The importance of dads in a child's well-being

31635281_S.jpgIf you are a father facing a divorce in Kansas with one or more children, you will no doubt want to find out how you can remain connected to your children during and after your divorce. Even if you and your to-be former spouse are able to cooperate positively to reach agreements on how you will divide up your marital assets, the topic of how to share time with your kids can be a difficult one.

Having a voice in creating your parenting plan

48488785_S.jpgThe general assumption is that when you go into child custody proceedings as a father, the deck is already stacked against. Countless men come to us here at the Stange Law Firm with this same fear, and it does seem justified. Statistics typically show that a majority of parents awarded primary custody are women. Yet you should know that (at least not in Kansas) this is not a legal precedent, and that as a father, you are entitled to as much authority over the raising of your children as your ex-wife. 

What authority do you retain as a divorced dad?

28858038_S.jpgIt may be easy to feel as though you are being squeezed out of your children's lives after having divorced their mother. This is likely due to the perception amongst many in Wichita that mothers are typically favored by the courts in custodial matters. While the law states that technically no parent is favored in custodial proceedings, the aforementioned perception is supported by statistics, which generally show that custodial parents are often mothers. Yet simply because that has been a historical trend does not mean it applies to your case. Indeed, you should be aware of what authority you retain as a divorced father. 

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.

Dealing with your ex-wife's relocation

45758308_S.jpgNot having your kids around you all the time is often one of the most difficult byproducts of a divorce to deal with. Dealing with it can become even more difficult if your ex-wife suddenly comes to you and says that she intends to move away from Wichita. Several divorced fathers have come to us here at the Stange Law Firm in a similar situation wondering if there is anything they can do to stop such a relocation. While you may not be able to block your ex-wife from moving, you will be happy to know that there is legal recourse available to you. 

America's changing family dynamics

45061231_S.jpgAs American families continue to shift away from traditional dynamics, so, too, have the laws that surround them. With the rise of blended families comes the need to plan for children in the best way possible. Some Kansas parents, however, cannot seem to reach an agreement. Just as the traditional household has changed, the gendered laws that prioritize mothers in regard to child custody have faded to the background.
