Some fathers claim mothers favored in child custody cases

When a couple divorces or separates there are a host of issues about which decisions must be made. For those Connecticut couples who have children, child custody is one of the most important decisions there is. Many fathers, however, have been claiming that they're getting the short end of the stick when it comes to their kids after they've parted ways with their mothers. 

Many divorced men feel like the system has let them down when it comes to their children. A number of men claim they are not getting the same rights when it comes to issues like child custody and child support. They believe the law looks upon women as being the better caregivers and so it is more difficult for them to get fair treatment in the court system. The men say they're often dealing with old-fashioned judges who believe custody should be given to mothers.

Some fathers are also finding it difficult to pay child support, but professionals encourage them to make an effort and at least pay something if they've been ordered to do so by a court. Support payments can be reduced upon a showing of a substantial change in financial circumstances, but a family court judge must make that decision, so fathers who find it difficult financially must be persistent in petitioning the court. Hiring a lawyer in these instances is a wise decision.

Connecticut fathers who have questions regarding child custody may find the answers from an experienced family law attorney. A lawyer can clarify confusing issues surrounding things like protection orders, visitation and support payments. Having some knowledge of the law may make concerns regarding child custody less daunting.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
