Remember to put your child first in child custody cases

As you go through a child custody battle, it is easy to focus on how to get to your ex. You might want to make things difficult for your ex. Trying to do that can make your focus move away from your child, and it is crucial that your focus remains on what is best for your child.

Unique challenges face unmarried couples

Unmarried couples face some very unique challenges. In our previous blog post, we discussed how fathers have very little say in what happens to the baby before he or she is born.

Mothers usually have more rights before a child's birth

When you find out that you are going to become a father, your thoughts probably go toward what you are going to do for your child once he or she is born. Most fathers want what is best for their child and are willing to do what they have to do to make that happen. For some fathers, their hands are tied for a bit. This is because the mother of the child has almost sole rights to determine what happens to the child while she is pregnant.
