Dad gets in legal trouble over Facebook post about ex-wife

12953432_S.jpgIt can be difficult to hold one's tongue during and after a contentious divorce. Fathers in Missouri know that it can be frustrating not to speak out when things aren't going their way -- especially when there are platforms such as Twitter and Facebook that make expressing one's opinions to the world almost effortless. However, the danger of broadcasting your opinions are that people who are the target of your consternation will take offense -- and make it into an even bigger deal.

Dads raising kids on their own: not always easy, but worth it

18359776_S.jpgDivorced fathers often have to fight tooth and nail to make sure that they play an active part in the lives of their children. Dads may be worried that they will be marginalized in their kids' lives and not be a part of the family they expected to care for in the coming years and decades.

Could life on Mars take precedence over raising family on Earth?

6754149_S.jpgFrom time to time, many frustrated parents might have fantasized about leaving everything behind -- their spouse, kids, pets, the family home, everything -- and bolting out the door for parts unknown, even outer space. While these frustrations are nearly always temporary and cooler heads soon prevail, one parent might take that sentiment to the extreme and literally go to live on another planet.

Mother sentenced after lying about baby's origin

23299088_S.jpgFathers' rights can be a delicate issue. Many women involved in paternity or custodial cases would often prefer that the father of their children be around as little as possible. Fathers who want to remain a part of the lives of their children may have to fight to make sure that their rights and obligations as a parent are upheld.

Dads' forum offers hope, solution for single fathers

1448859_S.jpgMissouri fathers who owe child support to their former partners might find themselves running afoul of the legal system when they are unable to meet their obligations. Often this is through no fault of their own. The loss of a job can make life more difficult for parents to make ends meet for themselves, let alone to keep current with their child support payments.

Contested divorce turning into 3-ring circus

19252185_S.jpgAs many of our readers in St. Louis are no doubt aware, some divorces are easier than others. In some cases, couples agree to split up by mutual agreement, and the distribution of assets is agreed to with nary an objection from either party -- and the process is completed relatively quickly.

Mum's the word: Dads often get short shrift in British divorces

7058816_S.jpgWhen couples who have children separate, the issue of child custody can be dodgy. Many fathers might feel shut out of the process of raising their kids -- and not by accident. One poll taken recently of recently separated women in the United Kingdom, in fact, finds that about a third of separated moms want to decide on their kids' upbringing on their own, with no input from the children's fathers.

Holidays can provide ammunition to file for divorce

24531905_S.jpgNow that the holidays are over, many people in the St. Louis area and all around the country are re-evaluating their marriages. Because extended family obligations are now over for a while, couples -- including those with children -- are weighing their options for divorce. Many divorce attorneys, in fact, say that there is a big uptick in inquiries about beginning divorce proceedings at this time of year.
