Fathers - We All Had One, We All Need One
Fathers sometimes get lost in the divorce process. Children should be able to maintain or develop a strong relationship with each parent. This means crafting a parenting plan that is truly in the children's best interest. Fathers should not be kept from their kids because they have not gone to enough doctor appointments or can't remember last year's math teacher.
The court is guided by the "best interest of the child" principal. This often leads to questions about who takes the children to the doctor, who attends parent-teacher conferences, who puts the child to bed at night, or who cooks meals for the child. There will also be the big question: Who is the emotional parent? Let's face it, no matter how progressive Seattle claims to be, Moms still do much of the emotional parenting.
Does that mean that fathers are not important to their children? No! Fathers, you need an attorney who understands the important role you play in your family. Are you the breadwinner, operating with your spouse under a clear division of labor you both agreed upon? Do you feel like you can do nothing right because Mom always thinks she does it better? Do you feel like your role is to explore the world with your child because Mom handles the more day-to-day matters?
Fathers, you need an attorney who understands the importance of your role and doesn't expect that your emotional parenting will mirror your spouse's. Let's face it, mothers and fathers are different. Fathers and fathers are different. You need an attorney who understands your value and will help you demonstrate the importance of your role as a father to your spouse, the court, or a mediator.
Where would Russell Wilson be without his Father? Where would Peyton Manning be without Archie? Don't think that fathers are only important to sons. Many of the most accomplished women in the world credit their relationships with their father for their current successes.
