Men going through a divorce experience the same range of emotions and difficulties as their spouses: anger, frustration, resentment, and sometimes, the desire to get even. Since men have historically been treated with an unfair bias against them in family court, it is important that men retain the services of an attorney who understands their disposition and will fight to protect their finances, parental rights, and lifestyle. At Gill Law Group, PC, our Irvine divorce lawyers frequently represent men and can provide the powerful advocacy you need to ensure your rights are protected.

Men have almost always had a difficult time obtaining certain rights when going through a divorce due to outdated laws and traditions that were created with the mindset of what a husband’s responsibilities are compared to that of his wife. One of the largest biases, known as the “Tender Years Doctrine,” gave women a considerable advantage in custody-related issues by assuming that a child should be placed in the care of the mother during their early childhood years, making it extremely difficult for men to gain fair custody rights of their children. While this practice has been found to be unconstitutional in several courts and has since been replaced by the “best interests of the child” doctrine, the associated beliefs and biases against men during divorce still remain in many cases.
