Fathers’ and Men’s Rights Attorneys

Divorce and Family Law

Men and Fathers are faced with many different challenges than the typical mother in a case. On the national average, approximately sixty-seven percent (67%) or two-thirds (2/3) of all divorces are initially filed by the wife. What this means is – more often than not – the men / fathers in divorce cases are caught off guard, with no warning, or time to prepare for a divorce – and have to spend a lot of time early on playing catch-up and fighting to level the playing field to protect their rights. It is important to know – and many men are lied to by their wives and their wife’s attorney – if you have been served with a divorce unexpectedly – you are now in a contested divorce. Although you may settle the matter later – technically and legally – you are not in an uncontested divorce. The rules are different – and you should seek legal help asap.

It is not uncommon for a woman filing a divorce to already have moved assets, separated accounts, lined up witnesses and made plans with friends and family to get affidavits to use in court. Women frequently already have a plan in place to get alimony, child support and child custody as soon as possible at a temporary hearing. In addition, women seeking divorce have usually already made a list of assets they want and have given their attorney. All of this being done in secretly, putting the husband as a strategic disadvantage.
