A greater number of single-dad wins in family court hearings shows a growing acceptance of new families. Furthermore, statistics show that in the past 10 years, the number of families led by single fathers has increased by 27.3 percent.
8 percent of American families with children include a single father. In 1950, 1.1 percent of American families with children included a single dad. Single mothers head 7.2 percent of all American families, including families without children. Of all American families, single fathers lead 2.4 percent.
A family law professor at the University of Notre Dame says, “If the dad is really interested in getting custody and wants to have a relationship with his kids, he is far more successful than he was 20 years ago.”
