Happy Father’s Day from Cordell & Cordell
Father’s Day is a holiday set aside to celebrate all the sacrifices dads make for their children throughout the year. Too often, the contributions fathers make to their families are underappreciated. On Father’s Day, however, these unsung heroes are given the recognition they deserve.
Unfortunately, divorce can result in dads being relegated to the role of secondary parent. The tragic truth is there still are far too many stereotypes pervading the family court system that sever the unique bond dads have with their kids.
For nearly 30 years, Cordell & Cordell has battled to preserve the role fathers play in their children’s lives. Fathers’ rights is central to the firm’s mission, and our child custody lawyers for fathers give dads a partner they know they can count on during an uncertain and frightening time.
Kids count on fathers
The reason Cordell & Cordell’s fathers’ rights attorneys are so passionate about advocating for dads going through divorce is because they realize how much children need that influence in their lives.
There is a vast body of research that shows how vital dads are to the upbringing for kids. We know that children with active and engaged fathers are:
- Half as likely to be depressed
- 75% less likely to have a teenage pregnancy
- Twice as likely to go to college or find a stable job after high school
- 80% less likely to spend time in prison
Just because a child’s parents divorce should not mean they lose access to their father.
