Divorced dads and the holidays

With it being smack in the middle of the holiday season, it's important to recognize the fact that divorce around the holidays can be particularly hard on fathers, especially if this is the first year the kids are with an ex-wife.

Judge says no procreation for father who owes child support

A father who owes $50,000 in child support and $40,000 in interest was recently ordered to no longer procreate until he can prove that he can provide financial assistance for his children.
