How to parent with a hostile ex-spouse

It's always a nice idea to think that you and your ex-wife will go through a divorce and one day be able to work together to co-parent your children. And while for many this may be true, the truth is that in some situations your ex-spouse will continue to be hostile well after a divorce and make it difficult for you to deal with their antics and raise your children together.

Alternative court for unmarried parents

When an unmarried new father is hailed into court, the rulings usually involve financial determinations, not the role he will play in the child's life. One judge in Minnesota found that too often, even men who contributed financially faded from their children's lives. The same judge found that additional efforts need to be made to ensure that unmarried fathers uphold parenting obligations.

Why is Facebook being seen in more divorce cases?

Recently the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, tied the knot and married his longtime girlfriend. However, while his status just changed to "married," it turns out that many couples who later go on to change their status to "divorcde" or "single," cite Facebook as playing a role in why their marriage did not go as planned.

Financial tips pre-divorce

Sometimes when two people are married, they each do not realize all of the assets and liabilities that they carry separately and jointly. However, if you are thinking about asking your wife for a divorce, it becomes even more crucial to know where you both stand financially in order to know what a fair divorce settlement would even look like. This is why it's advisable to start gathering documents and other information, even before actually asking for a divorce.

More men receiving alimony, child support

Many men going through a divorce may not realize it, but if they financially relied on their spouse, or if there were income disparities, they may be able to receive spousal support. Additionally, if there are children involved, there is no reason to assume that the mother will automatically receive custody and child support, as both of these can -- and are -- awarded to fathers in Missouri and throughout the country.

Divorce considerations for parents raising a special needs child

When two parents divorce, there are a number of agreements that need to be reached. But, when the parents of a special needs child go through a divorce, even more complications can arise. However, with the right planning when going through the divorce, the future can become a lot less frustrating both for the parents and the child.

Electronic snooping increasingly present in divorce cases

Thanks to readily available and easily concealable spy gadgets, more and more divorce cases are starting to involve the use of some kind of electronic spying devices in an attempt to gather evidence. However, even though some spouses may believe that spying to gather evidence in a divorce or child custody case is the way to go, attorneys are cautioning about crossing the line due to emotions.

Father awarded visitation rights in ongoing custody battle

Back in February we posted on the heartbreaking story of a father who had only seen his daughter once in four years. This was all due to the fact that without his permission, the mother of the child let her brother and sister-in-law adopted the little girl. However, in what is being considered a win for fathers around the country, the biological dad was recently awarded visitation rights.
