It is a questions I hear a lot: Why Men Need A Lawyer In A Child Custody Fight?
When looking for a child custody lawyer for men, it is important to understand that a competent and ethical attorney should be focused primarily on the rights and interests of the client. The greatest strengths an attorney can offer a client are:
- Competent analysis and strategy
- Thorough construction of a case
- Credibility before the court
Are Men Treated Fairly in Family Law Court?
Historically, men have not always received a fair chance in family law matters. For many years, courts presumed that mothers should always get custody of the children and fathers should almost always pay child support and maintenance (alimony).
Fortunately, most judges and now find these presumptions ridiculous. Most courts now favor more neutral and fact-driven resolutions of family law matters. Rather than presume the mother should get custody of the child, courts instead look at what custody arrangement is truly in the child’s best interests.
Interestingly, it was always my experience that male judges tended to be tougher on men than female judges. With the increased number of women judges on the bench, the historical paternalism of older male judges has faded to a significant degree. Women judges are professionals who work hard, balance family and career, and rely on their spouses to share responsibility for the nurture and care of their children. In some instances, men may be better off having a female judge decide their case.
