Seeking modification of child custody orders in Missouri

5984493_S (1).jpgWhen a Missouri married couple divorces, they often face continued challenges regarding the future care and upbringing of their children. Most parents want what is best for their kids, although each one's interpretation of what that might be may vary. Sometimes, court intervention is needed to make final decisions. However, even after the court issues an order, life circumstances may change and a parent may need to seek a modification of child custody orders at some point.

Child custody battle between man and supposed porn star

51595049_S (1).jpgA man who drives a truck for a living in a state north of Missouri has become involved in a raging fight concerning the custody of his son. He became a father two years ago after entering a relationship with a woman he claims to have met when she was filming a porn movie. He says he is now facing serious child custody issues that arose when the woman left town with his son.

We understand the importance of fathers' rights in child custody

18214239_S.jpgMuch of the focus in family law and custody issues concerns the rights of mothers and how those should factor into child custody arrangements. In past decades, this intense focus on the mother-child relationship might have made sense, but this no longer reflects how families work and interact in today's world. Fathers' rights are increasingly making headlines as advocates continue to stand up for themselves and their children.

What Missouri couples may learn from Johnny Depp's marital assets

57700634_S.jpgDivorce can be a complicated matter, often involving serious legal challenges for Missouri spouses. It can be quite difficult to negotiate issues concerning marital assets and other property-related topics, especially if communication between spouses is not amicable. Various aspects of a situation may have bearings on how assets are distributed, and couples in Missouri may want to seek clarification of state law before proceeding to court.

Group of men in state outside Missouri fight for fathers' rights

42290439_S.jpgIn Missouri and elsewhere throughout the nation, single fathers are often portrayed in a negative light. Obviously, generalizations of the sort are unfair, since many unmarried fathers are very dedicated and involved in the care and upbringing of their children. The courts in some states, however, still seem to make decisions that favor the rights of mothers or married couples over unwed biological fathers' rights.

Finding legal help re paternity dispute in Missouri

20935215_S (1).jpgFathers in Missouri often face legal challenges regarding their personal rights to seek and obtain custody of their children. Attempting to resolve a paternity dispute without legal assistance often proves difficult and stressful for those involved. An experienced family law attorney has a clear understanding of both state and federal laws that govern such matters and would be able to offer immediate guidance in such situations.

A state justice says paternal rights will not be terminated

17213979_S.jpgSome families in Missouri may be among others who sometimes face legal issues that require intervention in order to be resolved. Extenuating circumstances often complicate matters and some cases wind up being presented to a state supreme court for a decision. In a recent situation outside Missouri, a father has been fighting to have his paternal rights reinstated after a trial court determined they should be terminated.

DNA paternity testing

32378066_S.jpgWhen a man or mother has doubts or suspicions that a man is the father of a child, bitter custody battles often ensue. To determine the truth, paternity tests are ordered. These tests take a close look at the biological makeup, or DNA, of both the child and the other individual. DNA is totally unique and cannot be replicated. The likelihood of paternity that is generated from the comparison is extremely accurate.

Why establish paternity?

22783592_S.jpgPaternity is the establishment of a child's legal father. It is important -- especially for unmarried couples -- to establish this status because in general, a child is not considered to have a father if the couple is not married. There are many reasons why you should make sure this process is undertaken, not the least of which is protecting your paternal rights.
