"Another survey, this one commissioned by the Minnesota Supreme Court, found that a majority (56%) of the state’s judges, both male and female, agreed with the statement, “I believe young children belong with their mother.” Only a few of the judges indicated that they would need more information about the mother before they could answer. Fathers, one judge explained, “must prove their ability to parent while mothers are assumed to be able.” Nearly all attorneys (94% of male attorneys and 84% of female attorneys) said that all judges exhibited prejudice against fathers at least some of the time.
Judicial bias against fathers is also judicial bias against mothers and children. It’s nothing more than the obvious. Take a father out of a child’s life and the child is damaged, all but invariably. There’s far too much science on the matter to deny the fact that children need both their parents. And yet family courts take one parent away from children all the while intoning the mantra of the “best interests of the child.”"
Okay, so something I don't get is- shouldn't BOTH parents have to prove that they can care for their child? That way they know the child is being put in safe care, right? I don't understand why the courts favor the mother in these cases. They should be deciding who gets custody based on which parent is the most stable and where the child would be best to be at. It's not right that mothers are almost automatically favored over fathers in custody cases. Opinions on this?
