Separated Dads


It's hard to be a father separated from your children. You worry about them, you want to see them and be involved with their lives. But that's not always easy. There are all kinds of problems you have to deal with, legal, financial and emotional. It can be a very rough road.That's why we made SeparatedDads. It's a complete guide to dealing with life as a separated father.

We show you how to deal with all the obstacles life can put in your way, what to do when you're in an emotional trough, how to negotiate with problems about custody and contact, and even how to introduce a new partner to your children.

What happens if your ex wants to move with the kids, or if she gets a new partner? SeparatedDads deals with those issues, and helps you find the proper legal channels when you need them - anyone who's had to deal with Family Court knows what a maze it can be.

We help you deal with child support payments, and how to communicate with your kids, with ideas for things to do when you're all together, which is the best time of all.

We welcome your questions, which are answered by the same experts who write our articles, separated fathers themselves who understand the problems. We're on your side.

28years on my daughter contacts me !
Can anyone help me with this situation as my daughter has just contacted me after 28 years apart. My divorce was terrible and access to my daughter was continually refused by my ex wife. Despite going through the courts for access we had 400 miles between us and despite all my efforts it was emotionally difficult to keep fighting against my ex wife. With difficulty I decided to terminate all contact with her although I maintained financial support right up to her leaving college. My daughter has now phoned me and is very angry with me am and after a 5 hour phone call last week I told her I loved her very much and she dimissed that as ridiculous. We have since sent eachother photos but I have heard nothing for nearly a week and its tearing me apart. Can anyone related to this and give me some advice.
