Fathers' Rights Archives

Boy missing in case regarding custody rights

Missouri parents may personally know the stress that may arise when one parent disagrees with an arrangement regarding a child. It is important to be aware that, once an order has been put in place regarding custody rights, neither party can change the arrangement without utilizing the legal process. Recently, a Missouri child has gone missing, and authorities think they know who took him.

Paternity documents surface in disputed family case

He disputes the paternity and the documents that have popped up on social media. If found to be the father of the child, the man will have certain parental rights and responsibilities. Missouri fans of the rapper will likely want to follow the story as it develops. 

Missouri parents could give up custody rights under new bill

38961503_S.jpgA proposed state law would allow parents to seek outside help for caring for their children without facing charges of abuse or neglect. A Missouri state senator has introduced a bill that allows parents to give up their custody rights temporarily if they are unable to care for their children while they seek help for drug addiction or work to resolve any other major issues affecting their lives and livelihood. The practice is already used in the state, but the law would give a legal shelter against charges of child abandonment or neglect. 

Modern divorce struggles include paternal rights issues and more

11684174_S.jpgSome lawyers have seen it all. In the field of family law, modern trends are creating new issues for couples to fight about. Whether it is about a father's paternal rights to an embryo, or about contentious social media postings, Missouri families have plenty to disagree about during a divorce. 

Man says he was tricked into giving away custody rights

11681212_S.jpgOne man in another state is without his daughter after an incident with Child Protective Services that was recently highlighted in the news. The man claims that he was tricked into signing away custody rights in a moment of duress and that he did not understand the document he was signing. He is now taking the matter to court. Missouri fathers who aren't able to see their own children may find themselves empathizing with the man's situation. 

Man fights for paternal rights in court case

36419114_S.jpgFor some, having a child outside of marriage could prove to be problematic when it comes time to see and form a relationship with the child. A recent news story gives details of one man's fight for his paternal rights in an atypical case. Although the incident did not occur in Missouri, the details of the case may provide useful information for other individuals experiencing similar issues of paternity. 

For Missouri fathers, child custody can be an uphill battle

10415673_S.jpgMissouri fathers have an integral role to play in their children's lives. Unlike past generations, many people now acknowledge just how important it is for a child to have ready access to not just their mother after a divorce, but to both parents. Unfortunately, fathers sometimes still face an uphill battle when it comes to asserting their paternal rights during child custody matters.

Establishing paternity is essential for unwed fathers

8507983_S (1).jpgFathers of children born out of wedlock typically have understandable concerns regarding their legal rights. Unfortunately, many Missouri fathers are under the impression that they have fewer legal rights than those who fathered children in a marriage. Once paternity is established, fathers can move forward with establishing custody rights to build a relationship with their children.

Fathers' rights a concern for one Missouri group

56370715_S.jpgTwo weekends a month and two to four weeks during the summer - this is the current standard that many noncustodial parents face when a Missouri divorce is finalized. In some cases, this is actually more that the parent will take advantage of. However, in many instances, the noncustodial parent strives to remain a part of the child's life yet finds it difficult to do so with such limited time constraints. More often than not, it is the father who faces these constraints, and this is causing some to raise concerns regarding fathers' rights as they relate to custody issues.

Unwed dad in another state fights for child custody

44124489_S.jpgNot all unwed dads are the deadbeat, disengaged, unhelpful parents that the media often makes them out to be. In Missouri and elsewhere, there are many who are willing to work hard to fully financially support and otherwise raise their children. The problem is that many unmarried fathers run into serious child custody obstacles right at the starting gate.
