Fathers' Rights Archives

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.

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.

Fathers' rights may take backseat to immigration issues

20947903_S.jpgWe have discussed many iterations on our blog regarding how fathers might be denied access to their children. Most of these instances, of course, involve divorce and the custody battles that ensue. There are other instances, however, where fathers' rights are seen as secondary to other concerns -- for example, illegal immigration.

Father carries on with 12-year child custody battle

Thumbnail image for 17087002_S.jpgChild custody disputes are difficult for everyone who is involved. They are not easy for parents in Missouri, who may become forced to rely on judges to determine what is best for their families. Prolonged custody battles can also wear on children, as they rest at the center of the controversies.

Visitation at stake after father refuses to buy fast food for son

20832908_s.jpgChild custody and visitation cases rarely make headlines in St. Louis unless they involve the rich and famous. One case, however, that involves a family on the East Coast is making national news this week. The case is grabbing the interest of many people, as a father was branded to be unfit after he did something that many parents do.

Man fights for fathers' rights in American workplaces

19877100_s.jpgFathers' rights have come a long way in Missouri in recent decades. Fathers and mothers stand on equal ground when it comes to pursuing child custody, as Missouri law no longer automatically favors women. However, many fathers still face an uphill battle when it comes to family matters.

Do you have a plan for establishing parental rights in Missouri?

9909483_s.jpgWhile strides have been made in recent years to protect fathers' rights, there is still a tendency in some courts to favor mothers over fathers in matters of child custody. But the child's best interests should always be the top priority, and the reality is that children are happiest and develop most healthily when both parents are actively and positively in the family picture.

Myth-busting: What Missouri men should know about paternity laws

11217945_s.jpgCourts in different states are getting better about making child support and child custody laws more uniform, but there are still differences from state to state. Any parent in Missouri looking to establish child custody rights or establish or modify a support order should meet with a Missouri attorney to explore the available options. Every case is different, and that means bringing your case to court should involve an in-depth look at your particular situation.

Bill pushing for sperm donor parental rights put on hold

10058886_s.jpgA bill dealing with paternity rights was recently put on hold after not clearing a legislative panel on Tuesday. This bill was put forward after a state senator heard about the case involving "The Lost Boys" actor Jason Patric and his child custody dispute with an ex-girlfriend.
