Child Custody Archives

Disabled parents fear child custody issues

Missouri parents would likely agree that each parent-child relationship is different. In an age where parents are aware of the far-reaching extent of child abuse across the nation, many fear that the regular scrapes, bumps and bruises that children get from time to time may be mistaken by onlookers as a sign of physical abuse in the home. Recently, parents who suffer from conditions that have rendered them blind or deaf have spoken out, saying they feel they are often singled out in these situations, and they fear their handicap can lead to a change in child custody.

Abuse charges can lead to loss of child custody

13673792_S.jpgWhen a parent commits a crime, the kids can lose their time. Most Missouri parents would likely agree that when it comes to raising their children, they would do anything in their power to ensure the kids are safe and happy. In situations where parents maintain separate households, and there is a child custody arrangement, the actions of one parent can still affect the entire family. Sometimes a lapse in judgment on the part of a parent can lead to criminal charges, and parents should realize that this can directly affect the amount of time they get to spend with their children. 

Educational neglect can become a child custody matter

29809032_S.jpgSeeing to the needs of their children maintains a top spot on the priority list of Missouri parents.

When it comes to child custody, the ability of a parent to ensure that their children receive a proper education can be called into question. 

Big changes may be in store for child custody laws

54427908_S.jpgThe state of Missouri is considering making changes to the way the courts handle child custody arrangements.

A new bill making it's way through the state legislature aims to even out the amount of time spent with a child between both parents.
