The rise of single father households

Single motherhood is a topic with which many Americans are all too familiar -- while often not the simplest of situations, countless mothers are successful in raising one or more children entirely on their own. Single fathers, on the other hand, have been a largely ignored aspect of divorce and separation in Indiana in the past. Shifts in attitudes towards single-father homes could increasingly change the way society looks at single fathers and the stress they face when raising children alone.

Parental rights in complex situations

Determining parental rights in any case can be complex, but what if those involved are guilty of sexual assault?  A topic under scrutiny in today's world is that of parental rights of rapists -- seven states in the country have no laws keeping rapists from seeing their children. Yet what is the outlook on this controversial law, and will Indiana see major changes in the future?  

Single mothers in indiana and the options

The meaning of divorce can vary depending on a wide range of factors. Some Indiana families jump easily over the obstacles of finding a new home, completing mounds of paperwork, dividing assets, and in many cases, taking care of children. But some experience months, and even years, of distress. The issue of child support may always be a controversial one, but support in regards to single mothers is a relatively new focus in the public eye. 

Don't let social media ruin the outcome of your divorce

Getting divorced can be a frustrating and isolating process. You may feel like no one is on your side, and that the odds are stacked against you. However, there are certain things you can do (or avoid doing) to improve your chances of a positive outcome in a divorce. Changing your attitude about social media is one of the most important.

Understanding who covers the kids' healthcare costs

The emotions felt between divorcing couples in Indianapolis tend to run high give the circumstances surrounding the termination of their marriages. Yet despite any negative feelings they may have towards their ex-spouses, divorcing dads still typically maintain a strong love for their kids. It is that same love that buoys them in their efforts to offer continued support to their children. One area of support that must be considered is their kids' ongoing healthcare needs. Information shared by Becker's Hospital Review shows that as recently as 2014, $3 trillion was spent on healthcare in the U.S. The need to cover children's healthcare expenses is apparent; the question is who is primarily responsible for it following a divorce?
