Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 29-08-2006

Whether you choose to adopt through an agency or privately, you’ll need a guide to help you through. Click here for tips from other parents on how to choose an adoption agency or lawyer.


I need to know if there is anyone in my area that offers affordable legal advise for a soon to be, (fighting) single father. IE Custody, Rights and thus on. I appreciate any help.


Single dad I live in Los Angeles. My son was born in northern California and currently lives there with his mother. I am very actively involved in my sons life but traveling back and forth is very expensive and its hard for me. I want my son to be closer to me but the mother doesn't seem to want to work with me. Ive been there since day one and need to seek legal advice; and help would be great.


Hello guy's.I'm a recently separated dad of 2 children(not married) can anyone tell me of a good settlement lawyer in the northern suburbs. Thanks.


When I go to court, the friend of the court is always on the ex-wife side. At 1st paying was not a problem , but almost dieing from inter-feron for H-C, I ask for reduction, Judge called me a dead beat dad. So at 136 lbs. I worked harder with a broken neck and back that did not heil , know 4 yrs. later I have to have both surgeries again and I'm a Dead Beat Dad that can't work, going threw bankrupcey and there are no sights for help. We all need to get together and change a law written in 1938. After all, it's about the kids is sent it. But they make loving fathers and mothers the bad guys. Even when we want too.


I agree--couldn't make it without the help of a guide.


my wife, i and her daughter (from another man) plan on moving from NC to RI in order to be closer to family and our support group. however, the father is telling us he cant afford to pay for the two 2 week visitations during the summer and instead he wants her for an entire month straight. my wife says that is unacceptable because the child's father has never had her for longer then a long weekend. the father say he is going to take us to court over this. can anyone tell me what we should expect?
