According to the Wall Street Journal, more and more family law firms are focusing on the men in the relationships. When it comes to a divorce, many men are worried that they will lose custody of their children or be saddled with a large alimony or child support payment. Now, lawyers are placing sports magazines in the lobby and offering some masculine aid to help the men in the relationship. According to one lawyer interviewed by the journal, fathers are obtaining more and more rights as time goes on.
In the past, attorneys admit that the justice system has been partially prejudiced towards men. Most of the time, this is because the women would stay home with the children. Because of their household services, they would merit alimony or spousal support. Because they had cultivated a daily bond with the children, they would normally win majority or full custody of them. While in former years it seemed that the courts were often on the women’s side, some men are realizing that with the right lawyer they can work their case in their favor.
As more and more women enter the work force and roles continue to change, men are also learning that they have a shot for custody, alimony, or whatever other outcomes they desire from their divorce. More and more women are being told to pay alimony to their ex-husbands. While judges still “wince” when they declare that a women needs to pay alimony, according to a lawyer at the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, it is a possibility. If you are looking for a divorce lawyer that will take your side and work hard to get you the outcome that you want, then you need to talk to a New York divorce lawyer at Meyers Law Group.
