What can fathers do when mothers refuse to agree on paternity?

Not all mothers are willing to let the biological fathers of their children play a role in their children's lives. These mothers may have their reasons for separating the children from their biological fathers, and certain fathers may be OK with that. However, when it comes to fathers who want to be fathers – and want to play a role in the lives of their children – a family court judge may view the issue from a more father-friendly perspective if the father can prove that he's the dad.

Do women automatically have better chances of getting custody?

As a father, one thing you're likely worried about is a mother's right to custody over your own. You know that in the past, people often thought that women were better caretakers than men. As a result, there was an unintentional bias in the courts that saw many children going with their mothers despite having fathers who were equally invested in their futures.

Joint custody has real benefits that you should consider

Although having joint custody does mean that you'll share time with your child with your ex-spouse and have to go some days without seeing your child at all, it's truly in a child's best interests in most cases. As a newly single parent, you should know that there are benefits to you, too.

Why should you choose to adopt?

Choosing adoption can help you bring home a child you want to have in your life as well as help that child live in a protective, healthy environment. Adoption isn't for everyone, but if you think it's for you, these are a few reasons you should consider going through with the adoption.

Protecting time with your child after divorce

Once the dust settles from divorce, most people hope to move on productively with their lives and make the most of their circumstances, especially if there are children involved. However, for many parents who share custody or visitation privileges with their former spouse, the dust never seems to settle, especially when it comes to time spent time with their children.

Divorce: Questions to ask

Before you get a divorce, it's a good idea to consider a few questions. Not asking yourself these questions could end up hurting you as well as leading you to making mistakes. By asking these questions, you can be sure you are moving in the right direction for your life.

Tax credit aims to help parents support children through college

It's always been expensive to raise a child, and that's no different in 2018. A new child tax credit could help you reduce some of the expenses, though, thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The Child Tax Credit is intended to increase in 2018 as well as to increase the number of people who benefit from it.
