Single-dad wins in family court show acceptance of new families

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.”

Mother denied custody because of cancer diagnosis

A North Carolina divorce and child custody case has gained significant attention from the media and internet users after a judge denied custody of two children to their mother because she had cancer.

Over 100,000 people have signed a petition online titled “Do not allow NC Judge to take Alaina Giordano’s children because she has cancer.”  There has also been a debate between lawyers on the American Bar Association’s website.

Currently, Giordano’s two children (11 and 6-years old) live with her in Durham.  However, according to the judge’s ruling, the kids must move to Chicago to live with their father.
