Cordell & Cordell was featured in the international German news magazine Die Welt. Principal Partner Joseph Cordell explains the difficulties that fathers in the United States face in the current family court systems.

A recent Midwest divorce proceeding involved a father leaving his wife due to her alcoholism. Despite the evidence against her, the court awarded the mother custody and the father lost not only his children but $20,000 in attorney and court fees.

“It is sad and frustrating,” said Cordell. “The judgment shows that women in divorce proceedings use weapons against which men stand little chance. In divorce proceedings, men are entirely and clearly at a disadvantage, financially as well as morally.”
