It’s an uphill battle when fighting for fathers rights in Madison, Wisconsin. Dads rights discrimination is most common in paternity cases and divorces with very young children.
There are psychologists who have stated toddlers need one primary parent for their care in order to form secure attachments. This primary parent is almost always the mother.
In paternity cases, it is essentially by default that the mother is given custody and fathers rights are ignored. Wisconsin judges will not issue a court order until after the child is born, and by that time, the mother is already established as the primary caretaker even if it is only a matter of weeks or months.
The courts are very reluctant to disrupt that attachment even if it marginalizes dads rights. This means a court order is set when a child is very young that can be difficult to change as the child ages.
The child custody laws in Madison, Wisconsin, are not father-friendly. That’s why you need the fathers rights attorneys at Cordell & Cordell to maximize your involvement in your child’s life.
