Fathers' Rights Archives

Every parent has a right to parent their children

9911359_S.jpgIn the United States, the custody situation has improved. Slowly, family law courts in Missouri are growing accustomed to the prospect of father's sharing equal rights with mothers after a divorce. While many judges still may have a bias towards mothers when it comes to child custody awards, and fathers have to aggressively assert their rights, the tide is beginning to shift.

Fatherhood: Good for fathers and their children

8860695_S.jpgIt takes two people to create a child. It shouldn't be as shocking as it is to say, therefore, that it often takes two people (at least) to raise a child. Too often in family law cases, one parent is left out of the equation of raising a child. Fathers deserve every chance to play a role in their children's lives. 

Know your Paternity rights

29872098_S.jpgNot too long ago, questions of paternity were something like gambling. You could take a blood test, but was hardly conclusive and if a mother denied the paternity of a man and the blood test did not match, his effort to be named as the father could be frustrated. Today, with the advent of DNA testing, the scientific accuracy of the test is now virtually 100 percent, and a mother's protestations now have less force.

Leave for dads can help promote father's rights

18461978_S.jpgFather's rights are a complex issue. During a divorce, many judges in the St. Louis area probably still feel that raising children is "women's work." This can lead to the presumption that when it comes to custody matters, a mother will receive the custody of the children. For fathers, this can mean they must fight to obtain shared custody.

Girls missing during custody dispute located

37407145_S.jpgWhen a divorce occurs here in Missouri, a core problem is often parents who can no longer get along with each other. When they have children, this can be a significant problem. In most divorce settlements, the child custody portion will require varying degrees of interaction and cooperation between the parents.

A helpful tip for divorcing parents

13642621_S.jpgIf you and your child's other parent are either currently navigating a divorce or have recently finalized one, you are likely feeling overwhelmed by the process of becoming a single parent. Even if you have a significant support network in your life, it is never easy to transition from parenting with a partner to parenting alone. The challenges inherent in this process may be exacerbated if you and your child's other parent are not getting along at the moment.

Assisted reproductive technology & disputes over parental rights

4092207_S.jpgThere's no doubt that medical science has allowed humans to do things once thought impossible. Even if we look only at the field of assisted reproductive technology, recent advancements have made it possible for couples and individuals to have children despite significant biological obstacles.

Fathers' rights topic: Presumption of shared child custody

5556730_S.jpgFor decades, family courts in Missouri and around the country started child custody proceedings with the assumption that mothers were the best caretakers for their children. The fathers' rights movement was created largely to combat this bias. Men who want to remain active in the lives of their children after divorce are not asking for special treatment, just equal treatment.
