For thousands of fathers in America, Father’s Day was one of the few days this year they were able to see their children. For others, it was another day spent in a seemingly endless custody battle against a system that was stacked against them from the start. For far too many, that battle proved too […]
The National Parents Organization has polled the American public in several states and found that the vast majority, over 70%, support joint physical custody after divorce whenever possible.

A study commissioned by the CustodyXChange, just in time for Father’s Day, has determined how much parenting time fathers are given, on average, in each state in the United States.

In a novel twist, a mother in North Carolina was jailed after having the divorced couple’s daughter baptized without the father’s permission. What makes this situation so unique is not only that the mother was sentenced and jailed, but also that while the parents actually agreed in principle that they wanted their daughter to be […]
