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.

Father gets daughter back, several years after apparent adoption

5158141_S.jpgFathers everywhere may have a tough time connecting with their children -- for any number of reasons. When a couple separates, fathers can lose track of their children and sometimes have their parental rights terminated -- even if they are insistent about establishing their paternity rights.

Missouri fathers: Make sure child support orders are enforced

Thumbnail image for 10609239_s (1).jpgIt used to be that mothers were favored in the courtroom when it came to who should receive child custody in a divorce. Typically, the mother would end up receiving primary custody and the father would have visitation rights that equated to every other weekend -- and in some cases -- an additional few nights during the week. The father was also normally the one paying child support to the mother.

Men looking for alimony in divorce

11406113_s.jpgIt used to be that men almost always automatically earned more money than their wives. This left wives in the situation of fighting for some sort of a fair divorce settlement. However, as the times have changed and women have started to earn more, many now have a higher net worth than their husbands. This means it could be the men looking for alimony from their ex-wives in the case of divorce.

When mothers try to limit contact with children during divorce

Mothers Trying to Limit Contact.jpgIn divorce it is normal to have hurt feelings, maybe even feel like life would be easier if an ex-spouse was simply never around again. However, when children are involved -- and an ex is a good parent -- trying to stop him or her from being a part of their child's life is selfish and hurts the child.

Playing sports strengthens father-daughter bond

7190205_s.jpgStudies have shown how important it is for daughters to have close relationships with their fathers. In fact, one study published in the journal Development and Psychology found that those girls who grow up with a lower quality of fatherhood in their lives tend to take more dangerous risks during their adolescent years. This is yet just one of the reasons that fathers need to make sure to have an active role in their children's lives, even after a divorce.

Visitation schedules can create more balance between parents

13460126_s (1).jpgIt used to be that when two parents got divorced, one parent was granted primary custody and the other was given visitation time. For many parents this was quite frustrating, especially when the courts used to favor mothers. This meant that fathers often only got to see their children every other weekend and some holidays.
