accordingly.


Throughout your divorce, Mr. Kuny stands by you. He is by your side through mediation or litigation, depending on which is likely to obtain the best possible results for you — including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings

When Missouri authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a compassionate advocate who understands the bureaucratic red tape. Martin Kuny is skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Missouri to protect your parental rights.


Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. Mr. Kuny can help you obtain the most favorable family law settlement using mediation techniques he acquired in his training to become a court-appointed mediator and has honed through his years of practice.

Prenuptial agreements

When you got married you may not have foreseen the potential problems that can eventually lead to divorce. Attorney Kuny expects the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that can protect your interests in case of divorce in the future.
