Sidra Saucedo, a former model who worked for Seven Jeans and Alberta Ferretti has been engaged in a contentious battle with the father of one of her children. Many Missouri readers may already know that the two have been fighting over child custody in court for years now. The father of the 11-year-old child, propriety trader Steven Schonfeld, has apparently been trying to keep Saucedo away from her.
Everywhere one looks, it seems there is always another book or program or expert claiming to know the secrets to maintaining a happy marriage that lasts a lifetime. Those who have gone through divorce in Missouri or elsewhere, however, understand this is not always possible, no matter how good the advice. From couples who have only been married a year or more, to those who have been together for decades, many spouses find themselves in need of family law support when problems remain unresolved for too long.
Not all family law situations involving children have to do with married couples. Nowadays, many battles over custody rights arise between single persons in Missouri or elsewhere who are co-parents of the same child or children. Such is the case for basketball superstar DeAndre Jordan and the mother of his 1-year-old son.
Gone are the days when the court automatically awards custody of a child in divorce to a mother. In fact, a court in Missouri (as all other states) is typically of the opinion that children fare best when given ample amounts of time with both parents. As such, many fathers find themselves battling to protect paternal rights when it comes to the future care and upbringing of their children after divorce.
