Joe Cordell on Bloomberg Radio: More Men Awarded Alimony

Joseph CordellCordell & Cordell CEO Joseph Cordell appeared on Bloomberg Radio’s “Taking Stock with Pimm Fox” show to discuss positive trends related to men in divorce cases, particularly the increase in men receiving spousal support.

Judges are more frequently awarding maintenance to guys as women continue to advance in the workplace and contribute more to the family finances.

“As a firm, we’re glad to see judges are increasingly willing to ignore gender in awarding maintenance, and this is something radically different than in the past,” said Mr. Cordell.

Joe Cordell On Bobby Petrino, Marital Misconduct

Joseph CordellCordell & Cordell co-founder Joseph Cordell appeared on Yahoo Sports Radio Network to discuss disgraced football coach Bobby Petrino’s case and how marital misconduct impacts divorce for men.

Petrino, a married father of four children, was fired as head football coach at the University of Arkansas after he covered up he was having an affair with Jessica Dorell, a 25-year-old Arkansas athletic department employee whom he hired. Their affair was revealed after Petrino and Dorrell were involved in a motorcycle accident.

“Whenever you have misconduct like this it has effects that ramify throughout the entire case,” Cordell told host Craig Shemon. “There is potential civil liability of which a judgment could affect marital assets. Dissipating assets, such as giving $20,000 to his girlfriend as has been reported, is also frowned upon by family law judges.”

Joe Cordell On Using Facebook To Obtain Restraining Orders

Joseph Cordell“If you are an evil, vindictive woman who wants to ruin your husband’s life and take your son’s father away from him completely – all you need to do is say that you’re scared of your husband or domestic partner and they’ll take him away!”

Mark Byron wrote this post on his Facebook page in the midst of his divorce. His wife found out about the post, complained to the judge that it was a violation of Mark’s restraining order, and the judge ordered Mark to make daily apologies to his wife on Facebook or face 60 days in jail.

Cordell & Cordell co-founder Joseph Cordell appeared on the “Eddie & Tracy Show” on 700 WLW radio in Cincinnati to discuss how this case illustrates how vulnerable men are to a judge’s liberal interpretation of order of protection statutes.

“This is where the legislature needs to step in and change the language in these statutes so that something more convincing is needed to issue an order of protection other than merely a statement from a party looking to gain an upper hand in the divorce and custody case,” Cordell said. “In family court it’s surprisingly easy to get an order issued that often will last several weeks or months before the accused (usually the guy) can present his side of the story.”

Cordell frequently refers to protective orders as “tactical nuclear weapons” because with a small statement, the man can be forced to stay out of the home, barred from parenting time, and prevented from any contact with his children.

“I’m not picking on women as being inherently more manipulative than guys, but whenever you have a war over the things that are the most important you, such as your kids, it’s understandable that when you give one side of the table a nuclear weapon that side is going to use it,” Cordell said. “These orders give women a clear edge in a custody battle.”

Attorney Jana Palko On The Dangers Of Revealing Too Much Online

Pittsburgh Divorce Lawyer Jana PalkoCordell & Cordell Divorce Lawyer Jana Palko appeared on Pittsburgh radio station 1020 KDKA to discuss how posting too much information online can affect domestic litigation.

The consequences of not being careful online is also listed as one of “The 10 Stupidest Mistakes Men Make When Facing Divorce,” according to Joseph Cordell’s book.

Posting personal information can be used against you in a divorce proceeding, such as if you post information about your estranged spouse on sites like DatingPsychos.com, yet this happens all the time, according to Palko.

“If it’s constant release of information or putting someone in danger you can certainly contact the police,” Palko said.

If it happens during a divorce, your divorce attorney can help you get that information removed. If not, you will have to file a civil action, which can be complicated and pricey. You can also contact the Internet Crime Complaint Center.

Joe Cordell Talks Divorce Rights For Men In Wisconsin

Joseph CordellCordell & Cordell co-founder Joseph Cordell appeared this morning on “Outside The Box” with Mitch Henck on WIBA 1310 in Madison, Wisconsin, where he discussed fathers’ rights and took questions from callers about how to protect themselves in divorce cases.

Henck brought up the fact that there are more fathers who do not pay child support to which Cordell replied:

“What becomes publicized is that statistic, but since most guys do not get custody that puts most guys in the position to be paying child support. But what isn’t brought up is guys are consistently denied visitation,” Cordell said. “It’s a chronic issue, but it gets no play. Of course being denied the right to see is children is going to impact a guy’s willingness to hand over money when he knows a good portion of child support probably is not going to the children.”

Mitch Henck radio showCordell added: “If a guy is denied his visitation, he has to get a lawyer, spend thousands of dollars, and spend months in court. By contrast, if a mother doesn’t get paid her child support, she can get a garnishment and get the guy in front of a judge on charges of contempt within days.”
