Update: Missouri father wins six year custody battle

More than a year ago we posted on one Missouri father's ongoing battle to get custody of his son. The claim was that his girlfriend had been suffering from postpartum depression when she signed away parental rights of the couple's 3-month-old baby without first consulting the father. Since he did not sign the birth certificate at the time of his son's birth, he was left with no legal rights to stop the adoption process.

Lack of support for job-related stress can lead to divorce

It should come as no surprise, but marriages where spouses do not have emotional support for each other are more likely to end in divorce. And, with more spouses now both having careers and working outside of the home, not having support at home to combat daily office stressors can quickly deteriorate a marriage.

More children born to unwed parents

Over the past five decades there has been a steady increase in the number of children born to unwed parents. In fact, nowadays, more than half of the children who are born to women under the age of 30 are also born to parents who are not married. And while there are several theories on this cultural shift, the fact remains that without proper precautions, unmarried men can end up losing their rights as parents more easily than those who are married.

Father who is out of work jailed for not paying child support

A 31-year-old father was recently released from jail for failing to pay child support. He is supposedly $50,000 behind on payments, and will be sentenced in early April for failure to support or maintain a child.

Missouri father's eight year long custody battle continues on

For the past eight years a Missouri father has been fighting for custody of his now 10-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son. As of now, even though a doctor has recommended that the children live with their father due to what looks like emotional neglect, it appears that conflicts of interest have been real barriers between the father and the courts.

Is your ex-wife using the kids against you in divorce?

A father who is going through a contentious child custody battle recently shared his story. Right now, while trying to obtain custodial rights, his ex-wife is also trying to up his child support payments. He claims that she's even gone as far as to file a false child abuse report in order to try and get the upper hand in court.

Act deliberately to help children cope with divorce

Divorce can happen. It can happen to couples who have been married for more than 20 years, and it can happen to those who said "I do" just a few years ago. And while in most cases spouses know that separating is the best thing for them to do, in relationships where there are children, many parents tend to worry about how the children will be affected by the divorce.

Father hopeful that child custody battle will turn in his favor

For many men, the day they found out they were going to be a dad, was one of the happiest days of their life. Sadly, this joy can quickly turn to sorrow when the mother of the child purposely takes steps to take the biological father out of the picture.
