Fathers' rights may take backseat to immigration issues

20947903_S.jpgWe have discussed many iterations on our blog regarding how fathers might be denied access to their children. Most of these instances, of course, involve divorce and the custody battles that ensue. There are other instances, however, where fathers' rights are seen as secondary to other concerns -- for example, illegal immigration.

Receiving alimony not so novel any longer for single fathers

19041210_S.jpgWe have written frequently on our St. Louis fathers' rights divorce blog about how dads often end up on the short end of the stick when it comes to fair treatment in a divorce. While not all divorce cases are created equal, there is some evidence that the tide may be turning when it comes to more equitable application of spousal support.

9670593_S.jpgTwo parents going through a divorce can be one of the most difficult things that they ever do, but it can be just as difficult for children to understand. However, by showing children that divorce isn't necessarily a bad thing, parents in St. Louis can help their children learn valuable lessons.

Child returned to mother after grandfather's claim rejected

13588019_S.jpgA child was returned to her mother after another state's Supreme Court rejected claims for custody by the child's grandfather.

Working the holidays into your child custody arrangement

2043765_s.jpgThe holidays can be a difficult time of year for Missouri families who are going through child custody disputes and for those parents who share custody of their children. No one wants to be away from their children during the holidays, and most divorced parents do not want to continue celebrating traditions together as a family after the split.

Thumbnail image for 17087002_S.jpgChild custody disputes are difficult for everyone who is involved. They are not easy for parents in Missouri, who may become forced to rely on judges to determine what is best for their families. Prolonged custody battles can also wear on children, as they rest at the center of the controversies.

Do you need a prenuptial agreement?

10822311_S.jpgIf you have a prenuptial agreement or are thinking about signing one, you are not alone. Prenups are currently enjoying a surge in popularity. A recent survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found that 63 percent of divorce attorneys have witnessed an increase in requests for the premarital contracts.

Is it wise to opt for a DIY divorce in Missouri?

18788507_S.jpgMany Missouri couples who are ending their marriages would like to do so amicably. An amicable divorce, also known as an uncontested divorce, is one in which both spouses negotiate the terms of the split with the mutual goal of fairness. In uncontested divorces, spouses are able to avoid the stress, unpredictability and expenses associated with litigated divorces.
