Calling attention to paternal rights in Missouri

47049516_S.jpgThe birth of a child is usually a joyous occasion, and parents in Missouri and beyond typically look forward to the moment when the new baby gets to meet his or her family. There is much to be done to prepare for the birth of a child. In cases where biological parents are not married, establishing paternal rights might be among such tasks.

Establishing paternity can help prevent criminal charges

As summer draws to a close, Missouri parents are focused on their children, preparing for a new school year, sporting events and other fun things. While certainly, watching a child learn and grow is an exciting part of fatherhood, many dads might not be aware of how important it is to establish paternity. A recent tragedy left one father facing serious criminal charges

New measures may be taken to support importance of paternity

100623406_S.jpgThe state of Missouri realizes that fathers are important. While other places in the country have taken measures to support fathers and matters regarding paternity, most companies in Missouri still do not offer paid paternal leave. This can place an unfair burden on new dads and deprive an infant of critical bonding time. Besides, Mom would probably love an extra set of hands around to help as she recovers from the birth. 

Tragedy and paternity

23116342_S.jpgMissouri residents, even if not fans of rap music, may recall the untimely and tragic slaying of next generation superstar XXXTENTACION last summer. The artist, who was quickly becoming a favorite among teens and young adults, was slain in a hail of gunfire. His girlfriend at the time had recently found out she was carrying a child, and she is now asking the court for help to prove paternity

Times are changing for fathers' rights

39304097_S.jpgMissouri parents may look back upon their own childhoods and be amazed at how much has changed. Over the past few decades, such advances have been made that many parents find it amusing to see the bewilderment on a child's face upon hearing that just a generation ago, children their age did not have cellphones, the internet and other technology that is now commonplace. Gadgets are not the only advances that have been made, and now people are noticing exciting new standards regarding fathers' rights

Establish paternity now, save a headache later

42327406_S.jpgMissouri families look forward to the arrival of a new baby with preparation and anticipation. Making sure the nursery is well-stocked and everything placed just so can be fun, but there are other matters to tend to before Baby comes home. Establishing paternity is an important part of a child's life, and a way for parents to ensure that the child will be well cared for by both mom and dad. 

Father begs for help in child custody case

107171137_S.jpgMissouri parents need only to peruse a daily newspaper or swipe through the day's headlines online to realize that, in America, dads are winning. In decades past, it was considered the norm for a mother to be awarded physical custody of a child, often through no particular merit of her own. These days, fathers across the nation are fighting for their rights, and their children, and winning child custody cases. 

Boy missing in case regarding custody rights

54482756_S.jpgMissouri 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

46151390_S.jpgA musician faces legal challenges, and the results aren't yet clear. One woman claims that the man, the popular rapper Offset, is the father of her 2-month-old baby. 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.
