Fathers' rights movement in Arkansas gains momentum

In recent history, mothers were typically assumed to be the primary caregivers of children. However, a recent fathers' rights movement has gained momentum over the past few years in the United States, including in Arkansas. The Department of Child Support Enforcement in Arkansas looks into paternity issues in the state. While most states now do recognize the father's rights to custody in a divorce, a child born out of wedlock may still be denied interactions with the father due to the lack of any specific law.

Social media prenuptial agreements can be made legally binding

For some, the end of a marriage results in bitter battles between estranged spouses. In fact, the new era of social media is helping acrimonious exes find a new frontier to stake out their bitterness. Arkansas recognizes valid prenuptial agreements between spouses, and Little Rock residents could benefit from a social media clause in a prenuptial pact.

Father's rights: child taken without father's consent

Those most affected by a divorce are often children. Child custody issues are exacerbated when the child was conceived out of wedlock. Father's rights campaigns are ever increasing in the United States, especially in light of the fact that common perception is that the courts are more sympathetic to the biological mothers in child custody issues. In Arkansas, the Office of Child Support Enforcement looks into the matter of paternity in such cases.

Fathers today are winning more child custody disputes

Custodial issues are a primary cause for bitterness in divorce in Pulaski, Arkansas, and elsewhere. It is often assumed that courts have gender bias in custody issues; there is a wide range of protests among biological fathers. However, the legal system has been recognizing fathers' rights in divorce cases more often lately.
