This week, Cordell & Cordell Principal Partner Joseph Cordell talked about the importance of fathers and their parental rights on Love 860 radio, based in the Atlanta area. Mr. Cordell also contributed acolumn about financial advisors and preparing for clients going through divorce to Financial Advisor magazine.
Mr. Cordell discussed the importance of fatherhood, child custody and child support issues that often affect men and the changes he’s seen in the last few years with many men actively seeking out more parenting time with their children.
He mentioned that, in terms of custody, many men who are clients of Cordell & Cordell are “more ambitious than social workers, attorneys or ex [partners] might believe and want more than just scraps from the table.”
Mr. Cordell spoke about the recent trends with fathers, their roles and their motivations to have rights to their children.
“Originally, men were seen as paychecks, and it was believed that the mothers did all the nurturing,” explained Mr. Cordell. “But now, thankfully, guys are coming back and demanding their rightful place in their kids’ lives.”
