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.

    “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.

    “"High Net Worth Professionals"”
    I am a highly successful money manager and before meeting Lois Brenner, hiring a divorce attorney was a disaster. Two previous divorce attorneys really wasted my funds, and had no savvy when it came to asset and property distribution. Lois Brenner finally fixed the mess I was in. She and her team of financial experts, including attorney Matthew Ehrlich were able to prepare an asset and property distribution that was realistic, keeping in mind tax ramifications, and important distributions and allocations. They negotiated a thorough and financially sound divorce settlement. If you have a lot of assets, just any divorce attorney won’t do. You really need someone with a lot of knowledge. Lois Brenner and Matthew Ehrlich were really impressive. Thanks!!

    “Clever & Compassionate Attorney”
    I met with Lois Brenner nine months ago, and my life has been changed for the better! She and her legal team really encouraged me to leave a very abusive husband. They gave me the knowledge and courage to take the necessary legal steps. My parents were helping me and found Lois to be smart, and compassionate. My whole family felt really comfortable having her handle my case. I am finally divorced, away from an abusive man and ready to start a new life. I can’t thank Lois and her legal team enough for all the support I received. I got a much better settlement than I expected because they were relentless in locating money my husband had hidden. Thank you so much!

    “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.

    “Smart, tough, responsive Attorney !”
    When my daughter was sideswiped and served with a summons by her husband we called Lois Brenner. I had met Lois when she was giving a seminar on Marriage and Finances. I thought she was really smart. I never dreamt I would be calling her to help my daughter. When we went to see her she put our minds at ease. We immediately knew she was the attorney for us. She managed to negotiate a really good settlement with my son-in-law’s attorney. She was tough and always returned our phone calls and responded immediately to our emails. We even heard from her on weekends!! She was determined to keep us out of court and guided us every step of the way. She was our Angel!!! Mary B.
