Christian, who manages Cordell & Cordell’s Madison and Milwaukee offices, explained that many fathers still face a bias and stigma when they enter a family law courtroom.
It doesn’t help that the vague placement standard – “the best interest of the child” – can vary drastically not only by jurisdiction but also from judge to judge.
Erica Christian on “Outside The Box”:
Cordell & 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.”
Cordell 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.”
