A Father's Role in his Child's Life is Important

• In the past communities and courts have devalued a father’s role in his child’s life.

• In recent years there has been a shift and fathers have been able to gain custody of their children.

• On the whole, children tend to be better adjusted with both parents playing an active role in their lives.

Fathers Often Pay More in Child Support than is required!

• The child support enforcement system many times does not take crucial factors into consideration when calculating a child support amount.

• Child support determined by the child support enforcement system is almost always too high.

• Child support may be modified by a court when a Father has experienced a substantial change in circumstances or when the amount was determined by the child support enforcement system.

My name is Bruce Eastman and I have been practicing family law in St. Louis, Missouri for 30 years with a heavy emphasis on fathers’ rights. I am a strong advocate for fathers in their attempts to be taken seriously when it comes to parenting their children. I am very successful in gaining visitation and custody rights for the fathers I represent.
