Paternity: Rights or responsibilities?

102506420_s.jpgMissouri dads are on a mission to do the best they can for their children. When a baby is born, establishing paternity is a necessary step, but it is far from the last thing on a dad's to do list. Becoming a father might seem overwhelming, but a community outreach program aims to assist. 

Every parent knows that raising a child can be rewarding, but being a good father requires hard work too. In addition to making sure a child is supported both financially and emotionally, many Missouri dads are dealing with other stresses in life. Legal woes, struggling to find steady employment and other hardships might seem discouraging. 

A program based in St. Louis is touted to be an intense, boot-camp style approach to give dads a crash course in all the rights and responsibilities that accompany paternity. The program has had success in the past, and it has helped about 40,000 Missouri kids see that they can count on their father. Unfortunately, the program lasts for about four hours each day for almost six weeks, and this might not be a feasible option for many busy dads. 

A father who is looking for some help with a legal matter regarding paternity has another option. In many cases, a knowledgeable attorney can help a client exercise his paternal rights while also help to ensure that any decisions regarding custody or child support are handled by the court. This will help protect the relationship between father and child in the future, and a father can be sure he is doing what's right.
