Father's Rights in Modern Families

There was a time when fathers weren’t favored as parents.  As a matter of law, custody defaulted to the mother. The “Tender Years” doctrine held that mothers made better parents for younger children. Today, there is no gender preference in ANY law of ANY state for custody or parenting time.  But the fear fathers feel still exists.
