Missouri law seeks to give fathers equal parenting time after divorce

There may be nothing more important to a parent than the parent-child relationship. For as far back as anyone can remember, fathers in Missouri were not given much of a chance to spend time with their kids after a divorce. Sure, a father could get the court to order joint custody of the children in divorce -yet, that did not extend to visitation rights. Judges were directed under the statute to award "significant, but not necessarily equal" parenting time between the parents. That generally translated into fathers getting to spend time with their kids every other weekend and a few hours during one day a week.
