Immigration woes affect physical custody

Missouri residents may be as confused as the rest of the nation as they attempt to keep up with the recent changes to immigration laws. Many people are aware that some immigrants have lost physical custody of their children as they attempt to clear up their immigration status. Many of these children are taken into government foster care, and the matter can be complicated to sort. 

Child custody orders protect parents and children

52036829_S.jpgMany Missouri families may be familiar with situations in which parents who live in separate households must figure out how to share custody of a child. Many parents believe they can work out a schedule outside of the court system, and may reason that the parents, though separated, have a friendly relationship. Though this may be a tempting route to explore, not having an official child custody order in place leaves parents vulnerable to future problems. 

Disabled parents fear child custody issues

22551026_S.jpgMissouri 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. 

Child custody laws can apply to daycare workers

28423236_S.jpgOne Missouri mother recently found herself living a nightmare when she arrived to pick her daughter up from daycare. Instead of discussing the day's events, and finding her child happy and ready to go home, she was horrified to find the daycare locked and empty. Fortunately, she found her daughter on a bench outside and learned afterward that action may be taken, because some child custody laws can apply to daycare providers. 

Brad Pitt looks forward to settling child custody case

1922917_S.jpgBrad Pitt is no stranger to the big screen. The famous actor has starred in many movies over the years, earning his spot as a Hollywood icon. Frequently seen at star-studded events, Pitt has become a tabloid favorite, even more so in light of his recent legal woes. Pitt stands as a reminder that even the rich and famous must endure the struggles and stress that can come from divorce and child custody issues

Child custody dispute results in missing child

21492094_S.jpgMissouri parents and grandparents may be familiar with unique custody arrangements. Sometimes, if a parent is not able to care for a child for a number of reasons, the grandparents can file for child custody. Grandparents may be able to provide children with a safe and happy home while a parent cannot do so. 

New camera laws won't affect child custody cases

47167403_S.jpgMissouri parents may have seen the recent news stories pertaining to changes in rules about media cameras in courtrooms. The law now allows more media cameras to be present during certain court proceedings. At first glance, parents with upcoming child custody appearances may feel nervous about the changes. 

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. Aside from the obvious needs of food, clothing and shelter, parents are also tasked with looking after the emotional and educational needs of their children. 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. Currently, courts usually award more child custody time to one parent, while the other has a set schedule for visitation. 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.
