Leave for dads can help promote father's rights

18461978_S.jpgFather's rights are a complex issue. During a divorce, many judges in the St. Louis area probably still feel that raising children is "women's work."

When couples therapy ends in divorce

21032311_S.jpgIf you and your spouse are experiencing significant marital challenges, you may be considering attending couples therapy. Couples therapy can be a very beneficial experience for you and/or your spouse. However, it is important to understand that simply because you are attending couples therapy, your marriage may still end in divorce.

A helpful tip for divorcing parents
