“You’re fostering a starting point that says, ‘One parent is going to be a loser and one is going to be a winner. One is going to be marginalized and diminished in the eyes of a child. One is going to be magnified and empowered in the eyes of that child.'”
WATCH THE FIRST 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.
