History has shown that when it comes to child custody battles, the courts have often sided with mothers. This is often attributed to mother's often taking more of a role as the caretaker for their children. The old-school family philosophy traditionally had the mother staying home to raise the children and take care of the home, while the father was considered the "breadwinner" who provides for the family.
Society has changed over the last half century however, and women have begun to play a far more important and regular role in the workplace, often shifting previous "traditional" roles between mother and father. What does this mean during child custody during divorce? It could mean all the difference in the world.
Although not always easy to prove, many courts throughout the United States are acknowledging these changing roles and are awarding the father child custody. As we have stressed many times before, the primary focus by the courts is to assure that the best interests of the children are met. This means that the courts will determine who is considered more of the caretaker and will weigh that role heavy in the decision-making process. Having strong representation at your side can make a difference.
