Fathers' Rights Archives

Challenging the 'divorced dad' stereotypes

10095764_S.jpgWhat's the difference between a "single father" and a "divorced dad?" This sounds like the setup to a joke, but it's not. Many of us would use those terms interchangeably, but there is a difference, according to some. And that distinction may reflect a larger problem with the way that society views the custody rights of men.

Dad seeks $120 million for being deprived of fathers' rights

15696030_S.jpgJust last week, we wrote on our St. Louis fathers' rights blog about a father who had spent an arduous process of several years and many court battles in an attempt to get back his daughter, whom he said had been improperly adopted when his parental rights were terminated. Now, another man in a similar situation is attempting to assert his fathers' rights in a case involving his daughter, who was adopted without his consent six years ago. The man is now suing several people, including the attorneys involved in the case originally, for $120 million in damages.

5158141_S.jpgFathers everywhere may have a tough time connecting with their children -- for any number of reasons.

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.

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.
