Actor's custody dispute continues with appellate win

20125528_S.jpgActor Jason Patric is one step closer to being recognized as the legal father of his biological son. Patric and on-again off-again girlfriend Danielle Schreiber conceived the child through in vitro fertilization. About a year after their son was born, the couple broke up for good.

Missouri grandparents struggle with divorce too

7715178_s.jpgGrandparents can end up playing a rather unique role during a divorce. While the grandparents want to be there for their adult child who is going through the divorce, the same grandparents also want to continue to maintain a close relationship with their grandchildren and be there for them emotionally during this time. However, while being there is one thing -- and is encouraged -- grandparents need to make sure to not overstep their boundaries.

Study: Time with dad boosts children's self-esteem

It's important for divorced fathers to maintain a lasting relationship with their children. For not only is this something that means a lot to dads, a recent study also determined that children who spend more one-on-one time with their fathers have better self-esteem.

Father awarded visitation rights in ongoing custody battle

Back in February we posted on the heartbreaking story of a father who had only seen his daughter once in four years.

However, in what is being considered a win for fathers around the country, the biological dad was recently awarded visitation rights.

Paternity case: Father denied visitation rights

A Court of Appeals recently ruled that a teen around the age of 16 will not learn who his biological father is until he is 18 years old. As of now, the teenager believes that the man who raised him, and is married to his mother, is his biological father. But, the truth is that he was conceived when his mother was having on ongoing affair, and highlights the importance for a father to ask for a paternity test early on.

Consider visitation: One father never has children for holidays

When you combine divorce, visitation and the holidays, the end result can be a somewhat frustrating mess for parents who are divorced. And while we typically focus on issues related to the biological parents fighting over who gets the kids for which holidays, often times stepparents also want to be able to have their stepchildren -- the whole family -- together for the holidays.

Volunteering when the ex has the kids this holiday season

The holidays can be a tough time for divorced parents with children. With one parent getting the kids, it's a natural reaction for the other parent to feel lonely and sad. And with many exes continuously switching off on the holidays year-after-year, a coping mechanism is very important.

Parents with joint custody need to create a plan for Halloween

It's that time of year again: pumpkins are being carved and the preparations for this year's Halloween costume are almost all set to go.
