What are fathers' rights and why are they claimed?

The issue of parental rights comes up in divorces a lot of the time, but it has definitions outside that specific legal process. Single mothers often have their rights and responsibilities recognized immediately. But fathers who have children out of marriage may need to fight a little harder.

How can men get their rights as fathers?

There is no bond stronger in human history than that of a parent and a child. This creates a lot of love, but it can also create a lot of drama if parents are not on board with each other's plans for the future. It can seem like a punishment if the law does not yet recognize a parent's rights.

Child custody in Nebraska doesn't default to mothers

There was a time in which divorces involving children almost always went one way. Mothers almost invariably got sole custody of children, with the social belief that women were the only natural nurturers and caregivers of young people. Recent studies have shown that routine and caring parents who set good expectations have better adjusted children.

Fathers' rights can be voluntarily recognized or claimed

Parents always have responsibilities to their children, and they can extend into a child's adulthood as well. However, while they are below the age of 18, children are also subject to parents' rights. These include time to raise and spend time with them, as well as decisions about important issues like education and health care.

Will fathers be surprised by divorce statistics?

Going through a divorce is often a difficult process for both spouses, but, in some cases, men feel as if they get the "short end of the stick." This might be especially true for men who have children and are involved in a child custody dispute. Overall, divorce statistics in America show a stark, and sometimes shocking, picture of how these cases are handled, who is involved and what the end result might be.

The task of proving unseen abuse in a custody dispute

If you ask ten different people what kind of evidence would be permissible in court, you would likely get several different answers. It seems that everyone has their own opinion about what is "legal" when it comes to proving abuse allegations, whether they be verbal or physical.

Fighting gender bias in a judicial decision

Even today, when one would think gender bias no longer exists, it still runs rampant in our U.S. court systems. Numerous studies have shown that even more so than lay people, judges tend to default to implicit bias when making decisions regarding matters in which there are traditional gender roles. Cases such as custody matters, domestic violence, and sexual assaults all fit the bill.

Having involved dads helps children in school
