Fathers' Rights

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.

    “The most understanding and accommodating Firm”
    Dealing with this firm was a gift from above. They were very understanding and made the whole process painless. They are open after regular work hours which was super convenient for a working professional. As a Surgeon in NYC going through this process the firm was very accommodating to my changing schedule. I am forever grateful that the firm was able to find a great solution to all issues so that everyone was taken into account and came to a responsible agreement. Thank you Lois Brenner you are the best!

    “My husband and I are grateful :)”
    Everything you said about mediation was true. My husband and I really connected in a positive way working out the details of our divorce in mediation with you. The arguing was endless but we finally heard each other. You have a lot of patience. The property discussions made everything so emotional. You kept us focused and stopped us from rehashing the past. We tell everyone about you. Hopefully none of our friends will divorce but if they do we will tell them they need you.

    “Lois is a "Rock Star"”
    Lois is a “Rock Star” I was very worried about my daughter who was in a really bad marriage. I started researching divorce attorneys and found Lois Brenner. I called her, discussed my daughter’s horrible marriage and she agreed to meet with us. Since my daughter’s husband wanted out of the marriage too (he was cheating), Lois suggested she help them dissolve their marriage in mediation. To my surprise it worked out. Lois was able to keep my daughter and husband from fighting during their sessions, and she helped them resolve all their financial issues. Since I was paying the fees to help my daughter, not having to go to court saved us a great deal of money. As a father, I am truly grateful for everything Lois did. Her talks with me in the beginning of the process, to calm me down, really helped. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of divorce.

    “Brenner divorce method really works!!”
    I had read about Lois’ unusual divorce method in one of her blog posts. It was refreshing to see someone was working with the psychological issues in divorce. My husband is bipolar and getting him to agree to a divorce and commit to the process was tough. When we met with Lois she really understood him. She immediately identified his mental health issues, and because she has a psych background, she was empathetic to his needs and was skillful at guiding him through her divorce mediation process. It took a while but she really got us to a point where we could actually discuss things without my husband blowing up. Her method is unique and it really helped in our situation. She actually recommended a great psychiatrist who changed my husband’s meds at her urging (she has a medical degree too), and my husband is coping much better. We can’t thank her enough for her compassion and advice! If you need a divorce attorney, especially if mental illness is a part of the fabric of your marriage, go see Lois! Thanks Lois 

    “LOIS AND MATT ARE LIT!”
    You two are really the dynamic duo! I can’t thank you both enough for the incredible job you did on my case. As a young career woman and working mother of a toddler I could not have been in better hands. You really toughened me up and guided me when I was feeling really lost. I was afraid of my husband’s clever antics but you worked hard on my case and encouraged me to fight. The settlement I received exceeded my expectations. You both listened, always returned e-mails, phone calls and even reached out to me on the weekends when I was having trouble. If anyone is going through a divorce and needs the best people to fight for you call Lois and Matt. It was the best thing I ever did. There are no words to express how grateful I am.
