Written by Gwen Randall-Young   

"Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you."

Robert Fulghum

Before even getting married couples should talk about their beliefs and attitudes to parenting. This is as important a criterion for compatibility as interests or long-term goals.

This is also an issue that can undermine a marriage and cause untold distress for children. If a couple discovers that, once well into the parenting process, they are at odds as to how the children should be raised, they should not delay getting some professional coaching or facilitating.

Written by Victim   

Blood type can be used to disprove paternity in many cases.

The ABO blood type charts below can be used to predict the possibilities of paternity.

The charts below can assist you to determine either:

The Importance of Paternity Orders PDF Print E-mail

Written by Clarissa Finnell, JD   


Most fathers believe that if their name appears on their child’s birth certificate their parental rights have been established. But what does signing a birth certificate or paternity affidavit really mean? As fathers’ of children born outside of marriage it is important to be aware of what rights you have and to make sure those rights are protected.

Every state will have its own set of laws concerning the establishment of paternity. It is important that you contact an attorney in your state to determine exactly what must be done to establish your parental rights in your state. For the purpose of this article I will be discussing the laws in Indiana. In Indiana, when a child is born out of wedlock the biological mother automatically has sole legal custody. Fathers may sign a paternity affidavit once the child is born acknowledging under oath that he is the father of that child. Make sure you fully understand the ramifications of signing this form. Many states utilize paternity affidavits or other forms of acknowledging paternity. This is the form you sign in order to be listed as father on the child’s birth certificate. You need to fully read any affidavit or acknowledgement before signing it. Understand you are not just giving the child your last name.

Missed opportunities
One of the most magical moments of my life was being at the birth of my child. I wouldn't have missed it for the world. I remember watching him squirm and cry as he met the world. I remember how he paused to listen to my voice as I whispered my love for him and commitment to him. To this day, spending time with my kids continues to be one of my favorite activities. To not spend time with my children is unfathomable.

Being a separated dad PDF Print E-mail

Written by Dan Roberts   

Dad child sillhouette backpackNo father wants to be separated from his kids. But, as separated families become more common, millions of dads now live apart from their children. Luckily, with a little common sense and compromise from you and your child's mum, you can still have a great time with your kids. Dan Roberts looks into how...

Whatever the circumstances, break-ups are always painful. And they’re even more painful if you have to leave your kids behind, then only get to see them every other weekend. Having spent the last nine years as a weekend dad to my son, Ben, I know only too well how hard this can be.

Sadly, it’s a position an increasing number of dads find themselves in – nearly a quarter of all kids in the UK live with only one parent, usually their mother.

After reading about a day in the life of Megan Garrett and her husband Tim in The Oregonian earlier this week, I needed a nap.

The couple — both college educated, both lucky enough to be employed in a state where unemployment is over 12 percent, together earning $64,000 a year — work staggered hours and “tag team” their parenting so that they pay as little as possible in daycare for three-year-old Cole and 19-month-old Bailey.

As a result, reporter Paige Parker writes:

Tips on spiritual parenting

"I do not know how to bring up children," says Bharat Kapur, publisher of Indian magazine Parenting and a father of twins.

A brief pause, and then: "I suppose it is pure guesswork. Nobody has the answers, so you just be yourself, and let your children be what they are. The secret is being true to yourself, and doing what comes naturally."

Written by Jeremy D. Morley   

Here are some tips for attorneys and clients faced with instituting or defending child abduction proceedings under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, whether in the United States or internationally.

In a nutshell, a Hague Convention application may be made when a child is taken or retained across an international border, away from his or her habitual residence, without the consent of a parent who has rights of custody, if the two countries are parties to the Convention. The child must be promptly returned to the habitual residence unless the return will create a grave risk of harm to the child.

The child remains innocent PDF Print E-mail

Written by Shoma A. Chatterji   

Though a child born out of wedlock is not considered illegitimate any more in the eyes of the law, the same child is not entitled to a share in the property that is inherited by his parents.

The illegitimate child’s innocence is victimised by the sins committed by others. A child born out of wedlock or of a void or illegal marriage is considered illegitimate. Children pay for the decisions taken by the parents and are denied inheritance rights in principle, if not in terms of the legal statutes, that they now have access to. Even worse, a child born of rape is stigmatised and is treated as illegitimate both by society and by law because it is difficult to ascertain the paternity of a child conceived in rape.

Extra-marital Relations and its Impact on children PDF Print E-mail

Written by Nishtha Soonee   

Marriage is the unique bond between two people that links them together emotionally, spiritually and sexually in an enduring union based on common values, love and commitment. The circumstances that contribute to the fracturing of the intimate bond, i.e., an extra-marital relation, are diverse but most often involve transferring of emotional energy that was once directed to the marital harmony and for the family and children to other sources such as career and outside interests and friends. Under these conditions people may re-connect emotionally and spiritually with someone outside of their relationship by fulfilling ones need for acceptance and understanding. Extra marital relationships such as these begin benignly but may later evolve by becoming sexual posing a serious threat to the primary marital relationship.

In the Best Interests of Breastfed Children ~ Visitation PDF Print E-mail

Written by Elizabeth N. Baldwin, Esq.   
Breastfeeding mothers are faced with a difficult challenge when they separate from the baby's father. The baby needs to spend time with the father frequently and without lengthy separations from the mother, in order to promote and protect the father's bond and the breastfeeding relationship. Many people (including the baby's father, lawyers, or judges) may not understand why it is important to protect the breastfeeding relationship. A mother must educate everyone involved about the importance of breastfeeding and how parenting time can be shaped to encourage the father's bond.
