It is no secret that it has been a long, uphill battle for fathers in divorce. While most court systems claim that they treat fathers equally, the numbers don’t lie. According to a government census, approximately 13.7 million parents have custody of a child whose other parent lives elsewhere. Only about 17 percent of those parents were fathers. What is even more shocking, about half of all fathers who have zero custody rights are 100 percent financially responsible for their children. These numbers don’t indicate that the system is fair towards dads; if anything, it reinforces the stereotype that men are only good for their wallets and women only good for their child-rearing capabilities.
