Research shows fathers receive preference in child custody cases

140546003_s.jpgIt might surprise some Missouri residents that research has found, when it comes to child custody cases, even in situations where abuse is alleged, fathers are given preference over mothers. This goes against the popular belief that mothers are given preference in child custody battles.

Rights of a father when he's not married

31276729_S.jpgThere are many situations where unmarried fathers in Maryland are in committed, unmarried relationships with the mother of their children. However, there are just as many instances of children growing up without a father in the home. In fact, 40% of children today are born to unmarried parents, and many unmarried dads are unaware of their legal rights.

Dads can be custodial parents too

31375552_S.jpgFathers in Missouri and throughout the country have an opportunity to win custody of their children. Part of winning custody is making a good impression in the courtroom.

Tips for fathers in protecting their rights after divorce

47872874_S (1).jpgWhen Missouri parents get a divorce, they may be concerned about child custody negotiations and how much time they will be able to spend with their children.

Filing a paternity case to establish father's rights

113612660_S.jpgFathers in Missouri who were not married when their child was born will need to file a petition to establish paternity to enjoy the same rights as fathers who were married to a child's mother when the child was born. This is true even if a father's name is on the birth certificate and there is no doubt that he is the father of the child.

Appeals court: Judge could have acted differently in custody case

15533510_s.jpgMany fathers in Illinois might be inclined to think that judges who rule in their family law cases might have a predisposition to rule in favor of mothers when it comes to child custody. A recent case from another state highlights how a judge's personal opinions might intrude into the adjudication of a case -- even if, ultimately, it does not affect the outcome.

Lamar Odom in the news for ongoing child custody dispute

10305334_s (1).jpgOver the years basketball player Lamar Odom has been in the news a number of times. Whether it is due to his basketball career, or the fact that the 6-foot-10-inch athlete is married to Khloe Kardashian, his name is frequently making headlines.

Do you think 35 percent of parenting time is enough in Illinois?

Many dads want equal parenting time. Yet, they find themselves stuck with just seeing their kids every other weekend, sparingly for a week night dinner -- and in some cases -- for a few weeks in the summer. However, the issue is no longer being brushed under the rug, and instead many states -- including Illinois -- are considering child custody laws that reflect a situation closer to equal parenting time.
