Parental rights issues are often the center of contentious divorces, with both parties fighting for their own desired outcome. Divorces usually center on how to divide money and how to handle child custody, but Missouri parents often fail to realize how their online and social media activity can affect the outcome of a case. It is usually beneficial to understand the steps to take to ensure that online activity does not play a role in parental rights.

Often, fathers may find themselves facing legal battles regarding their fathers' rights, simply to secure visitation time with their children.
