Although society has evolved and gender roles have changed, negative and outdated assumptions in courts put men at a disadvantage.

Although over 37% of women earn more than their husbands, courts still view the male as the breadwinner and the female as the caregiver. Men continue struggling for sufficient time with children and being a part of their child’s life.

Women in America are 7% more likely to default on the court-ordered payment of child support. Yet, males are awarded sole custody in only 18% of cases. In Canada, this number is 7% and in the UK, 13%.

Although statistics on divorce outcomes favour women, this does not stem from a bias against men.

As more men attempt to gain child custody, they battle a strong bias (in the custody model) favouring mothers.

Stanley Charles Thorne, a father’s rights activist, points out that 85% of custody battles are won by mothers in the US. Men are not only disadvantaged by gender bias but also by the federal money motive, which is funded through grants under the Social Security Act.
