“Speaking of perjury [involving false accusations of abuse]: When you place at the feet of a party in litigation a weapon, when so much that’s so important is on the table, and they can so easily reach down and grab that weapon, are we to believe that it’s not going to be used? This is not a weapon that’s equally available to both sides of the table.”
THE THIRD INSTALLMENT OF THIS 3-PART INTERVIEW!
The newest installment of DadsDivorce Live features Cordell & Cordell Principal, Joseph Cordell and Stanley Charles Thorne discussing the real-world inequality and bias that exists in the family law system. Because of gender bias, unfair distribution and tacit encouragement of the use of legal “weapons” in court, men are discouraged from contesting their STBX wives’ child custody demands, resulting in a fatherless society that harms children.
Join us for this three-part series examining Thorne’s origins as an advocate, unfair and unwritten “policies” that create an uneven starting point for distribution of children after divorce.
Cordell and Thorne discuss the general problems that dictate dysfunctional practices in family court. From Federal financial incentives that steer child support policies, to the blatent bias of the Violence Against Women Act, to custody “beliefs” that contradict scientifically accepted social studies regarding the best interests of developing children.
Joseph E. Cordell is the Principal at Cordell and Cordell, PC, which he founded in 1990 with his wife, Yvonne.
