Washington Fathers' Rights Attorneys

Are men treated fairly in court?

In the past, family courts were notoriously biased against men. For many years, the court system assumed that women should retain child custody and fathers should pay child support and spousal maintenance (alimony).

Fortunately, most judges today find such assumptions absurd. Most Washington family courts at present are driven by the best interest of the child, not archaic stereotypes of men's and women's roles.

Instead of assuming that a mother deserves custody, the court will determine which parental situation is best for the child. Similarly, the court will not assume that men should always pay spousal support and child support, opening the possibility for men to receive payment.
