STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - January 4, 2023 - (Newswire.com)

January is known as "Divorce Month," and many unsuspecting fathers are not ready for the worst-case scenario. Studies show that women initiate divorces as much as 69% of the time, and the Dads' Resource Center helps to prepare single fathers for the possibility that access to their children may be in jeopardy if their separation turns contentious.

"Most fathers assume that custody of children will work out in a reasonable manner," said Dads' Resource Center Executive Director Jeffrey Steiner. "That is not always the case, and with the way court, county, and human service systems tend to work against fathers, they can very quickly find themselves in a deep hole that is nearly impossible to get out of, which most hurts their children."

A 2019 Dads' Resource Center study of 700 contested custody cases found that judges awarded full or primary custody to mothers in 496 cases, fathers in 100 cases, and joint custody in 104 cases. The Dads' Resource Center has investigated the use of protection from abuse orders to gain advantage in matters of custody as well as a lack of standards for the hiring and supervision of guardian ad litems assigned to represent children in family court matters. 

With potential barriers such as these ahead of them, newly separated fathers should:

Trust their gut - While most fathers are deferential to the children's mother, if their intuition is telling them she is making business decisions, they should resign themselves to doing what they believe is in the best interests of the children. 

Consider staying in the family home - If the decision of custody of children is placed into the hands of the court, a judge is very likely to grant an initial order to keep custody as it currently exists. This will then be the baseline moving forward. Unless absolutely necessary, don't move out before there is a court order.

Find good legal counsel - Understand there are good, average, and bad attorneys. The costs for contested custody battles can skyrocket very quickly, and many fathers find themselves out of money with no resolution to their situation.

Be Your Best - Anything can be used against a parent if a custody battle is contentious. Think and act accordingly. 

About the Dads' Resource Center (www.dadsrc.org)

Founded by AccuWeather Founder and CEO Dr. Joel N. Myers, Dads' Resource Center is the leading advocate for single fathers. DRC believes that father absence is a major factor in nearly every social issue our country faces and that all able and willing dads should be allowed to uphold their sacred responsibility as fathers.

California Skateparks-designed Aljada Skatepark hosts world's best on their road to Paris.

Designed and built by California Skateparks, Aljada Skatepark is hosting the World Skate 2022 World Championships, January 29 - February 12, 2023.

The world's best skateboarders are performing their newest tricks this week at the massive Aljada Skatepark in Sharjah, UAE. Designed and built by California Skateparks, Aljada is hosting the World Skate 2022 World Championships for both Street and Park disciplines. After the new Champions are named next week, Aljada will remain as a permanent skatepark serving local youth.

"The facility is unique and has beginner, intermediate, and elite competition-level Street and Park courses and covers almost 90,000 square feet (8,360 square meters)," said California Skateparks VP Bill Minadeo. "This is an amazing opportunity for local youth to interact with the world's best skaters and host incredible events, like the World Championships."

The World Skate 2022 World Championships is a key qualifying event for the Paris 2024 Olympics. While the Street skaters have already competed in one qualifier in Rome last Summer, Sharjah will be the first chance for the Park skaters to earn important points to qualify for Paris.

This weekend the Street skaters have their chance to earn the World title, with the Finals in the Men's and Women's competition taking place. The Street course at Aljada features a mirrored core section, with identical elements such as stairs and rails providing equal opportunity for both goofy- and regular-stance skaters to perform. The outer perimeter of the course includes more free-form features, allowing skaters to explore opportunities for unique tricks and combinations.

Next week, the Park competitors have their turn and attention will shift to the massive bowl, which differs from recent competition bowl designs. The traditional single deep end is replaced by two nearly 10-foot (3-meter) deep ends on opposite sides of the bowl. To take full advantage of that, a long, sloping channel flows into the bowl from the deck, allowing skaters to begin their routines with maximum speed. The volcano flyover feature included in the Olympic Park course has been replaced by a hip/transfer section extending into the bowl from the side, instead of being the bowl's centerpiece.

Both the street course and competition bowl are the result of the California Skateparks design team's nearly two-decades experience creating elite competition courses. In consultation with many athletes competing in Sharjah, the designers modified traditional contest elements and complemented them with new features that match the skaters' growing level of competitiveness and evolving style of tricks. From early practice footage seen from Sharjah, evidence suggests that the California Skateparks design team got it right, including social-media posts showing how much fun visiting pros are having at Aljada. Which is great news for Sharjah's local skaters.
