The problem with being a "Disneyland Dad"

25320706_S.jpgThe common school of thought is that the cards are stacked against men when it comes to being awarded custody of their children during divorce proceedings. While this has often proven to be true historically, recent data suggests that this trend may be reversing. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the percentage of fathers who had custody of their kids rose from 16 percent in 1994 to 19.6 percent in 2016. Yet even with this increase, it seems that mothers might still be favored in custody proceedings. This may cause some men to become bitter and push them towards becoming "Disneyland Dads." 

How dads can prepare for the custody battle

31273369_S.jpgIf you're a dad facing divorce in Wichita, you're most likely concerned about the impending custody battle. In this case, being prepared is of the utmost importance. You want to establish to the court that you're capable of providing care to your child, which requires taking the right steps. Fatherly.com offers the following guidance in this case, which will allow you to make the best impression during your custody hearing.

Establishing paternity in Kansas

30543596_S (1).jpgQuite a bit of misinformation exists about establishing paternity in Wichita. Many seem to believe that it can only be done through genetic testing, through which results are shockingly revealed by someone exclaiming "You are the father!" In reality, paternity is a concept that is more presumed than it is proven. Many clients have come to us here at the Stange Law Firm questioning the exact processes for establishing paternity is Kansas (both in cases wanting to disprove they fathered a child and those where they wanted to verify a child was indeed their own). If you share the same question, then you may be surprised to learn that there are actually several methods the state uses.
