Women's changing workplace roles alter men's roles with kids

Fathers' roles with their children have been changing, some experts claim, as many fathers are involved more in caring for and nurturing their children. Long thought of as the role of mothers, fathers in recent years have shown that they can take on those same tasks and raise well-adjusted children.

What rights do fathers have before birth?

Most fathers don't think about the rights they have over their child before it's born. However, decisions made pre-birth can have a substantial effect on the life of your baby. As such, some fathers may want to play a part in decisions that apply to medical testing, medical procedures, and other issues during pregnancy. Disagreements can arise over these decisions, and it's not unheard of for a father to try to assert his opinions in court.

Can I claim paternity if I didn't know I had a child?

When a father isn't married, he may have to jump through some legal red tape to establish himself as the legal father of his child. If the biological mother, for example, tries to claim that someone else is the father, the biological father may have trouble claiming his parental rights. If the father is not aware of his status and not aware of the child until after the child has been born, it can present even more challenges.

Why law firms are devoting time to fathers' rights issues

Family and divorce law firms around the country are devoting more of their practice time to fathers' rights issues. That's because men often don't get a fair shake in their divorce proceedings, especially when it comes to issues surrounding child custody.
