MensHealth.com examined “The Custody Bias” and, with the help of Cordell & Cordell Principal Partner Joseph Cordell, answered the questions: Is the justice system unfair to fathers seeking child custody? And what can dads do to keep their kids?

“Somebody is going to talk about the fact that you weren’t there and your wife was,” Cordell told MensHealth.com. Prepare, and be honest, so you won’t be caught off guard. “Divorce is an ugly thing. That’s why you don’t want to go there unless you have to.”
