It's unfortunate, but more times than not we see loving fathers getting a raw deal because the Family Court Judge simply has his or her blinders on when comes to who fits the perfect mold as a primary custodial parent.
To be fair, we believe that this has more to do with our subconscious than some malfeasance on the part of judges (though we have seen this too). We are naturally hardwired to see mothers as the loving and nurturing parent, while fathers are the "providers," always out scavenging for the next meal, and thus cannot be counted on to be present at all times.
This paradigm is finally changing in America with the help of the internet and various fathers rights communities. We are seeing for the first time just how widespread discrimination is when it comes to a father's constitutional right to rear his children.
West Virginia is still lagging behind when it comes to seeing fathers as co-equals in marriage and rearing children. That's why we are one of the few who offers services as West Virginia Fathers Rights Lawyers. We believe that every child needs a father. We have the expertise it takes to get you a fair shake in front of West Virginia family courts. Call us to learn more.
