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.

Father hopeful that child custody battle will turn in his favor

For many men, the day they found out they were going to be a dad, was one of the happiest days of their life. Sadly, this joy can quickly turn to sorrow when the mother of the child purposely takes steps to take the biological father out of the picture.

Child custody relocation requests rise with economic pressures

For some spouses divorce and child custody agreements can be hard to reach. However, with the current economic climate and more parents financially struggling, many are finding the situations to be even more trying as more are filing relocation requests.

Grandparents are one step closer to visitation with grandchild

In February this blog covered a case about a child visitation court battle between a set of grandparents and the mother of a 3-year-old girl. At that time the paternal grandparents of the child had been awarded every other weekend visits with the girl, however, the mother had broken the court-ordered agreement and moved with the child out of state.

Study: Distance has impact on fathers' contact with children

A study that looked at the involvement a noncustodial father has with his children pointed to one of the biggest factors coming down to how far away he is living from his kids. This distance can be due to the father choosing to live farther or closer, but also if the mother decides to relocate the children.

Grandparents fight for right to see their deceased son's child

A 4th District Appellate Court has upheld a trial judge's decision to allow a set of grandparents to be able to have their grandchild stay with them every other weekend. However, the battle is not over for these grandparents as now they have to wait and see what happens with the four contempt of court petitions they filed since the mother and child have now moved out-of-state.

What if my ex wants to move with my kids?

If you get divorced in Missouri and you have children, or were part of a prior paternity case where a custody judgment was entered, the mother is to provide notice to you before she can move with your children. This is required by Missouri law according to 452.377 RSMo. This statute gives a procedure by which you must give notice that you are moving and what the notice must contain. This applies whether she is moving nearby within the same county or wants to relocate outside the State of Missouri. Temporary moves do not count. It is necessary for any permanent change of address, which essentially means a change of address for more than ninety days.
