Should Divorcing Dads Automatically Get 50-50 Time With Kids? Illinois Dads Group pushes for new laws.
“All I want is half the time and half the say.” Divorcing dads frustrated with divorce courts have banded together to fight what they claim is unfair treatment in custody cases which favor moms. But is equal always fair? What’s best for the children?
Experienced family law judges say that laws which require 50-50 time and equal say so don’t leave courts with the discretion to determine creative solutions which are best for the kids. Some therapists say when children are allowed to have a voice in the process, they prefer living in one home primarily, and not going back and forth.
Do you think 50-50 custody should be mandatory? Or should the courts consider the circumstances of each case?
