New York Fathers’ Rights Attorney

How the Liberalization of Divorce Has Affected Fathers’ Rights

In today’s day and age, you may see that some American families have developed into matriarchies. Many fathers have been reduced to nothing more than sperm donors, and are left fighting for the right to be a full-fledged parent. The men’s and fathers’ rights movements draw energy from this cultural disruption. The liberalization of divorce, which removed the concept of fault from a marital breakdown, has also made it easier for one spouse to end their marriage against the wishes of the other.

While no-fault divorce has opened the door for many people to escape “loveless marriages,” fathers have contended that the liberalization of divorce has put men at an unfair advantage – particularly in the areas of child custody, visitation, and support. Ultimately, the collision between fathers’ rights and a heightened sense of women’s independence has politicized marriage and family law. The result is that men and fathers are left feeling not only threatened, but victimized.

Creating Better Solutions Through Divorce Mediation

For some fathers, unwanted divorce and non-custodial parenthood have undermined their involvement in the lives of their children. Many feel as through their roles have been reduced to that of an occasional visitor – which is devastating not only for fathers, but also for their children. The fact of the matter is that the road to divorce is never easy, even when the divorce is uncontested and mutual.

When children are involved, seeking a divorce can be significantly more complicated. At Lois M. Brenner, Esq., we believe that divorce mediation can help pave the way to better relationships, not only between divorcing spouses, but between parents and their children. In fact, more and more of our clients are using mediation to create parenting schedules that favor a health relationship with both parents. It can be surprisingly and stunningly effective with Lois Brenner’s help.

Divorce mediation makes it possible for fathers to be more than just an “occasional visitor.” Find out if this process is right for you by calling our New York divorce attorney at (646) 663-4546.
