What Rights Do Men Have?
Men have equal rights as women do in a divorce proceeding. It is important to have a plan and facts laid out to get the result you are looking for.
Your rights as a man going through a divorce are typically the same as anyone. You don't get special rights and you shouldn't get less rights.
A lot of times, what I’ll do is sit down with a person who comes in that’s going to be hiring me or I’m going to be working on some aspect of their case. We’ll go through the actual facts for their case because that’s going to be very different from somebody else. So we look at that and we set up a case plan and a strategy to get you the results that you’re looking for.
The family law process isn’t just about the law. It’s about getting through something and almost keeping your mental status straight because, a lot of times, the person who gets the best outcome is the one who can stick straight and stick with a plan the longest. Because of the emotional rollercoaster that comes with a divorce, a lot of it is guidance through the process of setting yourself up in a particular place, at a particular time to know what’s kind of coming and what needs to be done. I think what I bring to the table that somebody else might not is that passion, that experience, that empathy of being in my clients’ shoes.
