The challenges of being a single father

28863180_S.jpgMissouri dads may be capable of raising their children as well as mothers are. In some cases, mothers still get full custody while asking the father to pay child support without fully analyzing the situation. This may be despite the fact that women are just as likely to have issues with substance abuse or neglect their children. However, society may still feel as if a father is not capable of being a single parent.

When parents interfere with visitation rights

5947213_S.jpgMissouri parents who have gone through a divorce and who have custody and parenting time orders in place are required to follow them. If issues arise and one parent tries to interfere with the time allotted to the other, that parent may be subject to both civil and criminal penalties for doing so.

How paternity is established in Missouri

53144879_S.jpgIn the state of Missouri, paternity is generally established in hospitals shortly after children are born. Unmarried parents do this by voluntarily declaring paternity in documents known as Affidavits Acknowledging Paternity. When these forms have been properly completed and signed, paternity is established and the father's name is placed on the child's birth certificate. The mother's name is placed on the birth certificate even if no Affidavit Acknowledging Paternity is completed.

Fighting for your rights as a Missouri father

15039344_S.jpgWhen parents go their separate ways, it is safe to say they still want what is best for their children. While many children in the state of Missouri are raised in the home of the primary caregiver, it does not mean the other parent has no rights. Unfortunately, many fathers believe they are not treated fairly in child custody decisions. Sometimes this is not the case, but all too often it is entirely true. The good news is that courts in Missouri and elsewhere are coming to understand how important it is for a child to have two active parents in their lives.

Netflix makes big announcement affecting parental, paternal leave

42356456_S.jpgMothers and fathers who share custody can struggle enormously when it comes to raising children separately but together. There are challenges that come no matter who you are, how much time you spend with your child or what type of relationship you have with the other parent.

Your parenting plan can ensure a father's shared role

20087881_S.jpgWith a divorce where the couple has children, some of the more contentious issues of the proceeding may involve the custody of the children. For many years, the custody matters have followed the current of American society, with women taking the role of caregiver to the children, and often being awarded custody.
