Father awarded visitation rights in ongoing custody battle

Back in February we posted on the heartbreaking story of a father who had only seen his daughter once in four years. This was all due to the fact that without his permission, the mother of the child let her brother and sister-in-law adopted the little girl. However, in what is being considered a win for fathers around the country, the biological dad was recently awarded visitation rights.

Bill in Missouri State Senate could threaten some fathers' rights

The result of one father's 6-year custody battle is a bill introduced by one of the members of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys that would allow an adoption of a child without the father's consent. What many people don't know is that Missouri law requires an unmarried father to declare paternity of a child within 15 days of that child's birth. But what about fathers who are not informed of a partners pregnancy or their pending fatherhood in a timely manner?

Paternity action recommended for kids born to unmarried parents

When a child is born to married parents, there is rarely any question over who the biological father of the child is. However, when a child is born out of wedlock, paternity is one of the questions that can arise.

Ortiz's paternity case highlights the importance of DNA testing

It's certainly disturbing to even think about, but the truth remains that there are some women who will attempt to claim that someone is the father of their child in order to receive child support. And while this can happen to anyone -- regardless of fame or not -- a recent paternity test taken by Red Sox baseball player David Ortiz was a prime example of how some people will make false allegations regarding fatherhood.

More children born to unwed parents

Over the past five decades there has been a steady increase in the number of children born to unwed parents. In fact, nowadays, more than half of the children who are born to women under the age of 30 are also born to parents who are not married. And while there are several theories on this cultural shift, the fact remains that without proper precautions, unmarried men can end up losing their rights as parents more easily than those who are married.

Father hopeful that child custody battle will turn in his favor

For many men, the day they found out they were going to be a dad, was one of the happiest days of their life. Sadly, this joy can quickly turn to sorrow when the mother of the child purposely takes steps to take the biological father out of the picture.

Paternity case: Father denied visitation rights

A Court of Appeals recently ruled that a teen around the age of 16 will not learn who his biological father is until he is 18 years old. As of now, the teenager believes that the man who raised him, and is married to his mother, is his biological father. But, the truth is that he was conceived when his mother was having on ongoing affair, and highlights the importance for a father to ask for a paternity test early on.
