Dad reunited with son after ex-wife's international abduction

6201680_S.jpg
A nightmare scenario for nearly any parent is one involving the abduction of their child. The "stranger danger" narrative has permeated American culture for decades, but it should be noted that children are not always abducted by a stranger. In fact, they may be abducted by one of their parents in response to an unfavorable child custody order.

Equal rights for fathers gaining more traction around the country

9416258_S.jpgThe movement to get fathers on a level playing field when it comes to child custody is gaining acceptance in more and more places around the country -- although there is still work to be done. However, the presumption that joint custody is the best option for divorcing parents is being recognized in several states, and legislation is pending in other states.

Missouri fathers may consider co-parenting

In Missouri, father's rights with respect to their children can become vulnerable during the divorce process. However, while it used to be that the court system favored mothers, many courts are now considering other alternatives to better involve fathers, including physical and legal custody, along with joint custody that revolves around co-parenting.

Parents with joint custody need to create a plan for Halloween

It's that time of year again: pumpkins are being carved and the preparations for this year's Halloween costume are almost all set to go. However, for parents who have joint child custody, now is also a good time to communicate and work out some kind of a schedule when it comes to trick-or-treating and school Halloween festivities.

Grandparents who are left out after a divorce: Part one

It's a sad reality, but sometimes divorce can be just as hard on grandparents in Missouri as it is on the rest of the family. As a recent article in The Huffington Post reported, it is quite common for grandparents to feel pushed away or alienated from their grandchildren after the children's parents go through a divorce.

Missouri father denies accusations, claims he has shared custody

A Missouri father recently showed up on a local news station to explain that he recently did not abduct his baby girl and did not assault his ex-girlfriend. Rather, he explained that he has shared custody with the girl's mother and was legally spending time with his daughter.

Primary custody being awarded to fathers more accepted

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in the past ten years there has been a 27.3 percent increase in the number of households led by single parent fathers. And while the number of single dads is still less than the number of single mothers, the fact that there has at least been an increase shows that there seems to be a greater acceptance of the idea of a father being awarded primary or joint custody.
