Child custody: When should family members take action?

122059547_S.jpgThe state of Missouri takes the well-being of children seriously. Indeed, parents often find themselves stressed out and exhausted from dealing with daily life. Sometimes a parent is simply unable to properly care for a child, and family members may struggle when deciding if they should take legal action regarding child custody

Emergency situation leads to change in child custody

24666753_S.jpgMillions of Americans now struggle with drug addiction, and Missouri is no exception. Methamphetamine is one of the most dangerous drugs around, as users often get hooked fast and hard, and many feel unable to quit using even if they want to.

Fraudulent story leaves grandfather pondering child custody

37459184_S.jpgAuthorities in Missouri rushed into action, issuing an Amber Alert when they received word that a young woman and her infant son had been abducted. Supposedly, the child's father was a suspect in the early stages of the investigation.

What seemed at first to be a frightening kidnapping has morphed into a situation about child custody

Father seeks justice in child custody case

85272187_S.jpgMost Missouri parents realize that raising children can be both rewarding and stressful.

12343444_S.jpgMissouri residents may have seen a recent news story regarding a missing person.

New bill could shake up child custody standards

46594751_S.jpgMissouri is trying to ensure that progress continues to be made when it comes to families that reside within the state.

Currently, it is not against the norm for one parent to have more custody than the other, but many parents insist such policy is unfair. 

How long will it take to regain child custody?

97681773_S.jpgLife is unpredictable, and sometimes, a parent can face a situation or set of circumstances in which he or she is at risk for losing custody of his or her children. When this happens, parents may become discouraged quickly, because it can often take a long time to regain child custody. A Missouri parent may feel as if there is little chance he or she will be able to jump through all the hoops necessary to get his or her children back, especially if the parent is struggling with another issue, such as being unemployed, facing addiction, or not having a safe and stable home environment for a child.
