New Year brings paternity questions for many

Establishing who the father is of a child is important not only for that child, but also for matters concerns child custody, visitation, child support and father's rights. And, it turns out that going into the New Year, many men plan on wanting to know once and for all if they are indeed the father of a child -- or even children -- through a paternity test.

Consider visitation: One father never has children for holidays

When you combine divorce, visitation and the holidays, the end result can be a somewhat frustrating mess for parents who are divorced. And while we typically focus on issues related to the biological parents fighting over who gets the kids for which holidays, often times stepparents also want to be able to have their stepchildren -- the whole family -- together for the holidays.

Seemingly false domestic violence accusations play role in custody

A father who had unfounded domestic violence allegations held against him will finally be reunited with his 4-year-old daughter. This decision also comes after the man's 2-year-old son went missing back in November under the care of his estranged wife.

Unusual paternity case arises from child support lawsuit

In a rather unusual child support case, a 36-year-old father is suing a fertility clinic claiming that he did not give consent for his now ex-girlfriend to use his sperm for the purpose of in vitro fertilization. And while there are certainly some questions that the clinic and mother will have to answer, the entire lawsuit does highlight the role that paternity plays in a child support case.

Paternity tests on the rise

Since teen pop star Justin Bieber was alleged to be the father of a young woman's baby, paternity has been a hot topic. However, paternity disputes are not just for celebrities. There were approximately 500,000 paternity tests performed in the U.S. last year. This week, the largest DNA testing company in the U.S. reported that they have experienced an increase in paternity inquiries recently.

Primary custody being awarded to fathers more accepted

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in the past ten years there has been a 27.3 percent increase in the number of households led by single parent fathers. And while the number of single dads is still less than the number of single mothers, the fact that there has at least been an increase shows that there seems to be a greater acceptance of the idea of a father being awarded primary or joint custody.
