Shared child custody can mean co-parenting

One of the biggest issues that many couples handle during a divorce is child custody. Usually, both parents want what is best for their children and both want shared child custody. However, sometimes parents have different ideas about what is best. If both parents share custody, they might decide to take a co-parenting approach. This means both parents are active participants in the child's life, even if it is about an event that happened with the other parent.

Group pushing for custody fairness for military parents

For many fathers in Missouri who are in the military, being away from their children is difficult. And with soldiers still being sent to fight in Afghanistan, an extended deployment is possible. This situation is made even harder for divorced military fathers. Several members of Congress and other groups are fighting to make child custody determinations more fair for military members.

Previous marriages increases the odds of divorce

While many Missouri spouses may like to believe that their second marriage is forever, the truth is those who have already been divorced in the past have an even greater chance of getting divorced again. Additionally, there is also a great risk of being hit financially harder the second or third time around.

Study: Social issues lead to divorce among low-income families

Stress and marital fighting caused by money problems and substance abuse are enough of a reason for any Missouri resident to want to get a divorce. Of course, these issues and stressors are ones that could affect anyone. And while it isn't to say all low-income families are arguing over money or dealing with issues related to substance abuse, statistically, these are issues that tend to affect those in the low-income brackets more than those in the high-income brackets.

Disagreements over child custody arrangements can be contentious

Divorce can become quite complicated and contentious when children are involved and both parents disagree on child custody matters. Many times this can lead to each parent making false accusations against the other in order to try and paint themselves in a more positive light.

How to successfully co-parent in Missouri

When it comes to divorced parenting, nowadays more and more Missouri fathers are participating in co-parenting with their ex-wives. And while this is certainly greats news for children and dads alike, fathers and mothers both need to be cognizant of the "co" part of "co-parenting."

Usher talks about fatherhood during his fight for child custody

Fathers play an important role in a child's life. Fatherhood is more than just being a caregiver to make sure that a child has the necessities in life, along with love and support, but is also about being a positive adult male role model. Sadly, sometimes during a bitter divorce or break up, not all mothers are always as cognizant of the importance of a father playing a role in a child's life -- or they have their own agendas -- which means many fathers find themselves in court fighting for custodial rights.
