New measures may be taken to support importance of paternity

100623406_S.jpgThe state of Missouri realizes that fathers are important. While other places in the country have taken measures to support fathers and matters regarding paternity, most companies in Missouri still do not offer paid paternal leave. This can place an unfair burden on new dads and deprive an infant of critical bonding time. Besides, Mom would probably love an extra set of hands around to help as she recovers from the birth. 

New research indicates that having Dad around can be beneficial. Lower rates of infant death, better results with breastfeeding, and even a decreased risk of postpartum depression for Mom are now attributed to allowing a man to take advantage of paid paternal leave. Now, there is a push in Missouri to promote paid paternity leave. 

Once a father has legally established paternity, he may feel torn. Surely, many families cannot afford for a dad to take unpaid time off work. On the other hand, a dad may want to have the opportunity to welcome the new addition and spend time caring for an infant, assuring the little one that dad is on duty. 

If a Missouri father needs help establishing paternity, he may not know how to go about the task. Fortunately, a knowledgeable attorney can jump in and lend a hand. An attorney can help a client establish paternity and become educated on the parental rights and responsibilities that come with it. Dads have enough to worry about, and when it comes to legal matters, it can be nice to have an understanding attorney to assist with the legal process of becoming a father.
