Fathers have an important role to play

Many fathers in Alaska do not have physical custody of their children, but that does not mean they are uninvolved in their children's lives. For example, many non-custodial parents share legal custody of the kids, meaning that they have a right to participate in the major decisions about a child's upbringing, education and health care. In addition, many fathers who do not have custody do have extensive visitation rights and are paying child support to cover their kids' expenses.

Social media posts can jeopardize a custody battle

If you don’t think that your tweet will end up in family court, think again. Whether you’re fighting for custody or challenging a child support order, one social media slip-up as a father can land you in a compromising position if you aren’t careful. It is true that actions speak louder than words and some things are better left unsaid, or, in this case, unshared. Here are three ways that your posts on social media can affect your custody case, for the worst.

How fathers should act during custody proceedings

Both mothers and fathers in Alaska have the right to pursue custody of their children. However, there are certain tips that fathers should remember when going through the process. For example, dads will benefit from a solid relationship with their children. This may mean calling regularly or otherwise making sure that the child understands that their father is available at any time.
