Could your child be adopted without your consent?

969262_S.jpgIn Missouri, it could happen. It has happened. A man is dealing with just that circumstance after he found out that his daughter, who is only three-years-old, was adopted by the girl's maternal great-grandparents. In most cases, a father would have a right to object to such a transaction, but because he lacked legal documentation of his paternity, it was possible for the mother to set up the adoption without his knowledge or consent.

How do judges make the decisions the do?

15388037_S.jpgCourt proceedings are often confusing to participants. Family law cases involve very specific factual situations that often bring with them very strong feelings. For those involved, it can be difficult to separate the emotional from the legal and they may wind up being frustrated or disappointed in the outcome.

It may seem amusing until the cops get called in

13996189_S.jpgIt probably happens thousands of time a day across the nation. A parent takes a child's cellphone away due to some transgression. While cellphones have become embedded in the culture and society, a child's possession of a cellphone is still a matter of parental discretion.

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.
